    Surviving fights

    Asteroids and space stations are invulnerable. It doesn't matter what you hit them with, they'll just soak it all up. Try using spcae stations and asteroid fields as cover to hide from the lasers until your shields restore themselves.

    Easy Money

    for no-hassle money, just head for the Colorado system.

    The asteroid field between the New York jump gate and Pueblo station is classed as a mineable zone. Fly in there, park your ship in an empty patch of space, and start shooting all the small rocks that come by.

    Every so often, one of the asteroids you blow up will drop a chunk of silver. Tractor it aboard, and you have silver that you never paid for.

    It's best to use a single weapon for this. if you have more than one weapon on your ship, then different projectiles travel at different speeds, which means you may blow up a rock, and then blow up the silver that comes out of it as well, which is very annoying.

    having procured as much silver as you want, sell it at a MASSIVE profit. Early on in the game, the best place to sell silver is California Minor. Later on, if you have the time, you should sell it in New Tokyo for more than 1,000 credits per unit.

    Be warned that the silver is rare, and you'll spend a lot of time not getting anything from it, but if your patient enough, it does work, and you make big bucks.

    This technique works with any asteroid field classed as a mineable zone. You can get silver, copper, water, and all sorts.

    Hidden System

    Hidden System

    This hint should only be attempted by high level pilots. First, fly to the Ommicron Gamma system. This system is completely controlled by the Corsairs, and contains their home planet, so be wary.
    First enter omega 3 by whatever system is available first - cambridge or omega 7.
    once in omega 3 find the omega 5 jump hole in sector 7D.
    in omega 5 find the omega 41 jump hole in sector 5E.
    in omega 41 there will be a jump hole titled "Unknown Jumphole" in sector 2f go through it.

    when in the unknown system there are two planets.
    1)Primus in sector 5C (this is controlled by monkeys)
    2)Gammu in sector 6F (this is controlled by robots)

    Cheap ship

    The "Anubis" class Order Very Heavy Fighter is easily one of the hardest vehicles in the game, and the best bit is that its DIRT CHEAP!

    To get it, just follow the game storyline. During the mission which will make you Level 18, you will use a jump hole, and come face to face with the Rheinland flagship, which you have zero hope of beating, really. lucky for you, another ship decloaks and orders you to get aboard. this ship is the Order flagship, the Osiris.

    On board the Osiris, you can buy Order equipment, including the Anubis fighter, which is far and away the best ship class you can get until you are level 24, and it only costs 1,100 credits.

    There are better ships, but you need to be level 24 to get those.

    At the end of the game you can do what ever you want but i suggest you get to a really high level then gain a good rep towards corsairs then go to planet create in omicron gamma system and buy the best ship in the game the TITAN. You can have any weapons you want on it. I found it lots of fun once i got it.

    Alaska Jump Gate

    When u go to zone 21, IF U HAVE THE INVINCIBILITY CHEAT u require it to get thru the mine field, when u get to the Alaska jump gate and attempt to dock it will say "Docking is denied" because it is a place where there is a prison box thing like sugar land but it has more deadly villains so u cant dock to go there

    Trading Tips

    Ok here is a few tips and trade routes that really work...
    when u are trading something always have in mind that u always carry something to sell along the way... u can see that from this cool trade root below. you can use that trade root from the start and it will earn you big profit.
    buy boron on Manhattan and sell it on shefield station, then you buy light arms from shefield station and sell it on new London and buy luxury food on new London and sell it on Manhattan, and then all over again.
    one run gains you aprox 140000 credits.
    and there is a second trade root that u can go from the start to gain some starting cash. buy light arms in Detroit munitions and sell them in battleship Missouri, and then buy h fuel on Missouri and sell it on Detroit munitions. this trade root will gain you aprox 6000 if u have the rhino. the first trade root will gain you 140000 if u have the bretoinian cargo ship.

    The Criminal Way of Making Money

    Become friendly with the outcasts. Buy a large freighter. Fly to Sigma 13 and look around in the eastern part of it u will find an outcast base - i forgot its name:{ buy lots of artifacts there. u will be able to buy them at around 200-300 credits each. once u have a full load fly to Manhattan and sell them at planet Manhattan. u can sell them there for 1200 credits. with a large freighter u can make around 100,000 credits in one trip. u only have to travel across about 5 or 6 systems. u will go up lots of levels in a short time. yay;)

    Another Hidden System

    f and when you find the Outcast home world in if I remember right Omicron Alpha, there is a unknown jump hole and a whole bunch of abandoned ships in the northern part of the green gas cloud that you should end up in no matter what you do. I cant give you the sector its in but you should find it really easy. but i wouldn't go in unless you are a really high-level pilot and have a Titan that's armed to its full potential. inside there's nothing but a highly radioactive star and a crap load of nomads. I have been searching the entire thing for a long time and have still yet to find anything of interest. but on the bright side the scenery is way cool.

    Good Trade Route!

    First you buy boron (120 pr) on Pittsburgh, NY. Then you go to the leads system and sell it at LD14 (960 pr) on the way back land on New London, and buy luxury food (200 pr) and go to Manhattan, NY. sell it there (1200 pr)

    Nomad Jump Hole

    n the Omicron gamma system sector 2f there is a hidden jump hole. The jump hole takes you out of the universe to some else I not exactally sure where but that system you go to is controlled by nomads which came as a bit of a shock to me at first. When I destroyed some of the nomads I was able to use their weapons. THIS SHOULD ONLY BA ATTEMPTED BY EXTREMELY HIGH LEVEL PILOTS (LEVEL 45 AT LEAST).

