Mike's FTL tips

Postby MantisManMike » Mon Jun 17, 2019 2:56 pm

Full playlist of FTL tips

Kicking off with ion dodging, more planned later. =)

This video starts with some basic ion dodges, then some more advanced ones -- including two or three on Balance Mod that I can almost guarantee you haven't seen before. ;)

I'm demonstrating this using a mod called Combat Sims.

Zoltan Shield piercing (part 1)

This video shows how beams can "pierce" Zoltan Shields, and how to use shield-breaking weapons to extend that trick into the late-game.

--EDIT-- if you want to practise this, the mod I'm using is available here:
