Always Exploit Weaknesses
The ship and ground combat are the highlights of Halcyon 6. As you progress further in the game, you’ll find that enemy units will have more and more health, and it will become increasingly difficult to take them down with your usual shooting tactics. This is where weaknesses come into play. Make sure to familiarize yourself with every ability that your officers have, and learn what weaknesses they can inflict onto your enemies. Weaknesses can then be exploited by different attacks. For instance, your tactical officer might have an attack that inflicts Engines Down, and you can then use your engineer officer to use an attack that exploits that particular weakness for extra damage.
Don’t just look at the damage output value next to each of your attacks. It is a lot more efficient to exploit weaknesses, and it’s advisable too, as you don’t want your space battles to get dragged out for too long.
