General[edit | edit source]

The Nighthawk Drone is an extremely powerful Blight squadron with superior health, speed and range. It can only be equipped on Umbra Hulls, specifically the Behemoth Dreadnought or Gargoyle Carrier.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Nighthawk Drones have long range, as well as superior DPS, similar to the Fury Drone. Since it deals Blight damage, Altairian Hulls are vulnerable to the full extent of its damage.

They are also highly mass efficient, on par with the Fury Drone and Nightingale Drone.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

While Nighthawk Drones are on par with the Fury Drone and Nightingale Drone, having the best damage output on paper, Pharmakon Hulls have innate resistance to Blight Damage, effectively cutting their damage by half. They are best used against Altairian Hulls which lack Blight resistance compared to the other damage types.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Nighthawk Drones have the same exact stats as the Fury or Nightingale Drones, except they deal Blight damage instead.
  • Nighthawk Drones round off the RPS cycle, as this makes Blight the last damage type to receive a squadron that deals its damage.
