Here's some tips to make moar monies/xp/rep/etc:

- Use one ship and one ship only.
If you field multiple ships in a battle, repair costs are going to sting.
Obviously also avoid using expensive ammo if you are in it for credits.

- Use the ship with the highest reward bonus.
Steam DLC ships have the highest bonus for their tier. Reward bonus scales the money/exp/loyalty/reputation you get.
If you don't have DLC ships, get a ship in the highest rank for its tier (that is, a 3, 6, 9, 12 ship)

- Gold rep boosters affect Contract reputation bonus as well.
This is especially useful for the harder, high rank contracts with long cooldowns, which generally reward a lot of rep.

Repair costs seem to cost the same for me 1 ship or 3. This is mostly in arcade but please dont bring 1 ship to regular you will lose its sometime and with 1 ship your useless once you die.

Is there a way to repair the damage on the next battle manually?

Desert Eagle seems to be pretty constant 140-150k credits per game, good for grinding dem credits if you bought the "middle" DLC from Steam.

Just put some Heavy Plasmas on that thing and go global stuff, the damage is hilarious with blue Heavy Plasmas and Overdrive on.
Just.. try not to turn with Overdrive on, it won't end well!

Just any T3 game basicly, though I only play Realistic.

The Deagle has pretty much the best Reward Bonus in the whole game atm :l

Does Realistic mode have more XP/money than Arcade?

I really wish more people played that mode.

1x Fighter 3x Frig for maximum faceroll with the biggest guns.

Entity can propably shed more light on the matter.
