In Star Citizen you can purchase a number of ships with different uses. Some of them are equipped with a tractor beam. In this guide you will learn what this beam is. You will also find a list of all the ships that have it on board.
What is the tractor beam in Star Citizen
Tractor Beam is a laser beam that enables you to easily move objects directly from your ship. You can use it to tow other ships or clear a path of obstacles. Different ships have beams with different powers, so they work well in different situations.
Star Citizen 3.21.1 - list of ships with tractor beam
- ARGO SRV
- Crusader Spirit C1
- Drake Caterpillar
- Drake Cutlass Black
- Drake Vulture
- Origin 315p
- RSI Constellation Taurus
- MISC Hull-C
- Aegis Reclaimer
The ARGO SRV is designed primarily for towing heavy cargo and other ships. It is distinguished from others by the fact that it can move under quantum drive power while using a tractor beam.
Nomad is a medium-sized ship whose tractor beam can be controlled directly from the cockpit.
Crusader Spirit C1
The Crusader Spirit C1 is a ship designed primarily for carrying cargo. It also has a rather unique feature - the ability to bend the tractor beam. This means that you can grab cargo that is in front of or behind you.
The Drake Caterpillar is used to carry heavy loads. It has two tractor beams - on the right and left sides of the hull. They were placed in such a way that they can be used to load the ship.
Drake Cutlass Black
Cutlass Black is a multi-use ship. Indeed, it has several variants - including one that transforms the cargo bay into a medical facility. This causes it to be a great rescue ship.
The Drake Vulture is ideal for those who specialize in scrapping wrecks. This is because it has a tractor beam and a salvaging module.
Origin 315p is a ship for those who simply like to explore space. It has a very weak tractor beam controlled from the cockpit. Unfortunately, you can only operate it if the ship remains virtually motionless.
RSI Constellation Taurus
RSI Constellation Taurus has a tractor beam only in theory. This cargo ship has a control turret, however, at this point it is not functional.
MISC Hull-C is a cargo ship that has as many as four tractor beams. They have been placed in such a way as to facilitate the loading of cargo.
The Aegis Reclaimer is another ship that has been developed for wreck salvaging. It has a total of two tractor beams.
