General

The Mass Driver is a further upgrade from the Gauss Driver, sporting even greater range and damage.

It fires a massive white shell at its target, leaving behind a long blue trail.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Mass Drivers have extremely long range, allowing ships equipped with this weapon to kite many ships and snipe enemy bases from afar.

Its damage output allows ships to quickly eliminate any targets that happen to get hit, if you don't mind the poor mass efficiency.

Disadvantages

The Mass Driver echoes the downfalls of the Rail Driver and Gauss Driver, with larger minimum range and the same slow projectile speed. Even with Iridium Magnets V, enemy ships can still dodge its shells rather easily.
