Hardspace: Shipbreaker Cheats, Tips Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include why you should extract everything possible from a ship before moving on and why you should not cut costs.
Upgrade the Oxygen Tank
One of your first priorities in Hardspace: Shipbreaker is to upgrade the oxygen tank as doing so will mean you will have to buy fewer refills which means not wasting precious time and credits refilling it. It is important that upgrade your oxygen tank as soon as you are able to because at the beginning of the game your oxygen will run out very quickly.
Extract Everything from a Ship
Resist the temptation to just strip the most expensive parts of a ship and then leave it. As you progress in the game you will find it is better to methodically extract every piece of a ship. To begin with the extra rewards you receive may not seem like much but later in the game you will realize that it will benefit you more as it will enable you to grab even more rewards.
The worst thing you can do is rush, you may feel you need to get as many things done as quickly as possible in order to get your hands on the money to pay off debts and upgrade your tools but not being careful can cause all sorts of problems, such as causing an explosion by cutting through the wrong panel. It is far better to take things a little slower.
Although you are able to cut through pieces of the ship in order to get bits and parts to sale it is important that you are careful when doing so as cutting through something like a fuel tank could lead to an explosion that kills you. It is safer to keep an eye out for the designed points that indicate panels you can cut safely and focus on them.
Don't Cut Costs
Don't get into the trap of worrying about trying to pay off the massive debt hanging over your head and trying to pay it off as soon as possible by cutting costs. This is a mistake, it is far better to make the most amount of money you can on each ship and hit salvage goals, in order to get better ships to scrounge.
