Strategy and Setup


Xeno Shatter Drivers have even better mass efficiency than Heavy Shatter Drivers. They have increased projectile speed which frees up a special slot and reduces the mass needed to use this weapon effectively. Some people equip Xeno Siege Casing with this weapon on destroyers for extra damage against modules.

Xeno Shatter Drivers also benefit from faster secondary projectiles, allowing the shatter to more reliably hit ships that are further away from the main target.


Xeno Shatter Drivers cannot be accelerated, capping their maximum speed at around 3 km/s and making them easier to dodge than Heavy Shatter Drivers equipped with Iridium Magnets V.

While they have the highest listed DPS out of all Xeno Division Ship Weapons, Xeno Shatter Drivers also weigh significantly more and are less mass-efficient compared to them. They are weak to rush attacks similar to the regular Shatter Driver.


  • The Xeno Shatter Driver's primary projectile does 2/3rds of the base DPS, while each secondary projectile does 10%.
  • The Xeno Shatter Driver fails to hit targets at the very edge of maximum range with its primary shot, effectively only doing 50% DPS instead of 66.7%.
  • This is the first weapon with different projectile speeds based on level.
