The Revelation Cruiser is a Tier 3 hull with advanced Miner Rebellion technology.
As a cruiser, this ship has great defensive capability and is designed to soak up damage.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Revelation Cruiser is a strong, versatile ship. With the ability to equip two shields, this ship can absorb a lot of damage with minimal repair time. Its four armor slots ensure the survivability of the ship even after shields are depleted, while its four weapon slots give the ship decent firepower.
It is a common sniper decoy in situations where the Nighthawk Frigate would not work, e.g. against homing weapons or simply too much long-range weaponry. Repulsor Shields and other rechargeable shields can take advantage of the dual shield slots to become less susceptible to shield depletion. Strafe Thrusters can improve the ship's ability to dodge incoming projectiles, buying the time needed to initiate shield regeneration.
At Mk IV, the Revelation Cruiser obtains a 5th armor slot, becoming even tougher to destroy. With each mark upgrade, this ship gains bonus damage against frigates and cutters, although these ships often choose to run away when faced against upgraded Revelation Cruisers.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Revelation Cruisers are slow and thus vulnerable to kiting, both from long-range frigates and battleships. Therefore, a good build for fleet combat should use Rear Thrusters and weapons with decent range to prevent this from happening.
Destroyers that are Mk III or above make short work of Revelation Cruisers, destroying them within seconds.
