  • If you encounter a shieldless Auto-Scout in an asteroid field, grab a glass of your favorite drink and relax as you watch the Auto-Scout get pelted to death by asteroids.
  • Take a shot every time you get into an environmental hazard such an asteroid field, ion storm, or pulsar.
    • If the hazard in question is Anti-Ship Batteries, take an extra shot. Take an extra one every time they hit your ship. If the Anti-Ship Batteries are allied, take a celebratory shot.
  • Drink an entire bottle if you're playing as the Engi B ship and you die after one jump to an event that causes crew loss.
  • If you're using the Stealth B ship and your Glaive Beam gets knocked offline, chug for however long your beam was charging until it was disabled.
  • Every time you're in an event where a Slug captain offers you a drink and you take them up on the offer, take a drink to join in. If the drink was spiked and you didn't use the Rockman crew blue option, spike your own drink before you finish it.
  • If you're using the Slug B ship, take a shot every time you use a Healing Burst and it misses.
    • Take two if your boarders die as a result.

    • Take two if you waiting allows the Rebel fleet to fully catch up.

  • Take a shot if you are in a store and one scrap away from buying a rare or crucial item.
    • Take a shot to ease the pain if you see such an item and you can afford it, but end up skipping it because hull, fuel, etc. are more important purchases.
