|"Captain, next time they launch those heavy missiles, harden your shield! They hurt!"|
Be prepared to make the quick decision to fight or flight in the face of this technological terror. Nezerian Dreadnoughts have massive stats along with high damaging weapons. Not to be taken on alone (unless you are truly prepared) as it is very difficult to kill these ships due to their 1,000,000 shield regen. It is located in main Sarkinon normally attacking the insects that inhabit the area.
They shoot multiple volleys of Cruise Missiles and Hunter-killer Launcher at the player they are targeting. They use their triple beamer to shoot as a long range weapon and fire their plasma gun at any foe foolish enough to come close to it.
Nowadays, with elite tech, experienced players ares able to kill a Dreadnought (DN) alone, close to a safe zone or not. In most cases, these players use sticky bombs (on Medic C2 or Retro ships) or acid blaster (with high Rate of Fire arts).
For other players, make a team!
- Tip 1 : About shield regen debuff
Do not forget that a DN has a high shield regen (1 million per second). So using a shield regen debuff weapon is necessary, or the shield will be full in one or two seconds. You should have 2 players shooting shield regen debuff weapons, in case the debuffer dies and the effect wears off.
- Tip 2 : About damaging
The Dreadnought shield is easy to take down with any weapon, but a DN has high armor. That means some weapons will be useless against it : Particle Gun, Gatling Gun, and other weapons that shoot large amounts of low damaging shots. You can use an armor debuffing weapon to get past this, like C-4 or Razor. Sticky Bombs are very strong for damaging, and also long range DoT weapons (Acid Blaster, Moth Queen Spit Gland.) Using a short range DoT weapon (Plasma Gun, etc.) is tricky. Pay attention to the DN's resists too. Infested Missiles is useful to debuff it.
- Tip 3 : About a team
- Clean or tank the missiles (Energy Nova)
- Shield regen debuffing
- Armor debuffing (if needed)
- Healing players (if needed)
- And of course, Damage!
- Tip 4 : Others
- Energy Orb is a good distraction to avoid DN missiles.
- Algae Nova Gland, Nuke launcher can clean missiles, but can clean your damage weapons too : HK, Moth Spit Gland...
- 75% Energy and Kinetic resist
- 1000 armor
- Shield regen debuff : Moth Zero Gland or X27-S Smart Gun or Hunter-killer Launcher or any other weapon with shield regen debuff elite tech
- Damage (DoT) : Acid Blaster or Moth Queen Spit Gland
- Direct damage : Sticky Bombs or Razor
