Impact Bumpers is a helm tool to reduce Impact damage caused by rams, bumps and mines. Engine thrust is significantly reduced making the tool's usage only valuable when actual damage is taken and counter-productive if the player wants to move or turn the ship.

While activated during rams, bumps and mine hits, turning ships back into arc takes longer due to reduced engine thrust. It is therefore strongly recommended to use Kerosene or Moonshine during impact to increase vertical drag and stabilize the ship, but to use Impact Bumpers before impact happens. This is possible due to the 5 seconds deactivation delay.

Like all helm tools it is only useful for the player flying the ship and has no effect if equipped by other crew members.

Common Usage Edit

Impact Bumpers is found on all ships intending to take a lot of impact damage. It is not the primary tool for rams (see Moonshine and Kerosene) but can help to reduce damage if combined with those tools (especially if used defensively). In general, it is also used to reduce damage taken by bumping to the ground against balloon destroying opponents without fast release.

Unless the pilot has Drogue Chute, Impact Bumpers is used when already low on the ground if used to fight against balloon destroying ships.
