In this video, Barron discusses the comparison between the Banu Merchantman and Hull C ships in Star Citizen. He highlights the Merchantman’s advantages in combat, protected cargo hold, and multiple intended uses, making it a more logical choice over the Hull C.
In this video, the YouTuber Barron discusses the comparison between the Banu Merchantman and the Hull C ships in the game Star Citizen. He starts by mentioning a giveaway for a ship package and invites viewers to participate. Moving on to the topic at hand, he acknowledges that these two ships have different designs and purposes. The Hull C has more cargo space, with 4,600 compared to the Merchantman’s 3,500. However, Barron argues that the advantages of the Merchantman outweigh the higher cargo capacity of the Hull C. The Merchantman has two large cannons and additional turrets, making it more powerful in combat situations. It also has better component configurations and a more discrete appearance. On the other hand, the Hull C lacks protection for its cargo containers, making them susceptible to theft.
Barron explains that the Banu Merchantman has multiple intended purposes, including piracy and legal/illegal cargo hauling. It can also work in conjunction with other ships like the Endeavor, Crucible, and Reclaimer. Barron himself plans to use it as part of his fleet. Comparatively, the Hull C is primarily designed for cargo hauling, lacking the versatility of the Merchantman. He acknowledges that his arguments are based on concept stats and details since the ships are not yet in the game.
In terms of pricing, the Banu Merchantman is around $450, while the Hull C is valued at $250-$300. Barron believes that the extra cost of the Merchantman is worth it due to its additional functionalities. He highlights the benefits of having shops on the ship for selling components and illegal goods. He also mentions the ability to power off of miners and pirate other players with the Merchantman’s hidden guns. In his opinion, the Merchantman provides a practical and profitable approach, while the Hull C may require more protection and resources.
In conclusion, Barron emphasizes that personal preference plays a significant role in deciding between the two ships. However, he believes that the Banu Merchantman’s multiple intended uses, combat capabilities, and protected cargo hold make it a more logical choice. He encourages viewers to share their thoughts and ends the video by saying goodbye and expressing his hope that the information provided was helpful.
