Fly is a Tier 1 ship in Starblast.io. The Fly is currently the only tier 1 ship in the Vanilla game mode, and thus is the only starting ship. It is incredibly fast and is one of the most agile ships only being surpassed by the Shadow X-1 and the FuryStar, respectively. It has a single cannon that fires a relatively rapid but weak shot from the center of the ship.
Sharing the game link on social media, or buying an Elite Commander Pass allows you to start each match with a fully upgraded Fly, rather than the completely un-upgraded fly (hitting the Twitter or Facebook button on the website before you join a game it does the thing as buying a ECP). This provides quite a hefty advantage in the beginning of the game, as it makes it faster and easier to upgrade or be somewhat competent in fighting. Since it is the starting ship, and cannot be downgraded, it has an infinite number of lives as long as the Survival Mode survival period has not been engaged. To prevent this from being exploited, after each death the Fly will lose all its upgrades. In team mode the fly has 4 lives to prevent endless running and making the attacking team have to destroy the base.
Due to the small size and high speed/agility, this ship is incredibly difficult to hit/kill, especially when facing off against ships with large pulses such as the Shadow X-3 or Advanced-Fighter. However, the small shield capacity does mean that most high tier ships will be able to kill the Fly with one or two shots.
Since the Fly is only a tier 1 ship, it only has the ability to hold a single secondary weapon. This severely reduces the effectiveness of combative pods such as attack or defense pods as they will essentially double the surface area an opponent can land a hit. Rockets and missiles are both relatively effective when used by a fly, though selling the required 100 or 250 gems would take 5 and 7.5 separate trips respectively.
The Fly can easily kill an un-upgraded ship of any tier potentially up to 5 in a duel when piloted properly. The rather accurate damage and the difficulty to hit also makes this ship perform exponentially well in teams. A group of three fully upgraded Flies can strip the shields off a larger target in a matter of seconds and will usually be able to avoid the majority of incoming damage by constantly changing directions.
