The Argonaut is a cheap but fragile freighter with its health consisting mainly of shields.

   

Description

The Argonaut is the third tier trading ship, of eight total. It usually is obtained after the Tempura. This ship has more health than then Wyrm and Tempura. Due to the low health, Aliens and Pirates are easily able to obliterate it, the latter more so. It also has the recognizable T-shaped window in front of the ship.

Interior

The Argonaut's interior is very detailed. The entrance leads to a small conveyor belt area, which itself is next to a small room with a bed, appliances, and some drawers. Above the bed are the pilot's seat and a small neon blue screen.

Advantages

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

Disadvantages

  • Low health.
  • 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.
  • Always check your trade route, there could be a pirate waiting for you anywhere.

Trivia

  • The Argonauts were a group of heroes in Greek mythology.
  • Recently had a remodel.
  • This can give you a profit of 675 if you get a full cargo of silicate at a 5 price and sell at Mega Base.
  • Received a buff in .61e4 that doubled hull and shields and gave the ship some damage resistance.
