Blitz Thrusters are a powerful thruster special developed by the Xeno Division. It was made specifically for the Decimator Cutter as what some players believe to replace its main engine. It was first available in the event Resurrection.
Strategy and Setup
The Blitz Thrusters offer a decent amount of forward speed, as much as the Fusion Thrusters. It also has a rather low ship mass, as compared to other thrusters, meaning that less weight is used up on the ship equipped to it
The Blitz Thrusters also increases the damage of Explosive and Alien weapons, further enhancing the deadliness of ships equipped with this Thruster.
It also does not debuff ship maneuverability in any way, which was the downside of many engines. This means it can move foward at high speeds without sacrificing strafe or turning speed.
The Blitz Thrusrer however, does not boost turning or strafe speed in anyway, like the Fusion Thrusters or Armored Thrusters, and thus, ships equipped with the Blitz Thrusters tend to be slow in turning as compared to those equipped with Fusion.
Plus, the increase in DPS for the Alien and Explosive weapons is somewhat negligible, considering that it only causes the weapons to deal 3% extra damage. That amount of damage compared to having increased turning speed on Fusion Thrusters thus makes the Fusion Thruster a more viable option for equipping on the ship.
The Blitz Thruster is also for the Decimator Cutter only. This drastically limits the options of the engine as only one hull can equip the engine.
- The Blitz Thruster is the first Xeno Division Thruster.
- The Blitz Thruster is very large. Its height and size topples over many deadly weapons which leads some to believe that the thruster is a replacement for the Main engine on the Decimator Cutter.
- The Blitz Thruster is the first thruster to add bonus damage.
- The Blitz Thruster is the first thruster to only give 1 speed buff and no debuff.
