How do I end an Alien Fregate?

In Sektor 5 I often encounter an alien fregate, which seems to interrupt the jump sequence. So far I cannot kill it, I attacked the shield projectors (shiny globes on top and sides) as well as the turret. What do I miss? there are 20 percent left... Help pls...

    Take out the drone generator first. If you don't do that, then you will never get rid of the shield drones. Then take out the drones, then take out the turrets.

    Make sure you have the cloak option (mk 3 is what I had) and have damage mods. If you have any drones of any kind, launch them.

    Use shield damaging weapons first, then switch to hull damage. Save your missiles for the support craft (like the drones)

    Oooo~ Thanks a lot for that Giraffasaur. Next time I see one blocking my jumps, I might have a chance. Instead of be curling up in a ball and sobbing at the loss of the last hour of gameplay.
    Hopefully it won't be on a map with random, and very painful, solar flares melting my face. Both blue beams of doom and inescapable red waves of heat.. harsh :(

    For Alien Frigate, you have to destroy specific part of the ship.
    For Alien Warship, you pretty much doomed.
    For Alien Gunship, simply attack from far and use clock if you're low on health.

    Or you know... Be stealthy. I activate my cloak then switch to my teleporter and get near. Do the hack and Dr Zoidberg away!

    You can't hack Okkar Frigates. You must be thinking of Okkar Corvettes.

    You can also cloak and hack the signal if you can find the antenna

    The okkar corvettes are fairly easy to kill once you know how. Their shields recharge fast, but some weapons like the fusion blaster can out do it (even more if you use devices that buff damage output). Combine this with a few plasma torpedoes or heavy missiles and the corvette dies really fast. Also, if you use a drone "highjacker" consumable you make the shields drone heal you instead while you destroy the covette shields and hull.

    Make sure you are constantly dodging the huge lightning beam laser ball blaster of death, as well.

    Made me giggle just a little bit. :blush:

    I used to dread Frigates, but i got 2 on my first successful run in 0.4. Frigates are somewhat easy to deal with if you carry some Arc-9000. Arcs will do massive damage to it and also cripple it's guns so it's almost helpless. You still have to deal with fighters and drones showing up but it's a lot easier then. The generators are not that sturdy, gatlings or fusion blasters quickly destroy them, the biggest hassle is locating them while dodging all the enemy fire. It's also quite helpful to have a tractor beam so you don't need to get inside to loot everything.
