SILVERSTRIKE UAV TURRET


The Silverstrike UAV turret was initially intended to be used as a powerful tool to force enemies to split up their fleets and take a more aggressive approach. Following the turret's release, it became apparent that it was not in line with our goals, and we deployed a hotfix to resolve the issue.

To address ongoing community feedback, we are planning a buff to the minimum range of the Silverstrike - changing from 290 to 265. The change will go live as part of the 9.49 update. 

Thank you for your patience and feedback. Please find the updated stat block below.
