The Cyclops is a siege-focused Dreadnought that is extremely powerful against hull health.

   

Description

The Cyclops was the first siege Dreadnought that was added into the game. It has decent Shields and 6 Medium Railguns for shredding base Hull, backed up by it's Lasers to bring down enemy Shields.

Interior

When you first enter the interior using a teleporter on the back, you are greeted with a room that has 4 chairs and computers. There is also a large hologram of a planet in the middle of the room. There are two small hallways to the bridge. The seat somewhat resembles that of the Prototype X-2 but blue.

Advantages

  • Powerful Spinals.
  • Fairly flat for its size potentially helping in dodging incoming fire when facing directly away or toward.
  • Railguns do extra Hull damage in addition to Turrets.

Disadvantages

  • Expensive.
  • Vulnerable bottom.
  • Cannot defend itself from small ships all too well.
  • Slightly lower Cargo Hold than most Dreadnoughts.
  • Below average speed for a Dreadnought
  • Overall Low health for a Dreadnought.

Strategy

  • Don't use this ship as a front-line tank as its Shields will quickly get burnt down by Heavy Laser fire.
  • Some prefer this over the Apocalypse due to it having powerful Spinals, and slightly better mobility.
  • Use this for finishing off hulled Starbases.
  • Try and find an ally with a Zeus or Sagittarius as the combination will rip through Shield and Hull.

Version history

  • It received a buff to its Spinals so that it fires 3 shots instead of just 1.
  • Received a buff to its interior in .60d1 that gave it an additional second floor.
  • Received a nerf to its interior in .60h that removed its second floor and got remodeled too.
  • The exterior was recolored in .62d2
  • Buffed in .64c, 2 Railguns replaced with 2 Dual Railguns, and 1 Railgun removed.
  • .65a5 replaced its weapons with 6 Dual Medium Cannons and 3 Triple Heavy Lasers, giving it an extra Laser Turret.
  • Its Dual Medium Cannons were replaced with single barrel Medium Cannons.
  • Received another remodel in .65b3? that looks uncannily similar to an Alien Punisher (and subsequently semi-close to a Prototype X-2).
  • Replace Cannons with Railguns, and replace Triple Heavy Lasers with normal Heavy Lasers in .65B
