|— In-Game Description|
The Kingpin Battleship is an adapted version of the Altairian Paragon Battleship, sacrificing its Alien and Plasma Resistance for Resurgence, as well as void resistance.
Strategy and Setup
Like the Paragon, the Kingpin's barrage overdrive allows it to deal massive AoE damage whenever enemy ships are present in both firing arcs.
It also retains its counter pierce ability, and can resist the piercing effects of weapons to a certain extent. With Void Resistance, it can also resist weapons that deal void damage to varying extents, depending on how upgraded the Kingpin is.
Its Resurgence ability also allows it to regain health lost in PvP engagements whenever it wins a PvP battle. It also contributes to Fleet Resurgence.
The Barrage Overdrive ability can only activate if enemy ships are present in both firing arcs, which is usually really hard to do unless the Battleship gets up close and personal. The Kingpin, despite its increased health, does not possess the durability to be able to brawl with enemy ships at short range, and unless protected by more heavily armored ships such as the Bastion Cruiser, will quickly fall to any sustained onslaught.
Being a Battleship, it is vulnerable to cutters, especially upgraded ones which possess a DPS boost against them.
