wow, it's been a while...

- i remember that i normally kill the theifbot with flash missiles (he's not completely immune). i fuckin hate that dirty theif!! DIE!@!!@!

- you can often use guided missiles to unlock secret passageways by triggering the BACK sides of secret doors. I use this to get the helix (i think) and then then the guass gun early on in the game.

- don't use the helix unless you have TONS of energy to burn or are faced with a crap load of annoying fast moving small enemies - or the theif. DIE THEIF!@!

- just as with Descent 1, when faced with lava shoot at the lava not the bots, the lava splash damage will do a LOT more damage than your weeapons will. also be careful not to kill yourself with the splash.

- use gauss or vulcan to kill those 4 armed scrapey scary guys. coz if you shoot them with energy based weapons they will shoot homing plasma at you.

- use the afterburner, zooming around is fun.

- try to time the shots of the slower shooting bots. they can only shoot so fast and if you fake a move just before they shoot - then they will try to lead their shot and will totally miss you (if you actaully did fake that is)

- use your mines when panicing and retreating into a corner so you arn't followed. smart mines are totally awesome. even if you just simply drop them then turn araound and shoot them to release the homing shots.

Lasers good.
Quad level 6 lasers are the most effective energy weapon in D2.

d2 is all about the plasma. even though its a toned down piece of crap compared to the d1 version, its still very usable for newer pilots without alot of effort and learning involved.

I always thought the D2 plasma was roughly equivalent to D1 plasma. It was always the spread that got powernerfed between the games for me.

I use spreadfire/plasma and gauss a ton in sp mainly because i figured a tap of gauss was worth more then a long shower of vulcan.

Also never forget you're lasers, those things kill.

A shame that Megas and Fusion were toned down. That plain sucks. Spread was as weak as always, but the Helix probably became the most powerful primary weapon.
