Re: The Basilisk: Putting the MAN in MANTIS

This is one of those guides I could happily read more than once as it's quite entertaining. The only thing I would add is regarding auto assaults. Before sending in the boarding drone to take off the last hull point, I'll teleport my mantis into the empty room first, if it has one, thus forcing the ...

Clearly I was blessed by the RNG, as I managed to pick up 4 extra crew and stealth systems before I'd even cle...
