How have I not given bounty hunting a try before!

Postby RogueZephyr » Sun Dec 31, 2017 10:55 pm

I can't believe how much you can make off of blowing up naughty people. I'm making as much, if not more than I ever did doing trading missions and I'm not getting bored whilst doing so.

BH is a blast!!

(hehehe)

Seriously though, BH is still one of my favorite activities in the game, and is WAY better in wings of friends with voice comms! Highly recommended!

I love my home system. The station I call port is orbiting one of two ringed planets, jumping to the other one for the 2 haz sites takes minutes.

As a relatively green Commander myself, I've found BH, especially in relation to CG's to be very lucrative. Not only are you making some decent money, but it's always more practice into controlling your ship, learning new strategies and how to fine tune and adjust things. It's also a ton of fun.

Don't skimp out on other sources though. Get a deep system scanner and scan each system you jump to, and also check the missions boards. Sometimes you'll find some ridiculously rewarding missions for something simple such as salvage jobs.

And of course, if you've no particular loyalties and don't mind getting your hands dirty, there are often 'wet work' jobs for taking out rival operations between factions that can also pay pretty well.

When in Res, what strategy are you using? Hunt out any wanted and blast away?

Hang with the local security and wait for them to pick on someone, then jump in when shields go down and steal the bounty from them?

Head to the RES carrying cargo in the hold to attract the desired attention?

I tend to hang with the security ships, they are green on my radar so I can easily see who is security and who is possible prey. Wait for the security ships to peel back the shields and open fire.

Combat scares me .. I must return to the Training for a while, but now I have engineered my ASPx for increased jump range I am heading out on a road trip that could take me months.
