The Wave Driver is a Projectile weapon that has increased shield bypass.

It fires a tiny light blue slug at its target, resulting in a minimal impact graphic.

Strategy and Setup


Wave Drivers have decent projectile speed and increased shield bypass. They can consistently drain the health of enemy ships through their shields, especially when enhanced with Phased Magnets.

Wave Drivers barely outrange Gladius Drivers and Vector Torpedoes, allowing them to potentially deal damage without getting hit in return.


Wave Drivers can be easily dodged at maximum range even with Iridium Magnets, just like most other Projectile weapons. They are only accurate when equipped on destroyers, which can predict enemy movements.

Wave Drivers have poor firepower compared to the Gladius Driver and are directly replaced by the Boosted Gladius Driver, which also has increased shield bypass.


  • The Wave Driver's projectiles are very small, presumably to pass through enemy shields.
  • There was a bug that caused the Wave Driver to detonate at that target's location but deal no damage.
