The Apocalypse is a Dreadnought with overwhelmingly powerful turret firepower.

   

Description

The Apocalypse is mostly used as a siege ship or a brawling ship for Dread vs Dread. However, the acceleration and overall mobility is lacking (it moves slowly up and down) which makes it vulnerable to smaller shipsIt is capable of many tasks, due to its powerful arsenal. This ship is even capable of Solo sieging a Level 1 Starbase. The Apocalypse has 6420 shield and 5950 hull points, making it a great ship for tanking in fleet combat and sieges. The Ridgebreaker has similar capabilities.

Interior

Though the Apocalypse is a large Dreadnought, its interior is quite small. The interior contains a table with 7 chairs, 4 chairs near screens (faction colorued) and the captain's seat. There is also a blue screen above captains seat. The interior could have been much bigger (due to the massive size of the ship) but the lag would have been much greater.

Advantages

  • It has high siege Turret firepower, best turret firepower damage wise.
  • Very high health. Only behind the Osiris in HP.
  • Above average turning speed.
  • Can tank for a long amount of time in a siege.
  • Great for sieges with it's three triple heavy lasers and six dual railguns which all have great turret placement.
  • Can out-damage a level 3 Starbase.
  • Can be used to carry players if you ever need to, as it has 12 seats including the pilot.

Disadvantages

  • Vulnerable bottom.
  • Very expensive.
  • It lacks small Turret firepower making it unable to fend off smaller ships.
  • No Spinals.
  • It can be overwhelmed by smaller ships such as a Razor Wing, and Vansnova.

Strategy

  • It fails at attacking anything smaller than a Battleship, as its weapons are very inaccurate and hard-hitting. Because of this always try to stay near a fleet.
  • It is very good at brawling other Dreadnoughts, taking its three triple heavy lasers and six dual railguns into account.
  • It is a good option for sieging as its powerful weaponry allow it to deal heavy damage at long range.
  • It can withstand a lot of damage from Railguns, but not very much from Heavy Lasers. It is still a good choice as a frontline tank given its impressive health pool.
  • Always siege in a fleet with anti-siege ships in it.
  • If you see an enemy ship always approach from the bottom so you can be sure that its loading won't get the best of you.
  • If a battleship or above, and the ship is running away from you and happens to dock at its base, it has a very little chance of living through it so don't give up when it starts running because your lasers will do it tons of damage.
  • If you want to siege a base by yourself make sure you attack a base from above so heavy lasers can't hit you. Then you want to turn your ship upside down and then attack when you are above the base.
  • As the Apocalypse has no spinals, this ship may be ideal for sieging Frion as you don't have to constantly fire spinals to maximize damage.
