How to deal with infected?

Post by RagedDrew » Wed Sep 16, 2015 3:51 pm

How do we deal with infected? Our area is now at 72% infected, how do we lower this?

Has anyone ever blowed one carrier up?

The S.M.S. Roamer was throwing to nukes in the fun, emptied 20 missile Pods and it was still laughing about us.

btw. i like the look of the infected :P

Watched a video Venerati posted about fighting them and learned quite a bit.
Possible spoilers, highlight below to read.

Video is called "Pulsar: Lost colony, Infected purge"
The Infected have no shields, energy weapons are ineffective against them.
Infected sectors do continuous damage to ships, avoid if possible.
If the spore torpedoes (Sporepedoes?) get past the shields, they board the ship as bugs and attack, keep shields up (over 50%) at all times.


We encountered the Infected after playing a few hours and feeling pretty confident in our abilities.
The crew of the U.S.S. Hammer was taught a valuable lesson in humility.

Yes, not really interested in fighting them with their 9000 hulls, I just want to know how to lower the infected percentage. Like I said 73% of our solar system is infected.

I am not sure about lowering the spread of the infection but I have been on a ship that's killed 3 carriers back to back and all that has dropped was scrap.
