The Kraken is a Torpedo-based Dreadnought, and it's the only ship in the game with a Huge Torpedo.

   

Description

The Kraken is only obtainable by completing the quest DepthBreaker. It is mostly tan in color with various neon parts. The ship's Torpedo is so large that it juts prominently out from the front launching bay.

Interior

The Kraken has no interior, just a cockpit with a seat for the user.

Advantages

  • It can cause massive hull damage and out-range Starbases with it's Huge Torpedo.
  • Great for sieges due to it's powerful Spinals.
  • Decent mobility and speed.
  • Has access to an arsenal of 6 Medium Turrets.
  • Very high combined health and small size for a Dreadnought makes it potentially harder to destroy with heavy weapons.
  • Great at kill stealing with it's Torpedo.

Disadvantages

  • Can be hard to get in vulture-infested servers, especially when they have E Classes.
  • Needs good Spinal aiming skills to prove effective.
  • Without its Spinals, the Kraken, much like the Tempest, can be easy prey for other Dreadnoughts.
  • Once lost, its gone FOREVER.
  • Very hard to get as you need to kill the Kodiak and get 4 Kodiak Armor Plates and a Kodiak Activator.

Version History

  • Added in .65a3.

Strategy

  • The Kraken is not a good PVP ship due to it lacking high Turret firepower. Refrain from solo PVP and stick with a group of ships.
  • The Kraken's Torpedo has long range, longer than most Starbase Turrets, which make it a great ship for far-range sieging.
  • Run in and easily kill steals with your 1k damage Huge Torpedo, but take care when doing so.
  • Consider the fact that the Kraken technically has one life, so use it sparingly unless you are a god.
  • If you get hulled, run as fast as you can.
  • Do yourself a favour and try not to fight small ships that can pick at your health.

Trivia

  • The model is identical to the Kodiak's.
  • The only ship in the game with a Huge Torpedo.
  • It's the smallest Dreadnought in the game, having the same size as Battlecruisers, or even some large Cruisers.
  • Due to duplication glitches (and other info the editor isn’t aware of), the two quests to obtain the Kraken have been disabled in all servers.
  • The model of this ship is based off of the Kraken ship from Star Conflict.
