Learn the true meaning of speed with the Osprey Frigate, a versatile new Rebel Hull.
  — Event Store 

The Osprey Frigate is an mid level, tier three Miner Rebellion hull. It was available in the event Countermeasures.

Osprey frigates are incredibly rare ships to be seen. The event that had rewarded the blueprint was difficult and only a handful of players had obtained the blueprint and even less had built any.

Strategy and Setup

Osprey frigates is a rare, heavy frigate with unique traits and setup.


Osprey frigates have three utility slots, that allows for engine equipment and two weapon boosters such as a combination of phased projectiles and iridium magnets.

Osprey frigates feature rather significant room for equipment, allowing for a large variety of setups.

It also has a high amount of default health for greater robustness in combat and a slightly higher speed than all other frigates with its unique +10% thruster speed.


Osprey frigates key weakness is that it has rather low firepower despite having three utility slots.

Although featuring that many utility slots may seem like an advantage for hit and run tactics, upgrading any frigate to MK IV can yield the same advantage and VSec version of the frigate has more mass.

In addition to low firepower, Osprey frigates may find they must engage in medium range combat at least as most other ship hulls often have equal or slightly less range on cruisers, battleships and destroyed.

Cutters are faster than Osprey frigates and will overpower them with sheer damage output.

Osprey frigates cannot be upgraded with the crafting system.

Osprey frigates blueprints as of now cannot be obtained. Overall, this ship is a something special to have but overall not effective in combat.

Recommended Builds:

Common ideal weapons on Osprey frigates for medium range combat would be Aurora ray, Gatling ray, Thermal beams, Hydra missiles and Impulse beams. Take advantage of the utility slots to equip focused optics and ion modulator.

For hit and run combat, Gladius drivers and Vector torpedoes are good options. Use Anti-matter warheads.


  • The design of the Osprey frigate somewhat resembles the style of the Genesis Cruiser, although it is superior to the Genesis cruiser in every way and is nothing similar to it other than the appearance.
  • The Osprey frigate is the first ship in the game that has three utility slots.
  • Like most frigates, the Osprey is named after a species of bird. The Osprey is a type of Raptor and is unusual for being a single species that can be found nearly anywhere in the world.
  • It took 18 months for the Osprey to be rereleased in another event.
