Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Ragnarok Carrier offers one of the best support fields, the Agility Field, which boosts the speed of all other friendly ships within.
In fleet combat, this allows your frigates, cutters, cruisers and destroyers to chase down enemies, while simultaneously enhancing the kiting ability of battleships, the latter being the prime method of farming Tier 5 NPC Targets and below.
In base attacks, the Agility Field also assists sniper decoys to dodge projectiles and blitz ships to close in on the enemy Bridge.
When fighting against other carrier fleets, regenerating shields such as the Diffuser Shield are common to provide long-lasting protection against waves of squadrons by allowing them to recharge in between.
In terms of thrusters, Fusion Thrusters should be equipped to compensate for the ship's low forward and turning speed. Strafing is irrelevant due to its massive hitbox.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The Ragnarok Carrier cannot boost itself with the Agility Field, making it just as slow as other carriers. Against a blitz attack, you are either forced to protect your carrier or let it die while your other ships make an escape.
Although fleets with the Agility Field are more versatile, they lack the raw damage output of those under the Ion Field. As a result, if you are unable to take advantage of the speed boost (especially if both sides have the same range), you will probably lose to the other player.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- It was the first carrier to ever appear in the game.
- It is listed an "Uncommon" hull from the VSec Marshal battle logs. This indicated carriers would be released continuously in larger numbers, which held true for the event Arms Race, where every VSec Regiment had the same layout, and this also held true in Countermeasures, with VSec Augments, and it finally became available in the event Face Off.
