- Non-veterans are armed simply with six Small Pulse Cannons. They're rather slow moving and shouldn't be a threat.
- Veterans are armed with six Small Missile Launchers and a Quantum Detonator. In addition, they have an Afterburner.
- When facing an Afterburner-equipped foe it's advised to have at least one of or more of the following: Small Missile Launcher, Tractor Beam, Afterburner or long-range TU-assisted weapons.
