Ships are the vessels piloted by each player in There are currently 32 ships spread out across 7 tiers. New ships are constantly being created and suggested by members of the community via the subreddit, 6 of which have been added to the game thus far, and 12 total ships have been added to the game itself. Check out the tutorial for more information on how to get started creating your own. Generally, ships in higher tiers are stronger yet slower than ships of lower tiers, with a few exceptions. Ships can be upgraded to enhance their abilities up to level 7 (level 7 ships come maxed). Each ship can also be upgraded to a ship of a higher tier, up to Tier 7, by filling their crystal cargo, from a choice of two ships. This is visually represented in the Ship Tree.

Note: This is the current ship tree (the one above is the first week test of a revamped tree) newer ship tree Also note there was a ship tree added onto the website platform of Starblast (by hitting ESC)

Tier 1[edit | edit source]

There is currently only one ship,the Fly,available at level one. The Fly is arguably the weakest ship is the game with one of the highest agility and speed levels. This will be the ship the player will start with in most game modes. This ship also has limited lives in team and invasion (team mode 4 lives) (invasion mode 3 lives).

Tier 1 ships have one Secondaries slot:

Tier 2[edit | edit source]

Tier 2 currently harbors two different ships. While these two ships are much better than the fly in terms of suitability, they are still relatively weak and are often powered through to acquire a tier 3 ship. These have two secondary slots.

This tier includes what many consider as first ships that can competently and effectively be used in prolonged combat. The ships found here are the maximum tier ships available to the player in a team mode game prior to upgrading the station.

Tier 6[edit | edit source]

The jump from tier 5 to tier six marks another large jump in firepower, just as is the case between tiers 2 and 3. Every ship here would be considered a heavy hitter, with all but the Rock-Tower, Barracuda and the H-Mercury sporting a pulse. This tier also contains the largest number of ships out of any tier at 8 ships.

Tier 7[edit | edit source]

This tier contains the end game ships. All tier 7 ships other than the Shadow X-3 have incredibly high amounts of firepower, which can be debilitating when attacking a ship of a lower tier and excels in destroying bases. (The X3 has great firepower, its energy generation is very low) A skilled pilot or a group can relatively easily kill a T-7 with a lower tier ship though, due to the low maneuverability of most ships found in tier 7. This tier has limited lives in invasion (3) and the other game modes 0 lives (die once back to level 6 in team, game over in survival)
