hey all, what did you think of the mystery asteriod mission where you get te asteriods ship and then the large hidden asteriod base ? I've found it difficult to complete, I've played the game on medium difficulty and felt like changing it to easy for that mission.
IMO, the Arrow ist the Ship that "feels best", every time I fly an Arrow, I'm happy that it's the Arrow. I did this Mission by destroying most of the carrier's turrets before he got powered, so he had almost nothing to defend himself with, and then the Longbows got him down easily. Don't waste too much time on the carrier's escort fighters, go for the turrets, which won't fire at you until the carrier is powered, and when he is, you've got an enemy shield to hide in
I also recommend that you try out the glide function of the Arrow. Its a lot of fun and I used it in this mission to avoid fire from the escorts and still taking out turrets.
With the glideing and afterburner its even possible to make extreme hard turns. Avoiding enemy fire from the escorts or when they got a missile look on you I just love to give a quick burst and hide behind the carrier so that the missiles damage it instead of me.
I kill the carrier myself (nice to have that kill on my board ), just kill all the fighters first an then entering the hangar of the carrier and kill it from inside. Alt+m to match the speed of the carrier and have fun. From time to time get out of the hangar and kill the arriving asteroid kilrathi fighters, then go inside again and proceed killing the carrier (need some time of cause). Of cause you have to use the afterburner to leave the carrier with haste when you reduced it to 0!
