- Used to upgrade existing Forsaken hulls with new abilities.
- As of Sep 2013, only certain blue print-hulls can be upgraded this way.
- Retrofitting hulls, weapons, specials or armors gives inherent upgrades to every copy of that type.
- This contrasts with refitting a hull which applies is more akin to taking a weapon off a single ship and replacing it with a better weapon on that ship.
- The Retrofit Lab requires a Naval Lab Level 7 in order to be built.
- The Retrofit Lab can be upgraded to level 5.
- The Level 5 Retrofit Lab gives access to any level 5 retrofits, Level 4 Retrofit Lab gives access to any level 4 retrofits, etc.
- The related blueprint is also required before the retrofit research is available.
- Only blueprints are retrofittable. For example, the Hammerhead A, Hammerhead B & Battle Barge A are all retrofittable. However, the Hammerhead and Battle Barge researched in the Naval Lab are not retrofittable.
- Hull retrofit time increases according to the number of hulls of that type actually built. However, retrofitting weapons, specials, armors or tactical modules is only 1 day each at least for all R1 retrofits.
- Hull retrofits are designed for mid to high level players (approx. L40 and higher).
- Kixeye designed the other retrofits for players level 55 and higher.
- The uranium cost is a tough barrier to low and mid level players.
- In March of 2014, many of the builds and research times have significantly decreased.
- The old build times can help you estimate the new build times.
- Resource requirements remain the same.
