Xeno Armored Thrusters are an advanced and upgraded Armored Thrusters developed by the Xeno Division. Like Armored thrusters it is slightly faster than Fusion Thrusters but turns slower, to compensate it gives tons of armor aswell.
It is considered a must have for all Xeno Division Hulls due to how speed and armor are extremely important in VEGA Conflict.
Strategy and Setup
Xeno Armored Thrusters main advantage is its boosted speed, just like Armored Thrusters. It has an extra 10 m/s forward speed compared to Fusion Thrusters which means it will outrun all Miner, VEGA, VSec, and ISC Hulls or any hull with Fusion III equipped, thus its incredibly useful.
To add to this, it also has a massive bonus in armor while still having less added weight than Fusion Thrusters III, this armor on level III is almost the same as Talonite Armor III making it even better for PvP or PvE.
Xeno Armored Thrusters don't have many disadvantages. Though, it does have 1.0 deg slower turning speed than Fusion Thrusters. This isn't much but kiting and running are less effective due to this slower turn.
It also adds repair time, but this isn't a big disadvantage due to the massive repair time of Xeno Division Hulls. Its main disadvantage is that it can only be equipped on Xeno Division Hulls, limiting its use.
It is a MUST have on Xeno Division Hulls and A.X.I.S. Hulls, equip level III on every Xeno Hull you can. If you have hulls without it always refit it so it does because of its massive buffs over Fusion Thrusters.
Since it isn't heavy, it is easy to put into any build. Don't max out anything on a Xeno/AXIS hull without Xeno Armored Thrusters III equipped first. It makes more sense than Fusion Thrusters III because it is actually lighter.
- The Winner for killing the most Geir's Fortresses in the Eradication Event received a Mk Elite Suppressor armed with Xeno Seeker Missiles as well as the new Xeno Armored Thrusters, before the tech was even introduced into the game as a blueprint.
- Xeno Armored Thrusters are the best Xeno Thruster in the game.
- The only difference between Armored Thrusters and this is its increased armor.
