AI War:Parasite Eye
|This page is up to date for game version 6.010|
|Parasite Eyes are enormously powerful multi-barrel railcannons that deliver reclamator payloads. They require so much power to fire that a direct tap into the AI's warp grid is necessary. The AI will only devote that much power when player ships gang up on the AI overwhelmingly (more than 2 to 1). The only efficient way to kill the Eye is by destroying all of the non-wormhole guard posts of the AI on this planet, so you'll need to do guerrilla-style raids until it dies automatically with the last such guard post.|
This unit is an Eye and shares some perks with the other types.

How to counter when in the AI fleet
N.B. If you are taking over an AI planet anyway, there appears to be an alternative to killing every guard-post on the planet. If one has supply on the planet, they can kill the command station and build their own. The AI Eye will then self-destruct regardless of other guard-posts still living at this time.
Moving some of your fleet into Transports will generally stop the Parasite Eye from firing.
Note that despite the Railgun Ammo Type, this unit is not considered a Sniper for the purposes of Counter-Sniper abilities.
