Wing Commander Privateer Player's Guide


The Demon combines high velocities and powerful acceleration powers with a wide array of deadly weapons. Its torpedo loadout can even take out capital ships like the Kamekh or Paradigm with relative ease. If you are forced to fight the Demon in a close dogfight, try to make a side attack on that location’s weak armor.


Behind the Screens

The 3D mesh created for the Demon for Privateer was later used to develop the Scimitar in Super Wing Commander and the Phantom and Banshee in Wing Commander Armada.
