The Imperator Dreadnought is the Altairian, and the last, dreadnought released for the Tier 8 season.

Note that Tier 8 ships have a fixed repair time which is not affected by equipment.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Imperator Dreadnought is the tankiest out of the three Tier 8 dreadnoughts, with boosts to both its shields and armor. Its Reckoning overdrive regenerates 100% of its maximum shield energy over 5 seconds whenever it takes a relatively low amount of shield damage (around 10% of maximum energy), which essentially makes the ship impossible to destroy without the use of shield bypass.

It can launch up to three squadrons depending on the number of enemies in its weapon arc, which deal further damage. The Disruption Squad in particular is most useful because it can apply weapon disruption, severely reducing the enemy's ability to deal damage. Whenever any of them is destroyed or simply runs out of flight time, the dreadnought gains the ability to apply weapon disruption as well, further debuffing the enemies.

As the squadrons are only launched when the Imperator Dreadnought gets to fire at its target, enemies are unable to exploit the squadrons such that the shot fires through them and hits the Imperator while remaining out of the Imperator's weapon range.

Compared to other Tier 8 Altairian ships, the dreadnought applies a much higher level of phase hacking, shutting down almost all enemy attempts to enter Phase State. This is in addition to the standard screen damage bonus which already counters enemy Pharmakon ships.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The squadrons' damage is not actually that great considering that the dreadnought's DPS bonus does not apply to them. Moreover, unlike spawned ships such as Zealots for its predecessor the Orator Dreadnought, squadrons are unable to draw attention and are thus useless for decoying.

The Imperator Dreadnought can still take massive damage if the enemy has shield bypass. This includes the case when it fights the ship it is supposed to counter, the Zettabyte Dreadnought.
