Easter egg for x4 or an error? - Neither!

Post by ColManiac » Mon, 22. Oct 18, 11:09

Hi, I had a message come up on the loading screen in x3 rebirth, I get the usual tips and info pop up. But yesterday a tip popped up saying I could place bombs around the engines shield arrays jumpdrive to disable a ship prior to boarding. I figure you cannot leave the ship in x3 except to walk around the interior of my ship or to walk around stations and non hostile ships. So I thinks it's an Easter egg for x4, or if I'm wrong then where do I get the bombs to place on ships to disable them?

There is a particular specialised drone called the Traitor that you can buy for the Skunk and fly remotely that places limpet mines on targets.

(BTW, there is no X3 in X Rebirth. X3 includes X3: Reunion, X3TC or X3AP.)

Lol, you learn something new every dal :D , I tried the traitor drone and it's much quicker disabling a ship than using my ship shooting each module and stripping the hull down for a tram to move in :). Though not very effective against aggressive enemy ships.

Well, the pacifier for aggressive ships is another item with a "drone" in it's name, thought it doesn't quite go into the Skunk's drone bay.
