General[edit | edit source]
The Xeno Armored Thruster is an advanced version of Armored Thrusters, taking up less mass while giving more health. It is limited to T6 hulls and above.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
Xeno Armored Thrusters are useful on the vast majority of ships, similar to Armored Thrusters. The extra forward speed allows your ships to better kite and catch enemy targets.
Xeno Armored Thrusters give a massive health bonus; this has a repair to health ratio of 0.5, which is better than all pre-Xeno Division tech. As a result, ships equipped with this thruster become tougher and still retain good repair efficiency.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Xeno Armored Thrusters turn slightly slower than Fusion Thrusters, although this is not much of a disadvantage compared to the various benefits.
The Harmonic Chase Thruster supersedes it in terms of agility, at the cost of extra mass (only for levels II and III). It does not provide any health bonus, however.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The winner for killing the most Geir's Fortresses during Eradication received an Elite Suppressor armed with Xeno Seeker Missiles as well as the new Xeno Armored Thruster, before the tech was even introduced into the game as a blueprint.
- It is believed to be a remake of the Strike Thrusters because they share the same icon.
- This item's build time was significantly reduced during the late April 2019 update as summarized here.
