Blitz Thrusters are powerful thrusters designed for the Decimator Cutter. In addition to a speed boost, this thruster also enhances the ship's Alien and Explosive Damage. It can only be equipped on the Decimator, Vindicator and Altairian Cutters.
Strategy and Setup
The Blitz Thrusters offer the same forward speed increase as Fusion Thrusters but only occupy half the mass. This makes them a very efficient thruster that leaves more space for weapons and armor on your cutters.
Blitz Thrusters grant a tiny bonus to Alien and Explosive Damage dealt, enabling your cutters to deal even more damage and wipe out enemy targets faster.
Blitz Thrusters lack the turning speed increase of Fusion Thrusters, leaving your cutters vulnerable to cruisers and Pegasi which can easily outmaneuver you and stay inside of your blind spot. The lack of strafe penalty is negligible considering that cutters do not have much strafe speed to start with.
Most of the time, Xeno Armored Thruster is a better choice because it also increases turning speed and grants much less XP, although it weighs considerably more.
- 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 affect one speed stat.
