Pirates have moderate health and kinetic shielding making them easy to eliminate. Like any other enemy in Galaxy, their shields will begin to regenerate 1.5 seconds after being disabled, but their health will not.
Pirates will attack at medium and short ranges with their assault rifles. Their shots don’t do much damage and they lack any special attacks.
Although they’re fully affected by the Jacob’s powers the use of these should be prioritized on stronger enemies if any are present.
