Sector 3

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 114

Explore the sector as usual.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 115
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 115

Nothing at this location.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 116
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 116

I try to explore to as many beacons as I can while heading towards the Quest beacon.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 117
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 117

Intruders on deck aren't a big deal.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 118
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 118

Send someone to the door system to strengthen the doors

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 119
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 119

and kill them by suffocation.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 120
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 120

They made it through the door, but took a lot damage

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 121
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 121

Closing the doors and fighting them in the medbay gives them zero chances to kill your crew members.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 122
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 122

I repair the broken system (the shield system in my case)

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 123
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 123

and continue the journey.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 124
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 124

Notice that it has a beam drone and a beam weapon, meaning that there is no logical way to pierce 1 shield, so piercing 2 shields is out of question.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 125
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 125

Focusing on their piloting system and engines

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 126
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 126

Should be enough to stop the enemy. Remember to alternate between the piloting system and the engines to make sure that it won't be able to charge the FTL drive at all.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 127
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 127

I destroy the shields to speed up the process a bit.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 128
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 128

Shouldn't be big of a deal.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 129
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 129

Nothing at this location, this happens more often in nebulas in my experience.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 130
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 130

There is a plasma storm, so I could avoid him

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 131
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 131

but greedy as I am, I decide to fight him anyway.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 132
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 132

I shoot at his weapon system to stop their weapons and harm their crew members to be able to board.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 133
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 133

After the weapons are fully disabled, I prevent them from being repaired by teleporting in. Rockmen are very slow, but have high health so I have a good chance of killing this one of because the other one is still on his way.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 134
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 134

The other Rockman made it into the weapon system, but one is pretty low.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 135
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 135

After finishing off one of them, my human is quite low

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 136
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 136

So I send him out

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 137
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 137

for the Mantis to finish him off.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 138
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 138

I forgot to add that I have upgraded the teleporter, so if I supply it with more energy it reduces the cooldown allowing me to get out of sticky situations.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 139
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 139

I put some energy into the medbay to heal them

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 140
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 140

and then send the energy to the engines so I can jump.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 141
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 141

Nothing at this beacon

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 142
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 142

So I put the energy back into their respective systems. I upgraded the medbay once, but I don't supply it with more energy because there is no need for me to supply it with more energy when it is not in use.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 143
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 143

I visit the store

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 144
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 144

and purchase a Slug. These can be very useful for boarding, especially in Nebulas because they allow me to see enemies without sensors. Having more than one Slug is useless though.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 145
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 145

I buy some fuel again, no need to fix the hull since it is in good shape.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 146
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 146

I power up the new weapon Ion Stunner for the future.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 147
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 147

Now onto the quest.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 148
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 148

They have a Zoltan shield, it will not regenerate but blocks me from teleporting in.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 149
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 149

Firing both weapons as soon as possible will take out the shield. The enemy doesn't have the weaponry to pierce 2 shields though so I am on the safe side.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 150
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 150

I destroy their weapons

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 151
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 151

and fire another volley to deal some damage to the Rockman.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 152
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 152

After I stunned him with the Ion Stunner I teleport my boarding crew in.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 153
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 153

The Mantis has the upper hand while my human struggles due to Rockman's high health of 150.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 154
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 154

I let my Mantis do the job and move my human out while observing their health points very closely.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 155
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 155

I receive my reward

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 156
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 156

and heal them.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 157
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 157

Jumping to the next beacon

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 158
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 158

I offer them to lead them to their destination.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 159
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 159

Fortunately,

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 160
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 160

it is very close so I move their right away.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 161
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 161

They repair my hull

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 162
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 162

and reveal their store.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 163
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 163

I check how many crew members I currently have

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 164
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 164

and proceed to buy the Zoltan which gives the room he is in +1 power.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 165
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 165

I send him to the shields, the human manning the shields before is now manning the doors.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 166
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 166

Jumping to another location.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 167
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 167

I use this chance to take on another fight, so I pick the 1st option.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 168
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 168

They cannot deal hull damage, but the bombs will do great damage to my systems.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 169
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 169

I aim to destroy their medbay because it would prove to be a big problem while boarding.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 170
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 170

At this point, I am not going to board them for 2 reasons. 1) the teleporter is disabled by their Ion bombs and 2) it is charging their FTL drive, meaning that if I don't call them back before they jump they are lost forever.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 171
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 171

So I focus their piloting system

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 172
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 172

and they offer to surrender. I decline this offer because destroying a ship gives more scrap while offers can provide you with ressources like fuel, missiles and drone parts. I have enough, so I pass on that

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 173
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 173

and destroy him for a bit more scrap.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 174
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 174

There is nothing at this location

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 175
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 175

So I jump to the exit beacon.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 176
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 176

The route I took on the sector map leaves me with only one option so I jump to another engi controlled sector.
