Big, mean and beautiful.

Slots and Slot Points
Note: Needs MK1, MK4, MK6, and MK7 information.
The strategies mostly depend on how much defensive items and what weapons you equip.
However, one known strategy is Triple Torpedo, Mine, and Missile Launcher for the weapons with the defensive items being shields, and a turbo. However, this only works for MK5 and above, so don't try this if your Defender is MK4 or below. Defenders are more defensive ships, but have more blue slots than red slots (The opposite of a Shooter), and with only three weapon slots at MK7, there aren't much useful combos. Also, with ??? speed at MK7, unless you have turbo, this ship can be pretty slow, even at a higher level.
This is an example of a offensive-class defensive strategy, with some HP boosting items with it. This strategy has two heavy-damage weapons in its inventory, so this strategy can usually destroy most enemies. However, be aware of the cooldown of the two weapons (Railgun and Big Berta). The cooldown of the two weapons usually leaves the user vulnerable to additional attacks. You can also switch out that torpedo for a Cannon. You only need one Big Shield, because the Defender only has five blue slots with six in each at MK7.
Note: Needs MK7 photo.
- With 50 base defence at MK7, this ship has the highest base defense points.
- This ship is the slowest ship in the game.
