Gravity Kills is a 5-player crossfaction space queue which comes with Normal, Advanced, and Elite variants.

In Gravity Kills, the Alliance has authorized an incursion on a Tzenkethi Protomatter farming site located at a Microquasar. It is your job to destroy their orbital stations around the black hole and put their protomatter facilities out of commission.


Mission Text[]

The Tzenkethi have 3 Protomatter Facilities with a shield that your weapons can't pierce. The USS Jupiter has a weapon that can be powered by Hawking Particles that can disable the shields around the Tzenkethi Protomatter Facility. You need to collect 10 Hawking Particles to power this weapon to disable the shield and you can destroy the 3 Gravictic Anchors to let the facility fall into the black hole.

  • Ships will keep spawning both at the facilities and to attack the Jupiter. Have at least one player focused on defending the Jupiter, someone in a large Battleship or Dreadnought, while the rest should focus on collecting the Hawking Particles
  • Tractor Beam Repulsors and Photonic Shockwave are useful means to push the enemy ships into the Black Hole.
  • Abilities that can increase movement speed will make it easier to avoid being sucked into the black hole, such as Evasive Maneuvers, Attack Pattern Omega, Trajector Jump, etc.
  • If you get too close to the black hole, you can warp out to save yourself. However, you will lose the Hawking Particle you're carrying.
