' Frigate-class vessels pack the most firepower, sporting numerous cannons and strong below-deck broadside capability. The warship's strongest armor is near the front with a weakness in the rear.

Considered by many to be one of the most effective tier of ships in the area of naval warfare, this claim is supported by the fact that it has the most hull points, most deck cannons, a larger crew capacity, and is slightly faster than the galleon tier. However, it does not hold the prize for largest broadside, which is lost to the War Galleon.

All frigates have two main masts (larger versions have additional smaller fore and aft masts) and a raised mid-deck. This elevated forward area can function as a look-out platform or additional forward-facing gun mounts for regular Frigates and War Frigates.

Frigates are the only class of ship that has forward-facing cannons, giving them an advantage when attacking while advancing on an enemy. This is one reason why it is favored in privateering (SvS), as it can fire at ships that run and repair.

Light Frigate

These fast attack ships carry as many broadside guns as a standard sloop and as many deck guns as a standard galleon.

These gunships are a noticeable jump in price, although still well below the cost of a warship, but the heavy armor, additional firepower and nearly double cargo capacity make them a worthy acquisition.

War Frigate

These massive armored vessels are floating fortresses and one of the most deadly ships a pirate can possess; bristling with cannons on every deck. They also have widest firing angle of any vessel, though there are none that can shoot directly backwards.

Some pirates like to show their wealth by sailing these floating fortresses.

Only the slower War Galleon carries more broadside guns than the massive War Frigate.
