Description

  • More health than the Tempura.
  • The small figure on the Minimap makes you less likely to be noticed by Pirates.

  • Low turn speed.
  • High cost.
  • Pirates find Freighters to be easy targets and cheap ways to make money.
  • Docks very slowly.
  • Low hull compared to shield.

Safety

  • Make sure to trade in a Faction that is in no wars and has strong allies. If there are none, go to a new server. If all servers have wars, try your best to be safe.
  • Go to the Mega Base when it is safe. Always check your route if you're in a war, there might be a pirate waiting for you.
  • Check how far away the closest Alien is and where it is heading to.
