Cruisers are the next step up from the Fighter and Heavy Fighter. They are also capable of using the medium sized turrets and launchers and can fit more modules then the heavy fighter. Cruisers also have more armor and greater shield capacity allowing them to handle heavy punishment. With their use of medium sized turrets they have a harder time tracking smaller ships like the fighter. Modules that improve tracking are needed to accurately target fighters.
The cruiser is a much larger and less agile starship then the heavy fighter. Cruisers are well suited to battle against other larger ships of its kind. Cruisers require more module management and are vulnerable to multiple fighter engagements. Modules such as smart bombs attached to the Cruiser can fend off a fighter attack. It's important that the cruiser is flown with additional fighter and heavy fighter support to defend itself from a group of fighters.
Cruisers that are available:
When you purchase a cruiser blueprint in our website you are not purchasing just a ship. Ships in Space Misfits are destructible. When buying the blueprint you are buying the information you need to build a cruiser. As a builder in Space Misfits you have the ability to not only build ships for yourself but also supply ships for the entire market. This gives the blueprint owner the ability to earn BITS building ships in the Forge and selling on the market. Players will be able to buy built ships on the open in-game market.
Another way blueprint owners can earn BITS is by making copies of their blueprint and selling these copies on the open market. This provides players who don't own a blueprint a chance to build ships as well. Blueprint copies require longer build times and consume more materials then original blueprints purchased in our store.
Currently we are in alpha and balancing the gameplay. More detailed information about specs on all cruisers will be released in the future.
Cruiser blueprints are extremely limited, purchase a cruiser blueprint before we sell out! Purchase here.
