    Why the heck is the interceptor so slow and need 3 times as much utility spots. Speeder needs an update two. It needs more of everything.

    If it was made faster and had thre times the Yellow slots, wouldn't it just be a Speeder?

    I think it has its own niche in the game. It might be underpowered now while everyone needs Ship Pieces to upgrade it, but I think once people have upgraded it fully it will fit in just fine.

    It is fine, you just have to play it smart, like speeder. Moving all the time with nitro etc. Got to 4993 infamy without fleeting with a lvl 46 interceptor sporting 7061hp. Loadout missiles, mine, grenade, explo cannon, turbo, small shield and big bandage. There is plenty of players even higher with interceptor than me.

    It has a ton of firepower, even more than a defender, only shooter has more weapons.

    Unlike shooter (or defender) it has a yellow item, which are the best source for speed.

    I fail to see how you think it needs a buff.

    Interceptor gets 1.6 units of speed. It is the second fastest ship in Battle Bay. It also has the second highest weapon count, and though the HP leaves a little to be desired, I don't have any problems piloting one at my level (10k+ GS and lv34 interceptor here)

    I have encountered some brutal interceptors especially when two are fleeted, the use of a utility item makes them unpredictable while still having massive firepower relative to the majority of the other ships...

    *Scoffs* *Mutters something about interceptors being overpowered*

    But speeder definitely needs a buff!

    Yes I think interceptors are too underpowered especially the ones that are impossible to hit while they are barraging everything they have back successfully. They need a a buff so everyone will use it!!
    That's what the Bay needs! A META ship!

    Look dude, I think your point is proven wrong. Best would be not even continuing this one-sided argument.
    Case closed. Let's search for something else.

    It is not fast enough in any way. It was supposed to be fast and deadly but it simply isn’t fast at all. A medic noob is faste than a level 13 interceptor, it really is just a reboot of the shooter withought as much red slots. It is so freaking slow that it losses to a medic. They should upped its speed so that it is 0.02 less than the speeder, and should have been way less bulkier, because getting 10,000 pieces is hard enough already.

    How again is it slow? It has the second-highest speed cap. You can give it a nitro or an overboost.

    All you need is a good turbo (literally everyone has at least one) and a good nitro/OB (which most players do) and you have one fast, hard-hitting boat.

    All you guys are just idiotic, the interceptor is a SPECIAL SHIP MEANING THAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE A SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGE OVER ALL THE OTHER SHIPS. IT ONLY HAS ONE MORE ABILITY SLOT ( THE THING YOU SEE WHEN YOU CLICK ON A SHIP IN THE BUY SHIP PLACE) THAN A NON SPECIAL SHIP WHILE THE REAPER HAS TWO MORE THE INTERCEPTOR. AND ME NOT ONE SIDDED COMMIE, I JUST BELIEVE THAT INTERCEPTOR IS A BIG SCAM THAT ISN’T CLOSE TO THE VALUE I HAD TO GET FOR IT. IT SHOULD MAKE UP FOR ITS TWO MISING ABILITY SLOTS BY MAXING OUT SPEED AND ATTACK LIKE IT SHOULD HAVE.

    Okay. Slow down there, buckaroo... no need to bury us in caps.
    I think by "special ship" you mean event reward. The event ships are surprisingly easy to get if you play enough, and it's leveling that's the struggle.
    That said, there is no reason either of the event ships should have a significant advantage, because they would be way too overpowered after hitting a certain level.
    The core element of a game with different classes (like the BB ships) is that they must all be balanced against each other. And that's what the Interceptor (like any other ship) is: Strong, but not so strong as to completely the meta. The fact that its capabilities are at the same level as most other ships is a good thing.

    I actually have two turbos on my interceptor, still not fast enough. I’d like to seen them maxing out the speed and attack ability points ( the things you see when you tap on a ship in the buy a ship section ) so its ability points would finally be equal to the number of ability points the reaper has.

    Those points in the shop are abitritrary numbers, they don’t really mean anything, just a simple guideline of the pros and cons of the ship, adding them up use useless. They even said this before, but I couldn’t find that comment even if I tried because I can’t remeber if it was even on the forum or discord.
