General[edit | edit source]

The Neutron Driver is a unique Kinetic weapon with large area of effect, but is exclusive to destroyers.

It fires a large dome-shaped projectile that causes a large explosion upon impact or reaching maximum range.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Neutron Drivers have large splash damage

Neutron Drivers have decent mass efficiency as a Kinetic weapon and can wreak havoc on clustered ships and modules with their splash ability. They can be considered a poor man's version of the Shatter Driver when fighting tightly-packed Alien outposts, effective only at the lower levels.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Neutron Drivers have a very narrow range band: they are significantly outranged by Siege Drivers and hence less preferable in most base attacks, while the massive minimum range makes them useless against rush fleets.

Neutron Drivers have a relatively slow projectile speed, making them rather easy to dodge even when boosted with Iridium Magnets V.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Neutron Driver closely resembles a crossbow, ironically more so than the Archer Beam.
