This is the last part of “Ships Destroyed” Milestone. You are required to destroy 80 ships.

1) I recommend you install S-Class shield and weapons upgrades to make it easier. Whatever weapon you prefer to use.
2) Have some catalyst elements on hand to repaire you ship during battle. I suggest having Sodium and/or Sodium Nitrate on hand because they are easy to come by.
3) Fly around in space and you will encounter pirates and if you want to be a renegade you can pick off other ships near the space stations. Destroying any ships will count. I would recommend to only attack pirate ships or Sentinels. Destroying these ships won’t lower your standing with any of the races.
4) Don’t get yourself killed. Have a strategy.
— A) Have a space battle near a planet. If you are low on material to repaire your shield just head to the planet and land, wait for the timer to run out, exit the ship.
— B) Resuply with material, kill a sentinel, get back in your ship and head out to space before the timer runs out so that sentinel ships can pop back up for you to kill.
— C) Know how many ships you can handle before you get overwhelmed.
5) If you want to get rewarded for killing pirates then head to any space station and talk to the merchant that gives out missions. You can locate him on the same side as the teleporter. Most of the time he will have a mission to find and kill a pirate. This can be time consuming but at least you can work on your standing with that race and get a reward for each mission.
6) You can keep track of your progress in the Journey Milestones section under Milestones tab.
7) Kill 80 ships and the achievement will pop. Happy hunting!!
