Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Nova Missile can deal widespread explosive damage to enemy ships due to the number of times it explodes. It also has a relatively decent range, on par with the Vector Torpedo. The missiles also travel relatively fast in combat.
It has a relatively large AoE Radius as well, which can be supplemented by equipping specials such as Volatile Fuel. Its speed can also be increased with the help of Neutrino Fusion, or it can be granted Shield Bypass with Palladium Munition.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
There is a noticeable amount of spread in between the 2 missiles it launches with each volley, ships can take advantage of this and hide within the space of both missiles, allowing them to close in on the enemy ship with this weapon and get in firing range. The spread is wide enough to allow a single ship to pass through. The weapon also has a large minimum range as well.
