comment Why are my crew starstruck?
To be clear old weapons can stun as well as new, but again it's only in the Advanced Edition. Heavy Lasers feature a chance to stun (e.g.).

This answer is dated; I'm going to revisit it in the next few days.

comment What happens first, flat or % armor penetration?
@IbrahimApachi - Armor pen cannot take armor to negative; if armorpen > armor value, then it's simply treated as if the target has 0 armor. Armor Reduction, however, can take armor into the negatives (thus multiplying the damage done). This will rarely come up due to a number of factors: reduction is calculated first, reduction is rare, and armor tends to scale naturally on champions to a point beyond all sources of flat reduction.

comment Having real difficulty on the DNA (Biohazard) level in Jets'n'Guns
This is a problem I've found in gold. I am like 5 missions past the "final" ship, and I still can't afford to run it (upgrading to it just cuts too deeply into available funds). I swear the pre-gold version of the game wasn't like that. I do love that you buy and sell everything at cost - it allows experimentation. But the game just feels much more difficult than it used to.

comment Can you cross jump pads without getting launched?
@GnomeSlice - correct; I ran it as part of my testing and confirmed. It was only the Huntress that could do it; Mercenary and Miner were unable (unless I wasn't positining properly with the Miner, but I doubt it).