    Faster Torpedoes

    When doing any missions where you have to use torpedoes, to make them move faster and lessen the chance that they get hit, just turn on your afterburner, fire the torpedo/s and then go back to normal speed and the torpedo/s will hit the target much faster.

    Making a lot of money easily

    First you have to buy a good reputation towards Corsairs: you could find a hacker in Omega 7. Then reach Omicron Gamma (to find the jumpgate use the trick of the "Patrols Lines"). Land on planet Crete and take a load of artifacts. Fly to planet New Berlin, flying trough Omicron Theta, Sigma 17 and Sigma 13 (the Omicron Theta's jumpgate is in the sector 3d; for the others use the "Patrols Lines" trick). Sell all the artifacts on planet New Berlin and take a load of light arms. Return to Omicron Gamma and sell the light arms on Tripoli Shipyard. It's really a gold route!!

    Loads of cash FAST

    Here's the deal guys:

    1. go to 'Planet Kyushu'in the Kyushu System with a 'Humpback'Ship or another Cargo ship.
    2. Buy as much 'Niobium' (250 with Humpback - roughly $100.000 at $415 each)
    3. Fly to 'Leipzig Station' in the 'Dresden' System (Note - you must have defeated the nomads to get to Dresden)
    4. At Leipsig Station sell al the Niobium for $1600 each making a profit of roughly $300.000!!!

    The only bad part is that it takes quite a while to get from Kyushu to Leipzig, but in my opinion it is well worth the trip. Also the trip is faster if you take some 'Wormholes' or whatever they are called. there are only 2 which i know of that will make your trip faster.

    No wait for Jump Gates

    When you try to enter a jump gate and someone else is in front of you, just enter a formation with the person heading in and there is no line, although you do lose the formation and slide sideways right before going in it works.

    Cool Guns, and Lv up

    message: Once you have killed the "nomads" and finished the game (sort of). Go to "sigmar 13" (its a border world) check your nav map and you should see some small red "X"s these are abandoned ships. shoot them with your weakest weapon and you will get up a level and get a cool Lv10 gun. don't shoot them with a powerful weapon or youll destroy them. Don't worry about your rep the ships don't belong to any one.

    Pirate Base (demo)

    There is a pirate base located in the badlands in the New York Sector. Here's a way to slim down your search.

    Take the Norfolk Shipyard>>Texas Jumpgate route to the Texas Jumpgate. From there, head into the Badlands (watch out for the Outcasts that spawn here) Now, keep your search confined to the areas of E6 and E7.

    Now, keep the "ALL" filter selected on your target list. When you get close enough to it "Buffalo Base" will appear in the list. Don't even attempt to go to it yet, get to the closest base you can and save.

    You will notice that under normal conditions the base is hostile (highlighted in red), and therefore you cannot dock with it. However, if you can manage to kill off 50+ Bounty Hunters/Liberty Navy/Liberty Police, you can slowly convert the base to allow you to dock...and enjoy the splendors within. :)

    (I recommend killing the bounty hunters, as you usually get 5 in a group, whereas the police and navy usually massacre you with huge numbers)

    Hidden Jump gate!

    This is a nifty little trick.
    First get the PerfOptions cheat on (at 0.00) then fly into ZONE 21, and search g5 for a jumpgate. I don't know if the nav map will find it so you will have to find it visually. I did.
    Note - the jumpgate is to the Alaska System, i don't know what is in the system because i have the trial version :(

    Earn Money

    If you have completed some part of the game and have the Dublin System opened (you have to have access to Battleship Hood) then you can earn money like breathe air.
    All you have to do is get a load of Customer Goods in Manhattan NY and then transport them to the Battleship Hood. Then you take a load of gold and go to New London (that's on the way back so don't worry). In New London you sell the gold and stuff your cargo with Luxury Food. The difference in price for the Luxury Food in New London and Manhattan is 1000$ so i think it is worth to deliver.

    Find Hidden jumps and bases

    When you are looking for hidden jump holes to other systems, turn on your Nav Map, then select the "Show Patrols" map. The lines that appear show popular paths that the AI ships use. Almost any path that stretches out beyond the normal trade-lane traffic of a star system will lead to a hidden starport or even a hidden jump hole. Fly out to where the line leads to and turn on the "Solars" option on your targeting computer. You will usually find a place of interest. However, in places with reduced sensor ranges you will probably have to rely on visually looking for something. Also, to find all the paths, make sure to look at the "neutral", "hostile" and "friendly" paths in the patrol paths map. Be wary of stumbling upon an enemy's base.

    Kill Junkers and Rogues

    Here's a dirty way to kill Junkers and Rogues. If you see a group of enemies flying past shoot at them. This may seem suicidal but it's not. As soon as they start to fire at you, put on the after-burners and fly as fast as you can towards a planet but don't use jump lanes. When you get near the planet take the after-burners off and start shooting at them. If they don't run away all the ships around the planet will start to shoot them and they'll go down like flies. This doesn't really get you anywhere but it's fun to watch them get picked off.
    Note: This works best when around New York

    Unknown System

    This should only be attempted if you have beaten the game, have good equipment, or do the difficulty cheat. First, go to Omicron Alpha. Once there, go to the Sinistre Cloud. Then, check around the middle of it or slightly upward from the two other jump holes, and your map should detect an unknown jump hole. If you dock with it, you'll find yourself in a system populated by Nomads. There really isn't anything else there, but once you go back to Omicron Alpha, most likely you'll find more Nomad ships. If you check your map, you'll see that destroyed Outcast ships are littered over the area. I haven't found anything on the ships, but i only checked a few
