One clever Starfield player has managed to design a ship that’s almost immune to all damage, and has shared their build online.
Starfield is out now! Check out our review below.
Players have spent hours creating their own designs, recreating famous spacecraft from popular media, or trying to build the dumbest, or coolest, ships imaginable.
The topic of today’s discussion though is a ship that’s basically invincible, and incredibly overpowered. Reddit user Solace_of_the_Thorns shared their Starfield creation with a video showing their ship taking little to no damage when fired at from the front. Enemy starships continued to fire at the player’s vessel, with the majority of blasts soaring straight past, making it partially immune to frontal damage.
Solace_of_the_Thorns explained the ship’s design in the comments, saying: "This is the Fat L, or the 'L-Wing'. It's dumb and ugly and maybe the strongest ship design you can create in this whole damn game … While puttering around space and fighting some pirates, I started questioning enemy AI. How do NPC ships target the player? Do they lead the player? Do they aim right at them? Where do they aim?”
They went on to add, “Fun fact: enemy weapons and missiles target this midpoint. Which means when you're facing toward them, they can't hit you … their 'stray' shots can hit you, but any attack that's on-target will miss, whizzing past harmlessly. This means that as you get closer to the enemy, they actually miss you more, which makes you monstrously good in a dogfight. Basically it's stupid-as-f**k and crazy-effective."
Safe to say other Starfield fans were impressed, with many saying they’re going to use the L-Wing ship as inspiration for their own designs. “Time to make a supersized B-wing,” read one comment. “That's funny. Ugly as f**k, but I'm gonna attempt to build one and see. Thank you for sharing," said another.
Players can get to building their own starships right now, as Starfield is available for all on Xbox Series X/S and PC, and can also be downloaded with an Xbox Game Pass subscription.
