The Vindicator Cutter is a Tier 6 hull with the ability to resist both Alien and Plasma Damage. It provides the Harmonic Agility bonus which increases the mobility of your entire fleet.

As a cutter, this ship has fair durability and superior forward speed, suitable for rushing into enemy formations.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Vindicator Cutter is the fastest player-obtainable ship in the game, able to reach over 900 m/s when equipped with Harmonic Chase Thruster, being inside an Agility Field and receiving a 30% Harmonic Agility bonus. It can even outrun other cutters as a result of the extra Harmonic Agility, making it the best fleet holder. In addition, this ship retains the high acceleration of the Decimator Cutter.

Note that the maximum Harmonic Agility bonus is equivalent to an infinite Agility Field for your ships.

This ship is quite durable (3 armor slots) and deals a lot of damage (5 weapon slots), being able to survive the onslaught of Enforcer Battleships and Ancient Hives, getting in range to annihilate them in a matter of seconds.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

While it might win against many fleets, the Vindicator Cutter is commonly regarded as a no-skill ship just like any other cutter (just point and click) and will almost certainly take a ton of damage from every battle.

Like other cutters, it is extremely vulnerable to squadrons due to the narrow firing arc, enabling Paladin Carriers to turn the tide of battle quite easily. Never build a pure Twinfire Beam fleet or you will suffer greatly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There used to be a bug that gave Mk II+ Vindicator Cutters less acceleration than the Mk I version.
