How to fight the Swarm in Star Trek Fleet Command

Swarm ships are always grouped by clusters, and that's why a swarm ship has more strength than a common hostile of the same level. If you cannot defeat them, we'll give you some advice to help you understand how to efficiently hunt swarm ships.

Starting from the basics, all swarm clusters within the game are Scout ships. While having this in mind, there are several flaws against Scout ships that we can use to our advantage.

The first and most obvious would be using an Explorer ship since they are stronger when fighting against Scouts. But you might still be below the required strength to face your opponent. Besides, you may have another stronger type of ship, which would also suffice.

So what can you do if you are still having trouble defeating swarm clusters?. You must take full advantage of the officers that you have available.

As you may know, every officer has 2 abilities. These abilities are only enabled when the officer is assigned as a ship's captain or as part of the ship's bridge.

There are many officers whose abilities will put you at a significant advantage in PVE combat. In addition, some officers have good skills against Swarm ships.

Check our guide on Stark Trek Fleet Command: Best Swarm crew to know more about which officers are best for defeating swarm clusters.

Swarm dailies and Swarm Biominerals.

Once you reach level 15 of Operations in your base, you'll unlock daily missions that involve defeating Swarm clusters. Every day there are 3 missions available, one requires defeating 50 of them, and the other requires defeating stronger Swarm ships. However, the requirements will change as you upgrade your operations building. So some of these dailies will get harder and harder.

By defeating Swarm ships or completing the daily missions, you will mainly acquire Swarm Biominerals and Frequency Modulators.

Swarm Biominerals can be used in the Refinery in exchange for other materials such as Parsteel, Tritanium, or Dilithium.

Frequency Modulators are required to upgrade ships like USS Franklin, a ship built specifically for hunting Swarm ships.
