The Leap is a small scout hull that offers good operational versatility at a low cost. In-Game Description


The Leap is the Scout hull of the Ripchee, and is immediately unlocked at the start of the game.

Overview & Strategy

The Leap is a light hull suitable for the construction of small intel-gathering ships. With a low resource cost to build and a fast construction time of 16 minutes, it is ideal for forming into small fleets. With three Small Weapon slots, the Leap has the highest attack potential of all Scout ships, but the lowest base Armour at only 167. These stats reflect the Ripchee philosophy; attacking with a pack of more fragile ships and using overwhelming firepower to achieve a quick victory.

New players are advised to outfit the Leap with Small Kinetic Cannons, as the starter Base Warp Engines will not be able to supply sufficient power to run three Small Power Cannons.

Trivia

  • At just 45m in length, the Leap is the smallest hull currently in the game.
