Siege driver pummeling a base

The Siege Driver is a devastating projectile weapon, which deals massive damage. It was previously available in riots and was later added as a blueprint which can be found in level 27-45 VEGA cargo fleets or level 50-55 VEGA elite fleets.

Siege drivers has fires slow moving, spherical blue/white bolts of gravitic projectiles at its targets at long ranges. It serves as a replacement to Mass drivers, by being more specialized in base strikes.

It is occasionally seen equipped on destroyers attacking bases from mid to high level ranges.

Strategy and Setup Edit

Advantages: Edit

Siege drivers delivers a high amount of damage in bursts. They have extremely long range, being able to out range SICO missile turrets and keep some distance to Vector torpedo turrets. This makes the siege driver a good replace to Mass drivers since it has more firepower.

In comparison to other common weapons to use on destroyers like Impulse beam, Archer beam and Arc missile, the Siege driver has less firepower but maintains its range advantage, destroyers bombarding from that slightly extra distance are less in danger from zoning into SICO missiles turrets that inflict a massive amount of damage, a critical advantage.

Disadvantages: Edit

Siege drivers have a massive minimum range, they should not be used in fleet vs fleet combat, they cannot engage targets at close or even medium range. Siege driver's effectiveness are restricted to base combat exclusively.

Siege drivers have a very slow projectile speed and reload, this disadvantage can stand out as it takes a significant amount of time for projectiles to land on its target in base attacks - giving the turrets more time to attack the ships drawing away fire. This disadvantage can be mitigated with Iridium magnets.

Siege drivers are very heavy. In order to eliminate the highest level bases, Siege drivers III are needed, as well as destroyers with a large amount of mass.

Both the slow projectile travel time and comparatively less firepower to Impulse beam and Archer beam can make the Siege driver less preferable as it takes a longer amount of time to eliminate base modules.

TriviaEdit

  • The projectile has a very small damage radius. Its radius works similarly to the Gladius driver, it's just much smaller.
  • It has the highest mass of any projectile weapon, and the highest mass of any ship weapon.
  • It also has the narrowest firing arc, at only 1,000 m spacing between 4,000 and 5,000, making it effectively useless against fast ships or any ships that can outmaneuver the ship they are equipped on.
  • The VEGA Corporation first used this weapon on their siege fleets during the Reclamation event.
  • The Siege driver the slowest base projectile speed of any projectile weapon, and the second slowest speed in the game. The slowest is that of the Creeper torpedo, both the ship and the base variants.
