General

The Infernal Wave Driver is a heavily-modified Wave Driver with a massive buff to damage but suffers a reduction in range. It can only be equipped on Demon Corps Hulls.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Infernal Wave Drivers deal massive amounts of damage, this combined with slow fire rate means that ships equipped with this weapon often two-hit kill their targets.

Compared to the regular version, Infernal Wave Drivers still have a long range that matches that of the Vector Torpedo, enabling them to excel in battleship fights or destroy entire fleets from afar when used on destroyers.

Disadvantages

Infernal Wave Drivers are still prone to missing their targets without the use of Iridium Arrays or similar specials. This is especially evident in battleship fights as they often fly perpendicular to the projectiles, causing them to miss.

Infernal Wave Drivers have a large minimum range that prevents them from shooting at nearby enemies. On cruisers, Reinforced Rails can effectively mitigate this issue by reducing said minimum range.

This weapon has the longest build time out of all Infernal weapons; it may not be worth clogging up your Ship Factory for weeks just for a single ship.

Trivia

  • The Infernal Wave Driver appears identical to Wave Driver I-III.
  • The Infernal Wave Driver has the longest build time out of all ship weapons.
  • It was considered as the most overpowered weapon in the game prior to the introduction of the Xeno Division, which makes this weapon seem puny in comparison.
