|Faction 8 starter ship|
Faction 8 is one of the 7 playable factions in the game. Often confused with, and referred to as Faction 1, but the two are distinct factions in the game's files. Like Faction 1, their default color scheme is blue and light grey.
There are many different ways to play this faction. A common strategy for new players is just using this faction to experiment with the different weapons. Overwhelming enemies with this faction's Flak Cannon is a good strategy. Unlike most of the other factions there is no easy set strategy to follow. The multitude of weapons for this faction makes many different strategies possible. An example of a useable strategy is to just overwhelm your enemies with drones. Another example is a fast ship armed with Proton Swords. Most people use this faction just for the diversity of firepower you can have.
