General[edit | edit source]

The Skirmish Armor is a powerful resistance armor that takes reduced damage from Energy and Explosive weapons. It can only be equipped on Iron Star Company Hulls.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Skirmish Armor is overall more mass-efficient than Zynthium, especially in close combat, since most weapons that are used at this range are either Energy- or Explosive-type. They also counter the powerful Unstable Reactor which does Explosive Damage.

Equipping Kinetic Resistors along with this armor gives your ships decent resistance against all three traditional damage types, allowing them to fight in various scenarios.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Skirmish Armor is ineffective in sniper fleets since most of the damage comes from Kinetic weapons, which this armor does not resist.

They are also useless against the infamous Infernal Wave Driver which is overused on Damocles Destroyers, destroying your ships in as few as three hits.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Skirmish Armor is the first ship armor that resists certain damage types, making it the first "resistance armor".
  • An update that reduced the Skirmish Armor's resistance to 3%/6%/10% Energy and 0% Explosive had been met with revolt by the vast majority of players; it was swiftly reverted.
