Here's a way to make extra money in Raptor (on any difficulty level below Elite), provided you are patient enough.
When you exit a mission, all the money you accumulated in that mission is lost, but your shields remain as they were, right? You can use this to your advantage. Start a mission (ANY available mission), and do nothing but avoid enemy fire. Do this until your shields are up to 85-100%. Quit the mission and sell 3x25 energy for 15000 credits. Rinse and repeat until you have enough money to buy what you currently need (or you get utterly bored ;-)).
Also, if you play on a level where you get Megabombs, those stay as well, meaning even more extra money.
lovely advice, thanks man!
If you can fight your way to Bravo sector wave 6, there are some Dumbfire missiles that can be picked up close to the beginning of the level. Abort the mission and sell them for 72,600! Repeat as often as necessary.

Likewise, in wave 3, there are Air-To-Ground missiles that sell for 55k that're about halfway through the level. Do that 3 times, and you'll be pimped.
thanks for the tips people

I have started playing this recently and it's pretty challenging
Oh, come on, guys, the game is not that difficult.
It can be finished without any cheating (I just did that), you just have to be careful not to get hit that often.
I've heard much kinder ways to tell me I suck.
Wave 7 of Bravo there is a megabomb about 15 seconds into the level. It's only about $15k sold, but it's right in the beginning of the level.
I do the samething whit other objects, on Elite difficult Is really functional too.

On the E1M1 reach the max life as you can, try to Finish the level, then buy an ion Scanner.

On the E1M2 You will find a Green missils it cost 100000 aprox. Cancel the mision and sell them, The times You neeed. I recommended you Buy Phase Shell x 5, Plasma cannon, Missile pod, micromissiles.

Now on E1M6 you will reach your mine of gold, there is a dumbfire misssils it cost about 140000 aprox, and they are really close, Cancel the mision and sell them, The times You neeed.

then you have all weapons on the game :)... this avice is for persons do not like suffer... this little trick I discover on the third time I`m finish the game (MS-DOS EDITION)... I'm used to playing normal but I use to get powerful weapons to my little nephew. I hope this serve someone else. :)

An exploit is not cheating, it's exploiting...

A very good one too. thanks!
I've noticed that after buying certain missiles, after a while they dissapear from my inventory. Anyone knows how this works and why this happens?

If your health is reduced very low, there is a chance that your weapons may be destroyed whenever you are hit.
In Bravo Sector Mission/Wave 3, there is on the begining one container with an Air/Ground Missile inside it.
Pick it up and sell it for 55.000.

In four "plays" you can get 220k money ...

Here I found a video about this:
