Mass Driver

Description and UsageEdit

The final weapon to be researched, the Mass Driver is a reliable long-range projectile weapon that has stood the test of time. It has a very high DPS and range (almost as much dps as the Siege Driver III) at the cost of a huge "blindspot". The Siege Driver is the only other weapon with 5,000m range.

Mass Drivers are commonly equipped on Talon and Nighthawk Frigates with Iridium Magnets to destroy slower and larger warships. The Frigate's nimble movements can dodge most ballistics at long range and avoids needing to travel close and personal to enemy ships by firing at long ranges. 

Mass Drivers are also used by battleships to attack bases, albeit, experienced players don't use Iridium Magnets to enhance their projectile speed as it yields no benefit. Instead, they use Phased Projectiles to punch right through the shields and destroy the module faster. It is also used by Broadsword or Trident Destroyers to snipe from long distances, equipped with Phased Projectiles to bypass the shields and increase the damage sustained by the module the destroyer is attacking.

Both Gladius Drivers and Mass Drivers are commonly used to destroy level 40 VEGA Cargo Fleets. They are effective against all slower ships including Vega Warships, but they are not as effective against VEGA Elite fleets. 

The Gladius Driver is superior to the Mass Driver in every way, at the cost of 250M less maximum range and Gladius Driver III having slightly less DPS than Mass Driver V.


  • Destroyers equipped with mass drivers outrange Plasma Missile Turret, which is a very common base defense turret.
  • Each slug or shell inflicts damage equivalent to approximately five times it's dps specification. For example, three Mass Driver II total 45 dps and hence each salvo delivers 115 damage, using six Nighthawks]], it's a total of 695 damage. This advantage makes the mass driver excellent for hit and runs. 
  • Mass driver Talon Frigates can defeat level 35 VEGA cargo fleets, though Rancor Battleships are more commonly used. 
  • A common configuration for a Mass Driver Nighthawk Frigate is MD II x3, Rear Thrusters IV, Iridium Magnets III, Shockwave Shield IV and Zynthium I.
