Re: Stealth ship is garbage

I agree with you. But with your starting weapons you have a beam weapon and a dual laser. The dual laser is your only hope of getting through shields (and most enemies start with 1-2 shields) leaving you a small window to beam their shields first so you can dish out more damage. This is your proble...

Re: Stealth ship is garbage

The first time I beat the game was with the stealthship, without shields even. Stupid RNG never gave me an opportunity to buy them. As long as the RNG doesn't throw drones at you, you can flawlessly KO most early ships with the starting equipment. The mini beam can take out shields AND weapons on m...

Re: Stealth ship is garbage

Ya, i have been trying to use the ship for the last 7-8 play throughs. I usually target the weapons/shields first. The biggest problem is that you take so much damage and like I said before about drones, RUN from drones!

Re: Stealth ship is garbage

It's a stealth ship... It's designed for stealth not extensive combat situations. lol Then what do you do when you get to the end? Ram the boss? Beam weapons are supposed to be able to pass through shields (while losing damage) if need be. Having a beam weapon that says it can pass through shields ...

Stealth ship is garbage

So I recently unlocked the Engi stealth ship and thought it would be a fun ship to use. I start a game with it and see that you don't have shields. I figured, "Hey, I can just evade and use stealth". I pour all possible scrap into engines/stealth and still get destroyed.. Stealth only last...
