The Qirex Prototype is a ship featured in Wipeout 2048.
The team at Qirex stripped out the loading bays from their ship, replacing it with an experimental rack of 50-cal miniguns. While unable to pick up any other weapons, the Qirex Prototype carries enough ammo to last any type of event, making it one of the most deadly ships out there.
Watch out! The miniguns attached onto the Qirex Prototype can instantly kill one opponent ship in just one full ammo clip. So this is certainly one of the most powerful weapons you've ever seen! But in races, it's very risky to keep this ship alive as even with all 10 rounds absorbed does not restore the ship health more than you would expect. And this ship doesn't even allow you to pick anything from Weapon Pads. Otherwise, in Online Combat, this is the best weapon to shoot the opponents down with extreme ease. Be lucky enough to destroy them several times, but are you lucky enough to survive your own ship and win the event?
- To unlock the The Unlucky 7 trophy, use this ship to destroy all AI ships by yourself before crossing the finish line during a single event. It's highly recommended to attempt it in the very first event (Empire Climb Class C Race without weapons). Basically, all weapon pads are off, but not the Miniguns built onto the Qirex Prototype.
