The Frenzied HEX Missile is an explosive weapon that was available in the Alien Mobilization event. It is a direct upgrade over the HEX missile. Having a greater firepower, much faster projectile speed, reduced mass, and a larger explosive radius.
Strategy and setup Edit
The Frenzied HEX missile is similar in function to the original HEX missile, but with much faster bolts and larger explosive radius. This weapon is much more likely to impact targets with the faster projectile speed, and can reach an 880m explosion radius with antimatter warheads V, allowing these weapons to shred large groups of ships. The weapon is also much lighter then its original variant, and has a decent damage to mass ratio.
The weapon is not however without its weaknesses. Even with a boosted projectile speed, its volleys can still be dodged fairly easily. It also lacks the homing ability of the Hydra missile and Vector torpedo, making it more difficult to attack targets at range. In addition, it cannot match the raw firepower of more recently released explosive weapons like the Manifold missile.
It's also worth noting these weapons are only available during the Alien Mobilization, which renders lower level players unable to get them due to the power of hive fleets. High level players have little to no use for this weapon as it is outclassed by better weapons in almost every possible way.
To add insult to injury, they are limited in number. Unlike blueprints, players cannot equip them limitless on their ships, the number they can equip depends on the amount of Frenzied HEX missile items they have.They are also incredibly hard to get as the Hive fleets are extremely hard on higher levels and still do massive damage on lower level fleets with the wrong setup or strategy. Unlike credits, they can be re-used but require a refit time.
- The Frenzied HEX missile appears identical to the HEX missile III, IV, and V.
- Frenzied HEX missile III can be considered as HEX missile VI.
