|“||The Covenant Cruiser is a ship designed without regard for any kind of mercy. It's a brutal machine, and the very last thing you see.||”|
|— In-Game Description|
The Covenant Cruiser is a Tier 5 hull with extra offensive power in the form of weapon slots and mass reductions.
As a cruiser, this ship has great defensive capability and is designed to soak up damage.
Strategy and Setup
Covenant Cruisers are extremely lethal in combat with many weapon slots. Infernal Gatling Rays are a common Infernal weapon because of their reliability and high damage. Manifold Missiles are a cheap alternative and perform best in base hits. Reverb Rays are incredibly efficient but you might end up not fully utilizing the available mass on this ship.
Despite being a Demon Corps hull, Covenant Cruisers are quite durable because even with additional armor slots, people rarely max out the armor on cruisers due to the high repair time. 3 armor slots filled with Zynthium IV-V are sufficient to make this ship just as durable as a Corinthian Cruiser.
For base rushes, Heretic Cruisers last much longer thanks to their Skirmish Armor which grants them a massive health pool as well as damage resistance. Covenant Cruisers can still be used as damage dealers, but be sure to use both cruisers: the Heretics can tank the damage, giving the Covenants extra time to demolish the enemy's Bridge.
