For sole detection of enemy minefields, see Mine Detectors.

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 in a sweeping fleet does not improve their effectiveness (their sweeping abilities do not stack). However, multiple sweeping fleets (each led by an active minesweeper) do stack against enemy minefields, and can thus clear them more quickly than a single fleet would.
  • An activated Minesweeper will reveal any enemy minefields present in the flagship's Sensor radius, and after entering a minefield will automatically begin decreasing its density after a short delay. The sweeping fleet is free to move while doing this, and will not take damage from an enemy minefield while its minesweeper is engaged.
  • When multiple minefields are laid on top of each other, minesweepers sweep the most powerful minefield first (every 15 minutes they check if another minefield in the stack is then more powerful and will switch to sweeping it if so).
