NPC ships drop raw space loot. This loot ranges in quality from "Buzz Lightyear Tech" to exceptional pieces that are beyond the reach of the most dedicated shipwright. Raw space loot has all of the stats that crafted parts have, but also have a "Reverse engineering Level" tag as well.

Re-Engineering is the end game of creating a great starship. This is because you can extract the best aspects of different raw space loot and combine it into one new "Re'D" piece.

All NPC ships have the potential to drop space loot. Although opinions vary on where space loot is found, in general, higher tier space ships seem to drop higher level parts. It is more common to loot credits than loot, but loot that you don't want to keep can be sold to the chassis dealer for 1k X RE Level (except level 10 parts, and you don't want to sell those anyways).

Going up and crunching through some NPC fighters is a good way to get space xp, credits, and loot. As you gain knowledge of loot, you'll be able to seperate out good and great loot from stuff that you should just sell to the chassis dealer. Also, most shipwrights will buy junk lvl 1 and 2 loot for more than the NPC and will use it to roll for KSE discs.

Loot to keepEdit

Much of the loot that you get, as noted above, is only worthwhile selling back to the chassis dealer for credits. There is merit in keeping all your junk if you are going to reverse engineer it yourself, as you will need the junk to make up the extra parts in an RE session. However, if you are looking to keep only the good stuff, this guide will help you with what to sell to the dealer, and what to keep for future purposes (anything not listed here is not useful and you should sell it to the chassis dealer). Look out for loot that has one or more of the stats that match the guide.

Level 4 lootEdit

  • Look for these "brands" of capacitors for these stats:
    • Gallant A1 - low masses, low drains
    • Gallofree LT-22 - high regens
    • Corellian Tuned Mark II & Special BJN-825s - high pools
    • Qualdex Conservator Q3 - high regens, but LT-22s are usually better bets

    • Sienar Special Ion Booster
    • Using these boosters go for these stats:
      • Energy 1980

    • PreNerf Slayn & Korpil "Vortex" Mk3 Generation: 35k+
  • Shields: Hitpoints 2150+ (Nym’s Starmap gives Protect-o Net Shields good for this)
    • Mass under 17k / Drain under 2200 / Regen 14+
  • Weapons: There are only really two weapons you need to concern yourself with here for damage:
    • Sienar Flight Systems "Boltdriver" & Ionic Pulse Weapon
    • The Boltdriver is an Imperial-awarded weapon. It's always 1910.x-295x.x. (The Ionic Pulse Weapon can hit higher max damage numbers than the Boltdriver.)
    • The Ionic Pulse, awarded by Eyma on Kashyyyk is a lot more varied.
    • Drain under 2k / Mass under 15k / Vs Shields & Armor .600 + / EPS 24 and under / Refire .330 and lower
  • Armor: Armor 1400+ / Mass 7k and under (Again Bad Advice: 7k or less is uber rare, 14k or less is reasonable and still difficult to loot.)

Level 8 lootEdit

  • Engines: Nym’s Starmap Quest gives a level 8 engine called the Quantum Ion Drive that can reach 100+ speeds (Highest known raw speed was 110 maybe 111 which RE'd to 117 TS.)
    • "Removed due to bad advice"
    • YPR 70+ is nice but you really want the rare 71.5+ to get a RE engine with 75.0 ypr
    • Drain under 1450 / Mass under 25k
  • Weapons:
    • The Borstel Disruptor (and its twin cousin the Incom Tri-Cannon, a Rebel Tier 4 reward) is one of the very best weapons in game. This beauty is a reward for neutral pilots at Box 16. It has nearly unbeatable Damage and an EPS that will never be matched by anything else you craft or loot. Do not RE any Level 8 guns without the Borstel. With a Borstel, the stats you want are:
      • EPS and Damage will be covered by the Borstel/Tri-Cannon.
      • Drain under 2k
      • Mass under 27k
      • Refire .400 and under
      • VS Shields & Armor .640+
  • Reactors: Mass Under 29.5k / Generation: 30k+ / PreNerf Kuat Systems Engineering RCT-Z / Generation: 40k+ (Pre-nerf no longer exists as of the day SWG was cancelled.) (Bad Advice on Mass: You want 24k or less mass)
  • Shields: Drain 2200 and lower / Mass 28k and lower / Regen 14+
    • Front & Back Hitpoints 2433 (Tier 4 reward shield available in all squadrons)
  • Armor: Armor 1900+; Nym’s Starmap gives a nice 1920 piece of armor / Mass under 13k

Level 9 lootEdit

  • Weapons:
    • Drain under 2000 / Mass 35k-40k
    • Min Damage 2200+ / Max Damage 3500+
    • EPS 24 and under / VS Shields & Armor .6xx+ / Refire under .33x
  • Reactors: Mass under 38k / Generation 31k+
  • Armor: Armor 1700+ / Mass under 15k
