  — Event Store 


The Zeal Battleship is a Tier 4 hull with more advanced VEGA Security 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 Zeal Battleship has less unladen mass and greater maximum mass compared to the Dread Battleship, giving it more room for equipment. Overall, it is superior to the Dread Battleship.

Equip powerful VEGA Security Ship Weapons such as the Vector Torpedo and NET Torpedo. This standard combo enables you to kite cruisers with ease and farm most NPC Targets of Tier 5 or below. Arc Missiles are best used for battleship duels.

A high-DPS build involves Aurora Rays, which have decent range and take out squadrons in a single blast.

Disadvantages

Zeal Battleships, like most battleships, are commonly overrun by upgraded frigates and cutters.

Trivia

  • The Zeal Battleship looks similar, but not completely, like a dropship (the Spirit dropship) used by the Covenant in Halo: Reach, Halo Wars, Halo: CE (A) and Halo 5: Guardians.
  • When it was first released, despite KIXEYE stating that the Zeal Battleship was faster than 290 m/s, the final speed was, in fact, 290 m/s, the same as a Dread Battleship.
  • It is the first battleship to feature a split-hull design with a central pylon connecting the two sections.
