Wing Commander Privateer Player's Guide


The scanner provides you with radar, target information, friend-or-foe HUD targeting and a target camera. There are three brands, each with a different display and each with its own advantages. Below are the statistics for each level of scanner, listed by brand name. All have a range of 35,000 K, and all have HUD brackets. In general, the brands are comparable except at the high end, in which the B&S Omni is clearly the superior (and costliest) choice.

Privateer Playtester's Guide


  • When you buy a new ship, your maps, jump drive, and scanners are transferred automatically. You must buy everything else. — "Frog"
  • Your Tarsus is outfitted with the most basic scanner available. All ships appear in gray. The only way you can find out whether a given ship is hostile or not is by communicating with him. This may cost you valuable time and can put you in severe danger. Do not accept any bounty hunting missions before you have pur-chased a scanner that distinguishes by color. As soon as you can afford it, you should invest in a Hunter AW 6i scanner, which offers the best features of all scanners in its price range and distinguishes ships by color. Eventually, you should probably invest in a level three scanner. — "Frog"
  • If you like flying with an ITTS, you should definitely try to purchase a Hunter AW Infinity scanner or a B&S Omniscience scanner. If you like detailed color-coding during space flight, you will probably want to buy a B&S E.Y.E. scanner instead. – "Strider"
  • You must have a locking radar for the locking mechanisms of your guided mis-siles to work effectively. All level two and three scanners feature target locks. If you are flying with a level one scanner, your guided missiles will fly in a straight line like dumb fires. – "Strider"
