An Obelisk Carrier with deployed Swarmers

Obelisk Swarmers are a type of Hangar Pet for characters of any faction.

Ship-locked Rare Obelisk Swarmers can only be obtained from the standard equipment of an Obelisk Carrier or its Advanced variant, and ship-locked Very Rare (Advanced) Obelisk Swarmers are obtained from the mission “Sphere of Influence”. Both of these variants are exclusive to these vessels:

Universal Rare, Very Rare and Ultra Rare (Elite) Obelisk Swarmers can be purchased from a Fleet Spire with Spire Research Facilities upgraded to Tier I, II and III respectively, and can be equipped on any vessel capable of launching hangar pets.

Slotted hangar pets will add a launch ability: Launch Obelisk Swarmers icon (Federation).png Launch Obelisk Swarmers.

Obelisk swarmers are ancient craft, constructed and used by the Solanae as defensive armaments. They are unmanned drones that quickly close with their targets, harassing them with powerful Antiproton beam attacks and Transphasic torpedoes in close-quarters combat.

Prior to Season Eight: The Sphere, Rare and Very Rare (Advanced) Obelisk Swarmers could only be obtained from an Obelisk Carrier or the Featured episode "Sphere of Influence" respectively. These Obelisk Swarmers are ship-locked, and are exclusive to any Obelisk Carrier. With the Season 8 update and the addition of the Fleet Spire Fleet Holding, unlocked "Universal" versions of these pets became available for use. All variants are still available in-game.

Two wings of standard-issue, Obelisk ship-locked (rare) Obelisk Swarmers come pre-loaded as part of the standard equipment of the following vessels:

Special weapons[]

Focused Antiproton Arrays[]

All variants of Obelisk Swarmers come equipped with unique Focused Antiproton Arrays. They appear virtually identical to regular Antiproton beam arrays. No player facing stats exist for this directed energy weapon.

Antiproton Defense Array[]

All variants of Obelisk Swarmers come equipped with an unique Antiproton Defense Array. This attack will fire an attack with enhanced accuracy at the nearest foe to itself that deals comparable damage to a normal Antiproton Beam attack.[1]

For higher quality variants of this pet, the ability rank is greater and provides the following bonuses:

  • A Standard Antiproton Defense Array will fire every 6 seconds
  • An Advanced Antiproton Defense Array will fire every 4 seconds
  • An Elite Antiproton Defense Array fires every 2 seconds

Playable version[]

An Obelisk swarmer.

No playable version of the Obelisk Swarmer currently exists in-game.

Modifiers[]

Hangar pet performance may be affected by various factors (unless stated otherwise), all listed below.

  • Innate
    • All Hangar pets are immune to warp core breaches and have a unique version of the Strategist specialization ability "Layered Defense", known as "Layered Defenses III", which makes them immune to a single torpedo hit every 30 seconds.
    • Starships with Hangar Bays by default can use Carrier commands, a set of four abilities that issue orders to your Hangar pets.
  • Subsystem
    • Auxiliary Power level will determine the recharge rate before a Hangar pet can be launched again; if Auxiliary subsystem is knocked offline, the Hangar will not operate.
  • Skill Tree
    • Skill Nodes
    • Unlocks
      • Adm eng fed.png 5 points in Engineering track: Hangar Health: Hangar pets have an additional 10% Maximum Hull Capacity.
      • Adm tac fed.png 5 points in Tactical track: Hangar Weaponry: Hangar pets deal an additional 10% Damage from all sources.
  • Starship Mastery (Carriers, Flight Deck Carriers, Flight Deck Raptors)
    • Mastery passive quick deployment tac fed.png Quick Deployment: 20% recharge time reduction to launching Carrier pet crafts; +50% Rank Up XP for all Hangar Pets.
  • Duty Officers
    • Flight Deck Officer: Reduces the time to recharge Hangar Bay abilities after use.
    • Flight Deck Officer: Increases the accuracy of any carrier pet launched from your Hangar bays while they are in Intercept mode.
    • Flight Deck Officer: Increases the damage of any carrier pet launched from your Hangar bays while they are in Escort mode.

Notes[]

  • Descriptions for these pets may state that some variants of the Obelisk Swarmers come equipped with Antiproton turrets, but this is not the case and can be considered a typo.
  • With the December 5, 2013 patch, the following fix was made for these pets:
    • Fixed a description error on Elite Obelisk Swarmers (Hangar Pets) that indicated they have Attack Pattern Beta. They do not possess this ability.
