The Rancor Battleship is a beginner level, tier one Miner Rebellion hull. It is the first battleship available for the player to research.

They are popular among new level players, as they are strong hulls with lots of mass in comparison with other ships in the same tier. They are also commonly used by mid and high level players as cargo ships because of their instant repair time if fitted coorrectly.

Strategy and Setup


Rancor Battleships are an incredibly cheap but also very reliable and powerful in its level regions of combat as it can equip many powerful weapons for its tier like the Gladius Driver while still being very powerful in terms of defence.

Like all battleships, it has a range booster of +25% along with a dual sided firing arc. This Firing arc will double its damage if 2 hulls are in range of both arc making it extremely versatile for both blitzing and kiting.

Its also a very good farming hull as it can equip the Gladius Driver, or Polaron Ray which are very powerful weapons. With enough skill, it can even be a worthwhile choice in events, seen in the event Zero Hour.


However, it is the weakest battleship in the game. It will be usually decimated by many armored cruisers due to the fact no Stasis weapons can be equipped on the Battleship.

It usually has little potential in Civil War and PvP as its fleet level usually will be in range of Tier 2 Hulls which will do serious damage to the Rancor, it is also hard countered by the popular Broadsword Destroyer, Impulse Beam fleet.

Like all Tier 1 hulls, it will usually be instantly outclassed by their Tier 2 variant. This holds true mostly for the Rancor aswell as the Venom Battleship can equip Vector Torpedos and NET Torpedos making a powerful, cheap fleet config.
