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.)
