This is a list of some basic strategies in Starblast.io. There are no perfect strategies or techniques, but learning these basic moves can help you get started. Feel free to add your own to this list!
The "Frag" Strategy[edit | edit source]
This strategy is one that will do one thing only, get you to the top of the leader board in no time at all. This is done well by four ships: the Side Interceptor, Side Fighter, Pulse Fighter and Shadow X-1 (note: Y-Defender can be used but requires more skill). The amount of damage these four ships can pump out quickly makes them ideal for taking out ships. They are small and lower tier, which means they are easier to upgrade, very hard to hit by bigger ships with pulses, and can easily out maneuver anything besides a Fly. With this technique, I have easily gotten over 50 frags using this strategy. (Note: Don't abuse this strategy, it can make the game unenjoyable.)
The All-Around Strategy[edit | edit source]
This is a simple strategy, recommended for beginners. Whenever the upgrades are unlocked, upgrade all of your available stats. This way your ship will have no weakness in terms of stats. One thing you have to keep in mind when using this strategy is that it will take longer to upgrade your ship, since you upgrade your stats first. Of course, you can skip some upgrades like the Speed and Agility stats if you have the skill to juke other players. If you are feeling uncertain, just upgrade your stats, and you have nothing to worry about. (Except for other enemies that are teaming with other ships) Unless you have the skill, you should probably use this strategy until you get better, then you can make your own favorite strategy!
"Ammo" Strategy[edit | edit source]
This a strategy based mainly on mining. All you do for many ships, (the later ones you can if you want) is only upgrade the weapon regen speed. Also, maxing damage with regen speed is a good way to go. This way you can shoot as much and as fast as possible to take out more rocks and upgrade your ship.
