The Skirmisher is the first type of hull a player can research at the Naval Lab. It has greater max weight, armor points and cargo capacity than the Gunboat but is also slightly slower as a trade off, having a map speed of 43mph and a combat speed of 20mph. It is tied with the Gunboat for highest evade bonus at 30%.

Skirmishers are a good early on replacement for the Gunboat, able to use much heavier weapons and armor. They are used mostly up until players have researched the Longship, (and switched to using only using Longships thereafter). They do, however make good scouts, resource stealers and probe ships alongside Gunboats, even at much higher player levels.

They can also be used as flagships for fleets composed of much larger ships, masking the true intent of a fleet, baiting players into attacking the fleet looking for an easy kill.
