Tachyon: The Fringe Cheats For PC

  1. Infinite Afterburner Speed

    Boost speed to maxiumium using the afterburner, then hold down 'Q' (the slide key) then let go of the afterburner to continue in the same direction at the same speed without draining power. Note: This disrupts the game flow, as many missions can easily be accomplished without fighting.

  2. Instant Recharge on Lasers + Torpedoes

    (This cheat is really only useful when flying GalSpan).

    Torpedoes are great, but they take a really long time to recharge. Same for the Deimos Heavy Laser.

    To bypass this, just hit the ''pause'' key. (Literally... Pause/Break above the arrow keys.) Everything will stop, but your torpedoes and lasers will recharge. Note: This is not the Laser Reserves, but the waiting time until they can fire again.

  3. Big bucks fast

    When using the RAGTAG cheat, before launching, sell the 4 most expensive ships (IE all but Orion) and when you hit back, they'll reappear, but you'll still have the money from selling them.
