Star Control: Origins – About Combat & Enemies

About Combat & Enemies

1) A good tactic to hit your enemy if you’re having trouble, is to wait until he comes straight towards you from a distance, and fire a volley of your long range rapid-fire weapon of choice in advance: he will most likely not move and several shots will hit.

 

 

2) Touching the green edge of the combat area will deal damage over time to anyone, you and also the enemy.

 

 

3) Crashing into asteroids will sometimes deal 1 damage, but not always. Better avoid them if on low crew, otherwise just smash them.

 

 

4) Any spaceship traveling between two ends of a Wormhole assumes the form of a beam of light, and is invulnerable for the duration of this effect. It also cannot attack while in this state.

 

 

5) Combat is always to the death: there isn’t a way to escape a started fight that I know of.

 

 

6) Ramming enemy ships will not deal damage.

 

 

7) Knowing what weapons the enemy has is very important to decide what strategy to use. You will become more experienced about this as you fight many battles.

 

 

8) Avoid fights if possible by simply evading a pursuing enemy ship. Fights actually result in very poor money gain most of the time, and give no additional rewards at all. There are a few exceptions but are quest-related.

 

 

9) Some weapons such as the Super Nuclear Missile will explode on mouse-click release and just continue traveling while mouse is kepth pressed down. If some weapon keeps exploding for no reason, maybe this is why.

 

 

10) If your Flagship (the Vindicator) is destroyed in combat, then youget a game over, but if any other Fleet ship is killed, you will just select the next one and continue the fight.
