The Nixesion is a powerful Fighter designed specifically for the Nyx.

   

Description

The Nixesion is a very powerful fighter that spawns only in the Nyx and Icarus. Note that, while it may have the strongest weapons and highest health of all fighters, it is also currently the slowest fighter with a top speed of 160.

Advantages

  • Very high firepower for a Fighter. (Higher than some destroyers).
  • Decent durability.
  • Has two weapon types, allowing it to be effective no matter the situation.
  • Easy to control since it moves slow enough for the pilot to react.
  • A couple of Nixesions can destroy a Level 1, 2 and even a level 3 or 4 Starbase if undefended.

Disadvantages

  • Slow for a Fighter.
  • Can be shot down easily by light turrets.
  • Can be outranged.

Strategy

  • Listen to the captain of the carrier. If you are told to focus on one ship or base, try to get every fighter to target it so as to maximize damage.
  • Ask for teammates to pilot the Nixesions.
  • Fly together in large swarms.
  • Fly at full speed to help avoid being shot down
  • Try to avoid ships like the Ampharos. Anything with a high count of light turrets or gatlings will easily rip apart Nixesions due to their slower speed (assuming the enemy pilot knows what they're doing).
  • Overpower the enemy with swarms of Nixesions.

Trivia

  • Two of these Fighters are featured on the main thumbnail for Galaxy.
  • Looks somewhat similar to the Sixfold in terms of the wings.
  • Renamed from Nyxesion to Nixesion due to a bug of using the cost command where it would show the Nixesion's price instead of the Nyx's.
