Hello everyone! I’m Trey here to share some tips and tricks to use
when playing Hardspace: Shipbreaker our industrial sci-fi, zero-g, spaceship salvaging game. But first, on behalf of the Dev Team
and our friends at Focus I’d like to personally thank all of you Cutters out there,
from all over the world that have joined us in our journey
through Early Access on Steam. We’ve been listening and we’re already
talking about your feedback your ideas and your suggestions.
You are already helping us make the game better and we’ve only just begun. So again, thank you! [robotic voice] The LYNX Corporation is also very grateful for your “free” feedback and ideas. [Trey] Ok, in this video we have 10 important tips and tricks for all of you Cutters out there to help you keep your credits high and your death counts low. #1 Learn the Grapple The Grapple tool is vital for moving heavy
and dangerous objects that are floating in space.
The pull function can bring light objects towards you or
bring yourself towards objects that are far heavier than you are. Careful, though. If you pull too fast, bad things can happen! Also, when you’re trying to pull fragile components out of tight spaces you can rotate grappled objects, by rotating yourself. #2 Practice the Cutter Remember the old adage: measure twice, cut once… because in Shipbreaker, sometimes you only get one shot! The powerful Splitsaw head mount for your cutting tool can quickly slice through large walls with its searing hot laser but it can also damage valuable components
and accidentally sever fuel lines hidden behind those walls.
Your Splitsaw can make both horizontal and vertical cuts and you always have the option to switch to the Stinger head mount when you’re looking for more precision. #3 Use Your Hands Your hands are vital tools when navigating zero-g environments. Your magnetic gloves can be used to grab
and hold onto metal objects and walls. Use them to stabilize your aim or cushion yourself from high velocity impacts. Hands can also be used to carefully move
and manipulate objects around in the environment and come in handy when you’re trying not to get sucked out of an airlock #4 Tethers Tethers are an advanced upgrade feature for your Grapple tool that pull objects together once they’re activated. Larger objects will pull smaller objects towards them while tethered objects of similar mass, will pull themselves together. Using multiple tethers increases the strength of the pull so if you stack enough tethers together,
all pulling in the same direction you can move almost anything! Refilling your tethers does cost precious credits though so use them wisely, especially early in the Campaign.
#5 Atmospheric Regulation You will encounter some areas in ships that are still pressurized and exposing them to a vacuum leads to a decompression event. The escaping oxygen hurls all loose objects towards the breach and often results in an explosive chain reaction. The safest way to depressurize a room is to find
an atmosphere regulator and shut it off. If that’s not an option, try to find a safe spot
to decompress the room yourself.
If you’re feeling creative, sometimes you can even
use decompression events to your advantage. #6 Power and Electricity A ship’s power is controlled by a power cell or a generator depending on the class of ship. Always take this into account when salvaging
because once you remove a ship’s power source many of its systems will begin to malfunction or shut down completely. Be careful when removing power sources. Like reactors, power sources become unstable
as soon as they are removed from their casing and can damage nearby objects and overcharge
any electronic equipment they come in contact with. #7 Fuel and Fire Fuel pipes are safe to cut if you find a way
to remove the fuel inside first. If you find the correct valve you can expel the fuel manually or if you can’t, there’s always the option to perform some controlled demolitions to flush it out yourself. Use caution when making your cuts near ruptured fuel lines. Fuel leaks often create deadly gas clouds that are easily ignited. #8 Be Cool Coolant pipes and tanks can flash-freeze walls and break fragile objects.
Frozen surfaces can easily be shattered with enough force making coolant tanks a great way to make large holes
without the risk of setting everything on fire. In a pinch, seasoned Cutters have also been known to use Coolant sprays to extinguish fires. #9 Picking the Right Ship There are multiple ship classes with varying roles all with different shapes, sizes, and configurations.
The right ship can net you a bigger bonus if you know what you’re looking for. If you require furniture to complete your next Certification small transport ships usually have a good number
of passenger seats that you can salvage. If you’re hunting for metal however large industrial cargo ships might be your best bet. #10 Certifications and Loadouts Completing Work Orders is the best way
to increase your Certification Level which gives you access to new ship types,
as well as new tools and upgrades.
While it is always a good idea to salvage the entire ship
to maximize your credit return even if it takes multiple shifts to do so there may be times when you only need an object or 2
to complete your next Certification and unlock that new upgrade you’ve been waiting for. You always have the option to get what you need from a ship and then end the shift early to purchase your Upgrades right away. But be careful, LYNX doesn’t like it when you waste precious resources and will likely dock your pay to discourage
this type of behaviour in the future. Thanks for taking the time to check out this video. If you’d like to find out more about Hardspace: Shipbreaker you can join our community on our official Discord channel. Until next time, stay safe out there Cutters!.
