Need better starting ships

  • Greetings,


    I've come from the Discovery Freelancer game to try something new and fresh, so I downloaded Freelancer Crossfire and gave it a whirl. The single player campaign is very creative and engaging. However, the multiplayer component is very difficult for me to get anywhere in. I start out in the most basic ship in the game and, no matter what mission I accept, even at the lowest difficulty levels, I keep getting my butt handed to me every time. In Discovery Freelancer, the starting ship tended to be much more robust.


    Any possibility I would be able to choose a better ship or acquire far more startup capital easily? $150,000 credits is simply too low to get into a ship worthy of taking some of the difficulty curve off. Much appreciated. :)

  • Try trading around New York first until you can get some money to buy the Black Eagle at Planet Blood in Custodian. Then go to Death Valley and loot the Ragnarok Gunboat wreck for extra starting credits. You might need evasion skills for the latter.

    The rumble of the engines and the trundle of the wheels,
    Through hell and horror trudge and yet their spirits never yield.
    Will they sing of these forsaken pawns of war?"

  • hi Reznor

    welvome mate

    :) :) the best ship to get at the start is the Starflier

    fast agile and with it you can fly staight to death valkey. after a bit of practice and raid the ragnarock wreck fly back out and cash in the chip you tractor in after shooting the wreck gito a base and cash in, can be anything from about 6 +mill to 11+milk


    when you have the cash you go and get the best ship you can buy with those quick millions. and you are off to a good start :) :)


    good flying and good luck in CF

    see you in space mate :) :)
