Eh, well Auto's always seem really rare when I play as the Shrike, and I tend to have a load of missiles on said ship, so I found S.Bombing your own crew to make them clone to be useful, but I suppose there are probably better uses for a missile... :?:

It's only really wasteful if you're going to run out.

Wining the game with 30 missiles left over isn't any worse than winning the game with 50 missiles left over. The problem comes when you're going into the final battle with 10 missiles and 3 missile weapons.

Because you were busy wasting them on killing your Lanius crew :D

Another problem could be going into the final battle with 1hp borders. :D

By then, you shouldn't have wasted all your missiles and can spare one for the crew.

But only for the end. You don't want to follow that advice every time your Lanius reach 2HP or else you'll be out of missiles.

Did you know that if you board the Rebel Flagship in the Weapons Rooms with two crew and then you Mind Control the Human inside, they'll be immediately booted into the main part of the ship. So if you want to quickly destroy the Missile Launcher or Ion Cannon in Phase 1, just kick the crew out and have fun destroying it without resistance.

well that's news to me... but would that make stage 3 just a tad bit more annoying with additional boarders?



Anyway my tip: 2 stun ions can cause crew to be infi-stunned. As well as the ion damage to that room continuously stacking. can be fun to use when targeting a specific system and/or when a fire is going on.

If you have a teleporter and Mind Control, what are you doing not killing the enemy crew in Phase 1?
