Tips for Avoiding Battles with Sentries
There’s a way out of sentinel battles:
- If you destroy sentinel starships enough, eventually a freighter shows up. Destroy that and combat ends, and you’re rewarded with an item you can use to find something nice on a dissonant world.
- You can alternatively land on a station/anomaly/your freighter and teleport to another system.
- Emergency Warp Drive.
- Land on a planet and break combat that way by either finding caves, buildings, using the boost jump to outrun them, digging a hole, etc. Cloaking device helps loads with this.
- Land, and kill sentinels on foot until Wave 5. This gives you a map to find a sentinel pillar which can have some goodies in it.
- If you’re lucky enough to find a manufacturing plant, blow the door with your starship, land, run in and solve the puzzle to immediately drop combat with sentinels.
