Destroyers are the 1st dedicated combat Ship the player will research. Destroyers are unlocked after researching the technology Efficient Shielding. This class receives a 20% discount on Weapons Modules, letting you equip more weapons per Command Point 1019commandPoints than any other class in the game.

The Destroyer is the main Ship of the fleet for its low cost and high damage output status. Small groups of these warships are often enough to wipe out the first player a fleet run into, sometimes even being used en masse in late game. With its bonus to weapon Tonnage 1009weightSmall, the destroyer makes a significantly better attack ship than the Corvette at the same 1019commandPoints cost.


Destroyer packs are extremely useful against small groups of larger ships, especially Dreadnoughts. Ships only engage one target at a time. This means that only a fraction of a Destroyer pack will be targeted by the enemy if a fleet outnumbers them. A player will often be able to beat a small number of Dreadnoughts with a large group of Destroyers, losing only a handful of ships. Outnumbering an opponent with Destroyers will also counter Missile spam, as all Missiles launched by an enemy craft will only target one of a fleet's ships, leaving others intact. (Every Missile fired at a Destroyer, beyond what it took to kill it, is a wasted shot)

Although it can be tempting to fill Destroyers with nothing but weapons, late-game Beams and Kinetics can take out a swath of unarmored craft within the 1st few seconds of an engagement. Because of this, a light coating of Armor is necessary for survival.
