The Decimator Cutter is a fusion of Alien and Human technology, built for speed. The Decimator is capable of lightning quick assaults.
  — In-Game Description 


The Decimator Cutter is a Tier 6 hull with the ability to resist Alien Damage.

As a cutter, this ship has fair durability and superior forward speed, suitable for rushing into enemy formations.

Strategy and Setup


The Decimator Cutter has an extremely high acceleration, enabling it to reach maximum speed from rest in a fraction of a second, taking enemies by surprise. This together with stasis resistance allows the ship to make a quick recovery after being hit by stasis dealing weapons.

It is the most effective ship to use against Barrage Hives, which rely on weaponry with extremely long range. Decimator Cutters can enter their minimum range as soon as possible, denying the Hives of their damage output.

The Decimator Cutter is ranked 2nd in terms of both durability and offensive power out of the Xeno Division Hulls, making it a good overall ship.


The Decimator Cutter is not agile in close combat and is only good for closing the distance. They often rush head-on towards the enemy similar to other cutters. As a result, Decimator Cutter fleets usually suffer more repair time than the enemy does.

This ship has a narrow firing arc and is therefore countered by squadrons. It is difficult to use a Suppressor to protect them due to the massive difference in forward speed. Many Decimator Cutters use Creeper Torpedoes in PvP to lay down a minefield that damages incoming squadrons on approach.
