Strategy and Setup
|“||The Machete Destroyer, though without shield, is a powerful ship full of guns and armor.||”|
The Machete Destroyer has extra armor slots to offset the lack of shields. Skirmish Armor is recommended for fleet combat, while Deflector Armor and Projectile Resistors are the best choice for base sniping.
The Machete Destroyer does not have any shields until Mk III. Considering that shields have more shield energy than armor with health, this actually makes the Machete Destroyer less durable than the Damocles Destroyer. Moreover, this forces the Machete Destroyer to sustain more damage in each battle, being unable to benefit from shield regeneration out of combat.
Its limited weaponry takes longer to eliminate enemy ships and modules, giving more time for the enemy to fire back at you which results in more repair time.
