Sector 5

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 236

There is only one beacon I can jump to so I go there.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 237
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 237

It's an automated ship which will warn the fleet if it can power up its FTL drive.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 238
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 238

I aim for the piloting system

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 239
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 239

but my shields get hit so I try to repair them as quickly as possible.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 240
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 240

My door system is hit and on fire, I sent 3 into the shields to finish it quickly

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 241
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 241

But they get hit again. Meanwhile I aimed for the piloting system, but my weapons get hit before I was able to shoot.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 242
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 242

My shields are still damaged and the fire in the door system is out of control, I had to send the guy in the medbay and I use the boarding crew to help out on the ship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 243
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 243

Realizing I can't win this fight

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 244
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 244

I escape, this can be useful because you sometimes encounter enemies which you are not able to beat.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 245
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 245

I pick the blue option

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 246
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 246

and can avoid a fight.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 247
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 247

I now work on the ship to repair everything.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 248
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 248

After repairing the door system and healing everyone

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 249
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 249

I jump to the store.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 250
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 250

I buy a scrap recovery arm and continue my journey.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 251
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 251

The next beacon reveals a fight.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 252
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 252

He will not be able to pierce my shields, but the anti-personnal drone will make the boarding process difficult. On top of that are the upgraded doors, meaning my boarding crew could get trapped inside.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 253
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 253

I attack the drone control first, but it seems like it can take a few hits without being fully disabled.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 254
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 254

I fire at the piloting system and the human inside takes a lot of damage, especially with the fire.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 255
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 255

The repair drone helps him, so I focus the doors next.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 256
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 256

Unfortunately, they are charging their FTL drive and I make the mistake

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 257
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 257

of trying to board them nonetheless.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 258
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 258

I can call them back in time due to the teleporter lvl 2, but

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 259
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 259

the ship gets away.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 260
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 260

And so I make my way to the next beacon.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 261
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 261

I hire them to delay the rebels so I can explore 2 more beacons. 14 scrap is a pretty low cost.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 262
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 262

What I did now is fighting them instead of venting them off completely to increase the fighting level of my crew members.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 263
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 263

I finish them off in the medbay

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 264
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 264

and send them back again to their stations.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 265
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 265

The next beacon has an automated scout.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 266
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 266

I shoot at his weapons

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 267
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 267

but I miss every shot.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 268
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 268

I hit them at the 2nd time and can disabled both of his weapons, meaning that the drone can't pierce through my shield.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 269
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 269

I keep on shooting at their weapons and then switch to the piloting system because it evades a lot of my shots.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 270
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 270

After having dealt with his weapons and piloting system, I go for the shields because getting through them is difficult.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 271
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 271

I defeat him after a while.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 272
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 272

The next beacon has another scout.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 273
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 273

It has no shields, but an Ion weapon and a Burst Laser III, meaning it will shoot 5 lasers at me.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 274
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 274

I am able to destroy its weapons in time before it can shoot me with the Burst Laser III.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 275
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 275

Keeping its weapons disabled should be easy, especially with no shields to break through.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 276
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 276

Next beacon. They offer me to sell my drone parts for scrap

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 277
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 277

so I sell 3.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 278
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 278

I don't risk it because the last time I fought against an automated scout with 2 shields didn't work out so well.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 279
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 279

The next beacon has an asteroid field, but 2 shields are pretty decent against one.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 280
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 280

His weapons are very strong, 2 Burst Laser II and a beam weapon, meaning he shoots 6 lasers followed up by a beam.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 281
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 281

I autofire the piloting system with the Ion Stunner because it will disable one shield, it doesn't matter where I hit. I then attack the weapons with my Burst Laser II.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 282
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 282

I am able to damage its weapons, but I take a lot of damage on my weapons and piloting system.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 283
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 283

I get hit a second time, but it's only the medbay.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 284
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 284

I could've used my doors to remove the oxygen from the medbay, resulting in putting out the fire quickly, but I sent my crew in instead. This is a mistake on my part, but works too.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 285
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 285

After finally being able to disabling both of its lasers,

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 286
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 286

I can destroy him without taking further damage.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 287
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 287

I jump to the next location and aid the civilian ship.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 288
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 288

The auto-scout has no shields, but a cloaking system, a missile launcher and a hull laser. The laser won't be a big of a deal, but the missiles will do a lot of damage.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 289
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 289

After disabling the missile launcher,

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 290
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 290

I try to destroy the cloaking system.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 291
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 291

It cloaks in time and avoids my bullets.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 292
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 292

I shoot at the weapons again after the cloak was over to ensure that the missiles stay disabled.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 293
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 293

After the 3rd cloak I'm finally able to finish him off.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 294
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 294

I was a bit too slow and ended up fighting against an Elite Fighter of the rebels.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 295
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 295

They board my ship so I suffocate them. Meanwhile I focus on their weapons to minimize the damage I will take since he has a lot of weapons.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 296
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 296

They teleport their boarding crew back because it was low on health while I keep shooting at their weapons.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 297
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 297

I keep firing on their weapons, but my oxygen system got hit.

Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 298
Faster Than Light Walkthrough - Faster Than-Light 298

My FTL drive is finally charged so I go to the next sector.
