Venom Battleship   Venom Battleship Builds


The Venom Battleship has extraordinary firepower. No enemy caught in its field of fire will survive for very long.
  — In-Game Description 

General

The Venom Battleship is a Tier 2 hull with standard Miner Rebellion technology.

As a battleship, this ship has bonus range and duplicate weapons for each firing arc, dealing massive damage from a safe distance.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

The Venom Battleship has high maximum mass and a 5th weapon slot, laying down devastating fire upon enemies within its range.

It has sufficient mass to use high-level NET Torpedoes to slow down enemy ships in combination with other long-range weapons, and is the first truly effective kiting battleship. A Midgard Carrier would definitely help your Venom Battleships to kite short-ranged enemies.

Disadvantages

Successful battleships often require a list of advanced technologies that are out of reach of the average Tier 2 player, including the Vector Torpedo and NET Torpedo for kiting, as well as Fusion Thrusters to become more agile in combat. Focused Optics IV-V are a must-have if you are using Energy weapons.

Refrain from having a minimum range on your battleships, otherwise frigates, cutters and squadrons may be able to exploit it once they close the distance. This can be achieved by using a single HEX Missile to deter enemies.
