HOIST THE COLORS
To be the pirate you have to BEAT the pirate.
Exciting updates have come to Arena Commander's Pirate Swarm game mode in Alpha 3.7, including a monstrous new boss battle and an all-new reward for those hardy enough to defeat the attacking horde - a fully customized Pirate Gladius.
Strap in, ready the guns, and prepare to face off against multiple waves of piratical assailants who want nothing more than to ravage your ship and send you to a starry grave.

GETTING THE AGGRESSION OUT
Battle the new Pirate Swarm in Alpha 3.7
Should you be a stout enough fighter to best the scurvy scourge, you'll find yourself staring down the abundant guns of a formidable new boss - a deadly pirate Hammerhead with a cadre of Buccaneers watching its back.
Fear not though. Taking out the dastardly gunship’s supporting minions will bring friendly AI pilots to fight by your side, helping to turn the tide of battle in your favor.
A victory will earn you the Pirate Aggressor badge and give you access to acquire not only the Pirate Caterpillar, but the all-new Pirate Gladius too. With an intimidating custom livery and a specially curated loadout, the Pirate Gladius is perfectly suited to pilots with a proclivity for scraps and skirmishes. A bountiful reward indeed.
BETWEEN YOU AND VICTORY...
Once you've completed the Pirate Swarm and defeated all who oppose you...
You can take their spoils as your own.
