Default Self-Destruct is the best weapon in the game

So I equipped a Self-Destruct with an Escape Pod a little while ago to test the synergy. Turns out Escape Pods don't work with Self-Destruct, which feels like a bug, but here's what else I found.

Self-Destruct:
  • gives no EXP penalty on death
  • has no power load requirement
  • costs no energy
  • deals massive damage to the whole screen
  • cooldown can be skipped by waiting to click "Ressurect"
  • is the ONLY way to instantly recharge shields (but not armor) to full every time

Did you miss one?
  • Hardcore ship is lost forever on use

I haven't tried this, but it seems to be a safe assumption.

There's also the problem of progression. If you're in the middle of an uninhabited sector it can be a complete pain in the neck to get back to where you came from, but at the same time if you accidentally wander into an unstable wormhole and get thrown into the ass end of the universe it's a very useful shortcut back to the home system.

That said, you better hold on to the one you get because they stop showing up later on.
