GeneralEdit

The Rancor Battleship is a miner rebellion hull. It is the first battleship available for research to players.

They are popular amongst beginner level players, it is a strong warship with lots of mass in comparison with other ships in its tier.

Strategy and SetupEdit

Battleships cannot fire directly in front or behind them. They can only fire to their flanks, if there are enemy ships on both flanks of the battleship, it will fire from both sides simultaneously, doubling the damage output.

Battleships are relatively cumbersome with a low rotation speed. Agile ships such as frigate can sometimes enter blind spot regions of the battleship that the battleship cannot fire on and attack with impunity.

Advantages: Edit

Normally, Rancor Battleships are used to fight in level 20-30 ranges. They're very common in fleet vs. fleet battles and are frequently used in base attacks.

They have a unique AI, in that when left on auto-pilot, they flank enemy ships, potentially dodging projectiles and explosive missiles while firing.

Many players take advantage of battleship's AI to create auto fleets that can destroy low level VEGA fleets without requiring the player to attend the battle.

They are significantly stronger than Genesis cruisers and Harrier frigates because of their mass, they have greater firepower, range and armour.

Rancor battleships have the shortest build time.

Disadvantages: Edit

Rancor battleships are strong in the beginner levels but are outmatched when they face stronger tier 2 ships such as Exodus cruisers and Venom battleships.

Recommended Builds: Edit

Fleet vs. Fleet: Common effective weapons are Disruptor rays, Thermal rays, Pulse rays with focused optics. Energy weapons tend to have low range, do not use these weapons if you cannot boost the range on the energy weapons significantly or you may find your battleship out ranged and outpaced by faster frigates or cruisers with longer range weapons.

Explosive weapons such as HEX missiles, Scatter missiles and Hydra missiles are also solid options, they have decent range and firepower.

Avoid using projectile weapons unless you intend to fight VEGA fleets. Projectile weapons are easy to dodge and have a large blind spot region. Projectile weapons do have significant range and can out range other Rancor battleships in combat.

VEGA hunting: There are many low level auto fleets that work to a great effect on youtube. A common one is depicted in the gallery below.

Rotation thrusters I-II can be useful in medium range combat.

Shockwave shield III or Spectral shield IV is decent shielding for a Rancor battleship considering its mass. Use the remaining space fitting armour.

TriviaEdit

  • Rancor Battleships are the weakest battleships in the game.
  • Rancor Battleships have the least cargo capacity and health of any battleship in the game.
  • You receive a free Rancor Battleship on your 5th day playing.
  • The Rancor has the potential to take more damage than a Genesis Cruiser due to its large maximum tonnage.
  • Rancor battleships were able to defeat level 35 VEGA cargo fleets years ago on automatic piloting with smart and special configurations.
