General

The Gauss Driver is a direct upgrade from the Rail Driver with more range and damage.

It fires a bluish projectile which travels slowly, similar to the Rail Driver.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Gauss Drivers have even more range than the Rail Driver, further enhancing the kiting and sniping capability of your ships.

They also deal considerably more damage, making each strike count.

Disadvantages

Much like the Rail Driver, ships equipped with Gauss Drivers have a hard time hitting enemy ships. Iridium Magnets are highly recommended to improve the weapon's accuracy.

Gauss Drivers are also easily replaced by Mass Drivers, which have better overall stats.

Trivia

  • The Gauss Driver was once called the Gauss Gun.
