Although seemingly costly for a smaller ship, the Destroyer 3 is a solid choice for piracy.
The biggest advantage of the Destroyer 3 is its high stats (which are comparable to that of a Big Mama) with a smaller hitbox than larger ships.
With the Destroyer 3
While Powerful, the Destroyer 3 looks less intimating than other larger ships, making it a lower profile ship for both bigger ships and fleets. This ship can defeat ships like the Junkie, the Royal Fortune, and with a skilled krew, even a Calm Spirit.
Against the Destroyer 3
Both Queen Barb Justice's can destroy this ship due to higher health and more krew.
