Minesweepers

From Outscape Wiki

(Redirected from Minesweeper Module)

Minesweepers are a type of special ship module used to both detect and remove enemy minefields.

  • Minesweeper modules are only compatible with Corvette-class hulls.
  • Two types of Minesweeper module are available, and must be unlocked through the relevant research. Higher-tier Minesweepers remove minefields more quickly.
  • Minesweepers require fuel (olzine) to activate, and will not function without it.
  • The flagship of a fleet must have a Minesweeper module installed in order for that fleet to sweep minefields. Having multiple ships equipped with Minesweepers does improve their effectiveness (their sweeping abilities stack).
  • An activated Minesweeper will reveal any enemy minefields present in the flagship's Sensor radius, and will automatically begin decreasing their density after a short delay. The sweeping fleet is free to move while doing this, and may safely enter enemy minefields.
