Freelancer Cheats, Tricks

Freelancer is a space trading and combat simulation video game developed by Digital Anvil and published by Microsoft Game Studios. It is a chronological sequel to Digital Anvil's Starlancer, a combat flight simulator released in 2000. The game was initially announced by Chris Roberts in 1999, and following many production schedule mishaps and a buyout of Digital Anvil by Microsoft, it was eventually released in March 2003.

Finding secret bases and jump holes:
When you are looking for hidden jump holes to other systems, turn on your
Nav Map, then select the "Show Patrols" map. The lines that appear show
popular paths that the AI ships use. Almost any path that stretches out
beyond the normal trade-lane traffic of a star system will lead to a
hidden starport or even a hidden jump hole. Fly out to where the line
leads to and turn on the "Solars" option on your targeting computer.
You will usually find a place of interest. However, in places with reduced
sensor ranges you will probably have to rely on visually looking for
something. Also, to find all the paths, make sure to look at the
"neutral", "hostile" and "friendly" paths in the patrol paths map.
Be wary of stumbling upon an enemy's base.

Easier battles:
For slightly easier battles when attacking, select a hostile ship as your
target then ignore that ship. Focus instead on the other hostiles but do
not select them as a target. Even though they are not selected you will
still be given the blindfire marker (the crosshair you aim with), although
it will be smaller. Sometimes an untargeted hostile will just sit there,
waiting to be shot. Other times, it will remain on a straight course
and will not maneuver too much. The AI will eventually catch on to you
and will alter its techniques or will send in more ships. Also, you
will not be able to use missiles like this.
