The Trident is a Tier 2 ship in Starblast.io which fires two parallel front-facing lasers at a moderate rate of fire. While its base lasers deal a relatively low amount of damage, this means that the Trident can fire continuously without losing DPS. When the Trident runs out of energy, it fires alternatively from each side. This ship's attack, unlike the Delta-Fighter, does not weaken with range.
As a Tier 2 ship, the Trident is not strong by itself and best used for mining and upgrading to the next tier. Due to its poor combative ability, it is not recommended to upgrade unless made necessary by an enemy confrontation.
Compared to the Delta-Fighter, the Trident is slower and deals less damage, but has markedly higher shields and shield regen. Unless the player can get a sneak attack and ram the opponent's Delta-Fighter, the Trident will likely lose, regardless of skill. Unlike the Delta-Fighter, the Trident does not benefit greatly from additional secondary pods, as its poor agility and abysmal DPS prevents it from making any significant difference in a team battle.
The Trident is one of the few ships in the game where upgrading energy regeneration is not cost-effective. Purchasing two upgrades to the energy regeneration will increase the rate at which energy is generated by 33%, but to capitalize on this one upgrade would need to be invested in the damage output. This in total would cost 30 additional gems to get to the next level or a 37.5% increase in cost.
The Trident is likely inspired by the Klingon Bird-Of-Prey in the Star Trek Universe, due to its resemblance.
