Second Galaxy Ships Build Guide

Second Galaxy Ships GuideBefore you head to the ships build guide, you should be aware of how the combat works – how the ship utilizes its attachments during the combat. If you have no idea how battle works or control works, be sure to read the basics guide here ->

You need four things to build a ship: –

  • Weapons
  • Devices
  • Components
  • Ammo

Weapons: –

  1. Railgun
  2. Blaster
  3. Cannon
  4. Laser
  5. Drone Bay
  6. Launcher

You can equip a variety of weapons to the ship. When choosing the weapons for your ship, pay attention to these stats: –

  • DPS/Damage Per Cycle
  • Range
  • Activation Cost
  • Cooldown

DPS – Usually, heavy weapons give you the best DPS. (Single barrels – light weapons, dual or quad barrels – heavy weapons). Another category of weapons in the Second Galaxy game is combat and sniper. For example – combat railgun, sniper railgun. Sniper weapons provide more range, while combat weapons provide more DPS.

Range – If the target is far or not in range, the ship would not be able to attack it. If you want to strike from a long distance, equip the weapons which provide you long-ranged attacks. For example – sniper weapons.

Activation Cost – To use or activate the weapons in Second Galaxy, you need energy. In short, using weapons cost energy. Without energy or spending the activation cost, you would not be able to use the weapons. Usually, heavy weapons and sniper weapons cost much higher energy as compared to the light & combat weapons.

Cooldown – After using the weapon for one time, it will go in a cooldown stage and during that period, you would not be able to use it. Some weapons have a high cooldown, while some get back to normal in no time.

Second Galaxy Devices: –

  1. Enhancer
  2. Extended Enhancer
  3. Area Enhancer
  4. Recharger
  5. Extended Recharger

Components: –

  • Damage Enhancer

Using these components in the ship helps you to boost damage, energy cap, range, shield, and speed like attributes.

Ammo: –

Size & Rank Of Weapons, Devices, Components

Second Galaxy Ships GuideWeapons, Devices & Components in Second Galaxy come in three sizes; small, medium, and large. To check the size of these things, go to the ship hangar -> pay close attention to the icon(weapon or device or component) -> at the top-right corner of each weapon/device icon, there would be the size – S, M, L. Or tap a weapon or device -> details -> in the (i) tab, under the specs, you can check the size. If you see U, it means universal(can be applied to all kinds of devices).

Rank – weapons, devices, and components come in five qualities or rank – r1(grey), r2(green), r3(blue), r4(purple), r5(orange). Higher the quality of a weapon/device/component, the more attributes a ship get. Pay attention to the color of these items to check their ranks or check the details page.

Second Galaxy Ships – Ship Processor & Ship Power

In the Ship Hangar menu, when you select the ship, the game shows its details on the right side. At the bottom part of the details section, there are two fields; processor and power. What are they?

  • Power – It describes the power output value provided by the ship reactor
  • Processor – It represents the processing capability of shipboard items

All the devices or weapons or components consume the power or processor abilities to work. To check the cost or power or processing value consumed by these -> go to the ship hangar -> tap the weapon or device or component -> details -> go to the gear tab -> there you can check the info; processor, power, attachment type, attachment slot, etc.

Heavy ships or high tier ships provide more power and processor value.

Ship Stats: –

  • Processor – Weapons, Devices, Components consume the processor capacity
  • Power – Weapons, Devices, Components consume the power
  • DPS – Damage Per Second
  • Range – Range of the weapons installed by the player on a ship
  • Shield Resistance – Resistance to the specific type of weapon attacks; EM, Kinetic, Thermal

How to build the best ship in Second Galaxy?

What would be the best configuration? We would recommend you to follow the default configuration. Go to the ship hangar -> select the ship -> tap the configure button -> default -> apply.

Once you learn all the key concepts, try building the ship manually. Here are some tips to configure or build ships wisely: –

  • Frigates Build – small size weapons/devices/components
  • Destroyers Build – small size weapons(multi-barreled)/devices/components
  • Cruisers Build – medium-size weapons/devices/components
  • Battlecruiser Build – large size weapons/devices/components
  • Battleships Build – large size weapons(multi-barreled)/devices/components
