The Inquisitor Destroyer is the first Tier 7 Destroyer, and the Altairian Destroyer, designed for siege warfare. As it opens fire, its Ballista Overdrive periodically activates, enabling its weapons to travel extremely far and pierce many enemies.
Any weapon equipped to this ship has 500 m extra projectile range, enabling their shots to travel further and hit distant enemies outside of their targeting range.
Note that Tier 7 ships (except dreadnoughts) have a fixed repair time which is not affected by equipment.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Inquisitor Destroyer has increased projectile range and module damage, making it well suited to destroying bases and outposts extremely effectively.
Its Ballista Overdrive enables its weapons to hit many enemies in a line, and can even pierce through the walls created by Altairian Pylon Emitters.
As an Altairian ship, it deals bonus damage against the Pharmakon faction.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Like all destroyers, With a slow turning speed, narrow firing arc and only one shield slot, blitz attacks can overpower an Inquisitor Destroyer fleet if a pincer approach is adopted. It is equally vulnerable to squadrons as well. Use Bastion Cruisers to protect them from incoming attack or decoy incoming fire away.
Player modules now have Anti-Pierce which completely blocks Piercing effects, greatly devaluing the ship's overdrive.
