For player use the back-mounted weapons are very hard to adapt to, but placing a pulsar in the S slots makes it very powerful early game.
The Chrysalis has a Mass Driver M2 facing backward, which it uses to push itself away while attacking. Long range weapons usually have an advantage against this enemy.
- Non-veterans are armed with Plasma Thrower M2 and Mass Driver M2. They have very low turn rate that makes dodging very hard for them.
- Veterans are equipped with a Stasis Field, a Mass Driver M2, an ECM Jammer, and a Quantum Detonator. They do not deal high damage, but with the ECM Jammer and a good speed, missiles and drones struggle enough against them to make them annoying foes. When reduced to low HP, they will attempt to perform a kamikaze attack using their Quantum Detonator. It is also dangerous when engaged as part of a larger group, usually 3 or more of them vs. the player, as a swarm of these ships can easily stunlock you.
