The Anti-Bio beam

The Anti-Bio beam is an unconventional weapon that damages enemy crew. With it, you can cripple enemy ships by killing their crew. It has a couple of pros and cons: Pros: -Does INSTANT damage to crewmembers hit. This is significant because even if they are in a medbay you can still kill them. -Range...

Re: What is your favourite ship - and why?

Mantis B is a blast if you get plenty of mantis crew. Nothing more satisfying than boarding 4 mantis, 2 boarding drones, then when the teleporter cools down, teleporting 4 more boarders! Few manned ships can hold up against dealing with ten boarders.

Re: Lone Wolf challenge

I'm surprised you didn't upgrade your engine at all. You must have gotten cloak early on to deal with missiles. My idea was to have level 3 helm and max out engines, that way to could use your sole engi to repair or man guns vs weaker opponents. A combination of stealth 3 and stealth weapons would a...

Re: Sudden, shocking failure of design

Cloak definitely helps. Its helpful for the superweapon on the 3rd form. Defeating the flagship is not hard with the following:

3 shield bubbles
Stealth
Teleporter
Weapons that can disable 4 shield bubbles

Re: Lone Wolf challenge

True, but I think that the Engi B would be the most challenging ship for this particular challenge. And since it already starts with drones (and drone control isn't a 'mannable' station) it makes sense to focus on drones.

Re: What do you wish was in FTL?

Type C variants: even crazier/harder than B variants. Human C ship "Harpy": Similar to Red Tail but with 4 Leto missiles Engi C ship "Event Horizon": Boarding Drone, Breach Bomb, Breach Missile. Hoover them to death! Zoltan C ship "Aether": No medbay, door control, sens...

Lone Wolf challenge

There is already a challenge to beat the game with an unshielded Stealth B ship (quite hard). How about beating the game with Engi B and no additional crew? That too would be pretty difficult; I imagine the best way to manage is to upgrade your doors/helm ASAP, try to get 3 antiship drones, drone re...

Re: Missing Blue options

Forgot some: Slug Repair Gel: When you get the event that has a mine attached to your ship, there is a blue option to coat the mine in gel to prevent detonation. In nebulae where you can "search for a ship" you can deploy your slug gel, which gets detected by a friendly slug ship offering ...

Missing Blue options

Many weapons, augments, and crewmembers offer blue options. This is great, but the annoying thing is there are many things that DONT offer blue options. It ends up giving some ships/loadouts a blatant advantage. For instance, a Rock ship with Rock and Engi crew, a beam weapon, ion weapon teleporter,...

Re: The best and worst augments

Other good augments: The augments that are good, and only outclassed by the best augments. Automated reloader: 'nuff said. As other people mentioned, makes your weapons considerably more effective, stacks, and synergizes with other abilities. Stealth weapons: Allows you to dismantle enemies with imp...
