Greetings Commanders,

A few days ago, I was part of an epic Thargoid battle. I wrote about it here and also added a couple of screenshots in a later post.

In those screenshots, you can see that during this battle, I killed quite a number of Thargoid Robot Fighters. The bounty for some of those was 50 Cr. For others it was only 5 Cr. And towards the end, there were a couple that were worth 55 Cr. I also killed three Thargoid Cruisers. Two of them were worth 250 Cr, the last one was 255 Cr.

What would account for those differences?
For the Thargons I could imagine the difference between active robot fighters and mere alien items, but I don't think that's it, because I've gotten 50 Cr bounties for dead robofighters before in interstellar space.
(The Thargoid battle was a reserve duty mission for the Galactic Navy, if that helps explain.)

A total of 55 ships were destroyed (plus one other item), .. Any insights on what other this other item might be?

Thanks.

Hello hoqllnq,

My Understanding is that In fighting usual Pirates , they seem to increase in bounty the more nefarious and killing they are.,, It is conceivable that a Thargoid's bounty increases because before you have defeated it , It has done something to raise it's bounty , for example kill another clean vessel or attacked a police or navy ship...

I have come to find out that the 'other items' are (or at least include) missiles that you destroy using weapons, i.e. not by ECM or by 'catching' it.
