The Viper is a highly maneuverable Frigate.
The Viper is the fastest Frigate in the game. This ship is good for distracting Starbase Turrets.
- Extremely high mobility, highest in the game if you don't consider admin ships or the Coal Wasp.
- High shield firepower for a Frigate.
- One of the best choices for a distraction while sieging, and can be used to change the tide of war.
- Great choice as a beginner ship.
- Relatively high cost.
- No Turrets.
- Low hull and shields.
- Weak against hull.
- It is very good for attacking Battleships and Dreadnoughts from below and dodging all return fire.
- It can be used to distract enemy base turrets from other siege ships by going just inside the range of base heavy lasers. The base will rarely land a hit if the Viper is kept at top speed (330).
- It is an excellent choice whenever speed and small size are key.
- Great at attacking siege ships when defending your base.
- If you go to the height limit of the map and warp to an enemy base, you can give some support fire to a siege.
- A good choice for scouting bases before an attack by outrunning base Turrets.
- It is a replica of the Viper Mark III from "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.
- It is a popular ship for newer players.
- Rcouret's favorite ship
