The Measured Response

The Measured Response is one of several ships players can pilot in Fleet Battles.

In story mode it is deployed by The Measured.


The Measured Response can’t really take too many hits... but that doesn’t mean it should be written off as weak! This little ship has an awesome turn rate and decent acceleration, along with a moderate top speed and recharge rate. Its controls are different from most ships, so it does take a little getting used to at first!

Its primary weapon, Red Tape, shoots several canisters that track and hone in on enemy ships. Bolts, beams, and other weapons pass right through them, so they’re pretty much impossible to destroy - the enemy will need to rely on their flight skills to dodge them! Did we mention that if they hit the enemy, it slows them down, making them easier to hit? Yeah, that's a thing.

The Demotivator is an excellent way to prevent opponents from getting in too close. It’s an area-of-effect blast that radiates out around the ship and damages anything within range, including enemy projectiles! If the time is taken to practice and learn the controls, The Measured Response can become a true champion in battles.
