Ship of the Week - Raven the Pirate Hunter

starfield ship of the week

Pirates are a bane of society, even space-faring ones like the humanity featured in Bethesda’s newest open-world RPG, Starfield. It’s even worse in the game because the vast galaxy hosts many places for these vermin to hide and build a stronghold.

Of course, ridding space of these criminals is just one of your mandates - or hobbies! - in Starfield. Reddit user blackdracula95 seems to have taken this undertaking seriously, designing a ship to eliminate those piloted by ruffians of the Crimson Fleet faction.

Isn’t this ship, The Raven, a thing of beauty?

The Raven is more than just looks, of course. A behemoth with a Mass of 4251 is powered by a Class C reactor with a jump range of 30 lightyears and protected by two particle cannons, one emission gun, and a Shield capacity of 1450.

Rounding up this combat capability is a mobility rating of 100, making it very agile - an attribute needed when constantly engaging in combat with pirates, Spacers, and members of the Ecliptic faction.

Here’s an image of The Raven finishing up a pirate ship in combat.

Do you know what the best part of this ship is? Despite its looks, the creator said that they built this fighting vessel without using mods. We don’t know how long it took to create a tank such as this, but we’re sure the battle performance is worth the wait and the effort in saving up for the parts!

Strike terror at the hearts of your opponents with the awesome M-class ships! This mod will let you commandeer these and other previously off-limit vessels, but, as a warning, it can break your game.
