The Rancor Battleship is a Tier 1 hull with primitive Miner Rebellion technology.

As a battleship, this ship has bonus range and duplicate weapons for each firing arc, dealing massive damage from a safe distance.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Rancor Battleships are incredibly cheap but also very reliable and powerful as it can equip many weapons for its tier with an extremely high maximum mass.

Like other battleships, this ship has slightly extended range, allowing it to kite other ships, especially cruisers. Battleships have a broadside firing arc that allows them to fire from both sides simultaneouely, doubling their damage output.

The Rancor Battleship's high firepower can easily destroy unsuspecting frigates. It can also fire upon destroyers sooner, reducing the amount of damage taken from closing the distance. Some players use this ship to wreck havoc on low-level bases from a distance.

This ship is widely used in auto-farming fleets. Auto-farming is done by attacking many NPC Targets using multiple fleets, allowing the battle to proceed in full AI mode. This vastly improves the speed at which you collect resources, blueprints and/or event points.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Battleships are rather slow in combat. Unless equipped with Rotation Thrusters, many will find themselves outmanuevered by frigates, being unable to turn quickly enough to keep the enemy inside your deadly firing arcs. However, the loss of Rear Thrusters means that you cannot kite enemies properly.

In general, battleships have relatively high unladen mass, which is a big "waste" of fleet mass since you aren't using it for any purpose other than the ship itself. This often limits how many battleships you can use in a fleet for a given Fleet Bay level.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • You receive a free Rancor Battleship on your 5th day since playing.
  • In the early stages of the game, TheHolyAsdf created a popular auto-farming build using the Rancor Battleship (shown below). It is now useless due to the Grand Rebalance, which vastly increased the repair time of shields in general.
  • A bonus to DPS was added to battleship mark upgrades around the middle of 2018.
