Shipwright-Buddy.pngShipwright says... The Kraken's large, forward-facing mortars are sure to strike fear into the hearts of any foe.


The Kraken's strong armament and high cargo capacity allow for it to fill a multitude of roles, in and out of combat. However, its painfully slow turn speed makes it quite vulnerable at close ranges. All substantial cannon are in the forward part of the ship, and when paired with poor maneuverability, a stern lock on this ship is detrimental.

Trivia

Previously, this ship was only unlockable via reward from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" event in 2017 or obtained via the use of 10 Ghost Ship Vouchers. However, the ship was later made accessible to all players around February 13, 2020. The ship now requires a Kraken Voucher to construct, obtainable through purchase with Scrap.

The Kraken has a fairly unique mortar placement, they are farther back in the ship which lowers range, but allows two size 4 chasers to be fit on the bow. These mortars can nearly turn 90 degrees to one side, making them extremely useful in a broadside.

It is hard to board a Kraken due to her high, fairly straight, sides. The best way to get on is to jump up backward onto the gundeck.
