The Boosted Gladius driver is a ship projectile weapon. It is exactly similar to the standard Gladius driver with the same mass and firepower, projectile speed and such except it has an innate +25% shield bypass, where a portion of the damage dealt to its target is applied directly to the armor, ignoring shields partially.
They were first available in Alien Mobilization series of events and are now available in Planet Strike. No blueprints of them can be obtained, equip-able variants of it can be obtained, they are limited in number.
Strategy and Setup
Boosted Gladius drivers are a combination of Wave driver and the standard Gladius driver, possessing shield bypass attributes as well as higher projectile speed and proximity detonation. This makes it a overall upgrade to the Gladius driver.
It also keeps the similar weight as the normal Gladius Driver meaning the added shield bypass can be considered a very low to nothing mass upgrade.
They are limited in number. Unlike blueprints, the amount you can equip is limited to how many of the Boosted Gladius Driver items you have making it incredibly hard to farm to use effectively as most ways you get this are wiped out.
Just like the Gladius driver the Boosted Gladius driver also has a very low DPS and a horrible weight to damage ratio making it very weak against today's armored hulls. They are easily replaced by other weapons such as the Vector torpedo which is better overall in every way possible.
- The Boosted Gladius driver is the first Alien Mobilization prize to add a shield bypass
