Summary

The Penetrator Missile is a Missile unlocked for the Missile Launcher/Multi Missile Launcher after the player researches Penetrator Missiles in the Laboratory. The Penetrator Missile deals massive amounts of Direct Hull Damage, allowing it to inflict Ship HP damage without having to destroy the targeted room first. Note: Armor affects the amount of Direct Hull Damage penetrators deal, so it is still important to have the missiles target rooms with low armor.

Like all Missiles, the Penetrator Missile bypasses shields and can be dodged by ships that have a powered Engine onboard. The Penetrator Missile can be upgraded by continuing to research Penetrator in the Laboratory.

When To Use

The Penetrator Missile aims to achieve the ultimate win condition (Reduce enemy hull to 0) as quickly as possible. Here are some general tips for success when running Penetrators. Crew manning the Missile rooms should have a high weapon stat, plenty of defender Crew should be positioned to kill enemy boarders and the ship using the combo must have the ability to withstand lots of damage from the enemy.

AI

The AI equip command for the Penetrator Missile is relatively straightforward. Once the below AI equip command is in the Missile Launcher/Multi Missile Launcher, it will automatically equip the Penetrator Missile during combat.

None -> Set Highest Hull Damage

Trivia

  • The Penetrator Missile only strategy has obtained a rather notorious reputation for being one that bypasses the entire concept of repair AI as there is nothing for crew to repair when against a "pen-spammer".
