The Nighthawk is a fast but weak Fighter.
The Nighthawk is a fighter similar to the Xenophile with more hull (150, to be precise), making it the second fastest Fighter in the game (tied with the Xenophile). It only spawns in the Hevnetier.
- Fast and maneuverable.
- Small ship, making it quite difficult to destroy.
- Can assist in wearing down enemy shields.
- Deadly in swarms.
- Spinals do little damage.
- Low Health.
- Only effective against shields.
- Work with other Fighters to take down larger ships.
- Use with other Fighters to distract a Starbase's lasers in a siege.
- Use its speed to scout a Starbase. You can jump out of the ship above the Starbase and stand inside and give information about ships and Starbase condition.
- Avoid ships with high maneuverability or lots of small turrets. Ships like the Ampharos and most Cruisers will easily take fighters down, especially at close range.
- Because of how rare it is to see these ships in Galaxy, many players are surprised to know it still exists. It is only known to spawn inside the Hevnetier, which itself is rarely used.
- Used to spawn in Starbases until they started to only spawn Furies.
