XWA Blindspot Guide - Medium Starships

Assault Frigate

Measured From: Hull Laser Range: 3.25 Engine Wash: . 50

This blindspot is located between the bottom wing and the protrusion in front of it. It is recommended that you come in from the bottom, cutting speed as you get closer. Once you get in, match speeds and finish it off. Download the filmclip of technique.

Dreadnaught

Measured From: Comm Sys Laser Range: 3.10 Engine Wash: .93

This blindspot is located where the neck of the ship meets the bridge. Come in from the rear and the side, almost parallel to the dreadnaught. As you get close start cutting speed and match speeds as soon as you are in position. Download the filmclip of technique.

Escort Carrier

Measured From: Bridge Laser Range: 1.70 Engine Wash: .60

This blindspot is very similar to the one in XvT. Come in from behind the carrier and cut speed as you get close. Get up right next to the hull where it slopes back and match speeds. From there you should be able to destroy the ship. Download the filmclip of technique.

Interdictor

Measured From: Bridge Laser Range: 3.20 Engine Wash: .30

This ship has a blindspot that is very similar to that of the ISD and ISD II. Just come in from the back, but on this one, you want to make sure you are directly under the bridge. Once you are in, you can move over to the left or right a little and shoot at the shield generator in front of you.

This medium starship shares the same secondary blindspots as the other heavier class of Star Destroyers. This is probably the easiest of them all to get into. There are very few laser emplacements along the rear and the engine wash gives you a wider area in which to maneuver. Download the filmclips of technique.

Light Calamari Cruiser

Measured From: Comm Sys Laser Range: 1.55 Engine Wash: .65

To reach this blindspot, come at the cruiser from slightly above and almost perpendicular to it. As you get closer, start turning towards the front and head towards the left side of the right engine. Once you get close to the hull, keep going till you are near the front of the engine, or the turbolasers can target you. Once the guns stop firing, match speeds and finish it off.

Modified Frigate

Measured From: Bridge Laser Range: 1.50 Engine Wash: .35

This ship is another that has the same blindspot as it did in XvT. However, this one is one of the more difficult to get into due to its small size and the amount of firepower of the frigate. It is located directly behind the docking platform and very close to the hull. Come in from behind the frigate and drop your speed as soon as you get next to the blindspot. Use the speed you have left to maneuver over and then match speeds with the frigate as soon as you are in position. Download the filmclip of technique.

Nebulon B Frigate

Measured From: Wing Laser Range: 1.50 Engine Wash: .35

The blindspot on the frigate is much easier to exploit than it was in XvT. Come in from the top and get right above the docking platform. Match speeds and blast away at the hull in front of you. Download the filmclip of technique.

Strike Cruiser

Measured From: Bridge Laser Range: 1.50 Engine Wash: .60

This ship also has a blindspot that is the same as it was in XvT. With only one laser near the nose, just come up from behind and slightly underneath. Once you get within range you should have no trouble finishing it off. Download the filmclip of technique.
