Advantages

  • High Spinal firepower capable of easy damage.
  • Extremely high health, and the 4th highest in the class.
  • Powerful siege Turrets.
  • Overall high damage output, especially towards Hull.
  • Can out-range bases with its Heavy Railgun.
  • Largest Cargo Hold of all Dreadnoughts.
  • Great interior.

Disadvantages

  • Incapable of fighting small ships.
  • Vulnerable bottom.
  • Very sluggish, slower and less maneuverable than other Dreadnoughts and Carriers.
  • Third most expensive Dreadnought in-game, not including limited ships.
  • Weak Shield damage.
  • Mediocre Shield health for a Dreadnought.

Strategy

  • Use it as the main tank in sieges for its massive pool of Hull.
  • Be careful not to waste the Spinals, as nearly half of the damage it does comes from its Spinals.
  • Be sure to bring a Sagittarius so that your Cannons and Railguns can do the most hull damage.
  • If alone, keep at a distance of 6.6k-6.7K to pick off the base using Spinals, and retreat when you see defenders incoming.
  • Due to its reliance on kinetic weaponry, this ship is best used when a foe's Shields have been depleted. It may not be the best idea to be the one soaking up all the initial damage in a siege, as you will want as much health as possible last long enough to destroy the Starbase's Hull.
  • A Combination of a Sagittarius and Ridgebreaker can be a big threat, as they will dish out damage fast.

Version History

  • At one point most of its exterior detail was removed leaving some simple decorations in its place, and its living quarters were completely removed.
  • Received a massive buff in .61e4 that boosted Cargo Hold, health, and ship cost.
  • Remodeled in .61h1.
  • Received a Heavy Railgun in .65b.
  • Explosion range increased from 10 to 175 in .65b.
  • Remodeled in .65b.

Trivia

  • The original model had Torpedoes, which were removed prior to addition.
  • The current model looks like the first Ridgebreaker model.
