what I should use through the game

Postby helenharry » Wed Jan 09, 2019 7:47 am

I'm sort of new to FTL, as I've only unlocked 4 ships (Kestrel and Engi Cruisers A and B) and I'm thinking about what to get in the game. I'm playing with the standard Kestrel, in Sector 3, with Level 2 shields, Level 3 Engines, Level 1 Medbay/Oxygen, level 4 Weapons, Level 1 pilot, and level 2 sensors/doors. Also I have 2 humans and a rockman, and a Burst Laser 2 and Breach Bomb 2. Please help what I should use through the game, and remember, Burst Laser 2 is better than 3!

When you say "level 2 shields" do you mean 2 power in shields so you only have 1 shield bubble, or 4 power so you have 2 shiled bubbles?

If you have 2 power, then your next 50 scrap should be invested to get you 4 power in shields. In fact, I make that the first 50 scrap I spend in most games.

if you have 4 power, then your next ... uh whatever scrap should go into level 4 engines, then your next scrap should go into level 5 engines, and then your next scrap should go into the 3rd shield (level 6).

Then start thinking about buying bombs and scanners :)
