Paradox

Harrasement / Late Game

The space time continuum belongs to the Paradox. Equally difficult to escape as it is to destroy, the Paradox can appear out of thin air through teleportation to begin its assault on unsuspecting victims. The Paradox is equipped with the ultimate in weapon diversification capable of dealing rapid burst damage at close range, medium sniper damage at long range, and heavy AOE damage with a devastating Charged Blast. The Paradox can fire on the move and slow down time for its enemies while speeding up time for its allies. As a time warping ship it is capable of bending space time to its will and haulting its death at a moments notice. Yet with all of its powers over time, it is vulnerable to stuns and solid base defense.
