The Brimstone torpedo is an explosive weapon. It was first released in the event Scorched Earth and Devastation. It is similar to a cluster missile, it fires a single slow moving torpedo at its target. When approximately 2,000 metres away from its target, it detonates releasing many smaller bombs in every direction.
The smaller bombs drift away for roughly 2,500 metres before explodes. The bombs will explode when they hit enemies.
Strategy and Setup
Strategies with this weapon in PvP are very limited due to the fact it has doesn't effectively deliver damage to its intended target like Creeper torpedoes. This makes them rather unpopular weapons amongst all players regardless of their level, much to their dismay and disappointment.
Brimstone torpedo has higher range than most weapons, it can be a particular significant advantage on battleships in battleship vs battleship fights.
The cluster bombs that spread out can hit targets even further away from its 5000 metres range.
Since the Brimstone torpedo rarely ever connects to its target, it heavily relies on the cluster bombs to inflict damage. The cluster bombs however are released in every direction and most of them do not actually connect to their targets. This leads to a very diluted amount of damage actually being delivered to its target.
They are not effective at destroying squadrons, rendering your ships vulnerable to carriers.
- The Brimstone Torpedo's description was changed when people realise it doesn't explode at 5,000m. This was to prevent any confusion.
- The Brimstone Torpedo was the second explosive weapon to have a proximity fuse, the first being the Creeper Torpedo.
