They're a victim of years of neglect and power creep. It usually runs a superior active tank and your targets will have problems breaking you. Unique subsystems and fittings, coupled with a new compact ice mining laser design, give the Endurance the unique ability to harvest ice from a frigate class hull. The ship is also agile and fast—catching it will be hard. Covert Ops Covert Ops frigates can warp while cloaked, and have bonuses to scanning and hacking. The Amarr Punisher, while slow, has the toughest armour of any frigate.
This is the remnant of old design from 2015, when tiers were more or less tied to 1v1 win rate. Due to the offensive nature of target painting and the stacking penalties related to it, generally only one is needed in a fleet. This ship carries drones to help it do damage. Caldari Navy Hookbill The ship that the hookbill is most comparable to is the hawk or, as funny as it might sound, the buzzard. Tormentor Tier 1 : A super strong scram kiter that also rocks a really strong tank. Provide details and share your research! This ship is actually quite generous in terms of powergrid, so a light to moderate buffer or combined buffer and rep fits quite easily.
Although they are relatively fragile they are designed to be able to vanish when threatened. Stiletto and Malediction Tier 1 These two are the strongest interceptors for catching stuff and providing tackle in fleets. It can't even handle any belt rats that might spawn without refitting. As a scientist, I also appreciate that you're conscious enough of your data limitations to note when you don't have enough data. In PvE the more combat-focused frigates are used to complete Level 1 missions, though once new pilots are a little wealthier and better-trained they often begin to use instead. The other interesting aspect of the sansha line is their tendency to have plenty of spare high slots and no launcher hardpoints , making them useful both for PvE and for cap warfare.
They were calculated from with , using the speed formulas from the and the. In terms of comparison, the succubus most closely resembles the harpy. In PvE assault frigates can take on missions and combat sites which would normally be too difficult for a frigate-sized ship. There are some niche fits using dual reps fueled by dual nosferatu that also are a bit cool. My point being that they all have the same scan bonus so its really preference. These hulls were originally meant for mining, but were repurposed with the release of the Venture. Frigates are the smallest size of ships in Eve, aside from shuttles.
The dps output of the slicer is quite surprising even with scorch, and by chasing from 20km you're handing them a significant advantage - even if you're able to close the distance the chances are you'll have taken significant damage by the time you've done so. Maybe give them all like 25% pool and 25% regen? What else do you need to do in a Covert frigate? So now the tier is simply my opinion about the ship. Providing you're able to remain outside of web range, you'll probably find evading or controlling range against the cruor to be fairly easy, especially if it's afterburner fit. My goal for this update was to streamline all information in previous reports in one concise document. The ships are grouped from left to right by strength stronger to weaker. All can field a few drones, but are by no means combat worthy. They do come with a higher price tag and skillpoint requirements.
After that I learned that win rates are good indication of strength for T1 frigates, less so for faction frigates and fairly meaningless for pirate frigates, even when I control the sample for various non-PvP kills and losses. Unlike the crusader, the slicer will be receiving the full signature radius bloom from running a mwd, so larger ships may simply be able to pick them off as they try to kite. And while it's certainly true that inties and cheap t1 tackle remain the most common frigates found in null, assault frigates have unsurprisingly exploded in popularity after their revamp, and at least in my experience they're not uncommon sights at all these days. I know you can run some dishonor 1v1 fits with this ship and win. The Covert Ops frigate is able to mount a Covert Ops cloaking device that allows warping while cloaked. When the dram is able to disengage, aim to start dealing damage as early as possible and as quickly as possible - as I mentioned the dram will often overshoot initially, meaning low angular velocity and a delay before they're properly able to assess your damage output and react to it.
Where the daredevil gets a fixed 200% damage bonus however, the cruor only gets a 100% bonus, resulting in fairly mediocre dps for a faction frigate. Swarms of Griffins are usually avoided like the plague. It is quite possible to be under attack from an Interceptor while entering warp only to find the same Interceptor waiting when the ship drops out of warp. In general, they tend to have the ability to take a little more damage than their counterparts and deal out a little more damage in return, but they are not much of a match for a larger ship when alone. A Covert Ops Cloaking Device will allow it to warp while cloaked, making it very difficult to catch. This is especially useful considering that the hookbill generally fits rockets fitting standards alongside a tank is pretty much impossible due to powergrid , and rockets benefit greatly from having a stationary target. The operating range of this ship is incredible.
Heron Tier 1 : While this ship has a limited engagement profile and is only good in 1v1 situations, it still gets the job done. If the cruor is able to web you, expect to be neuted in short order. This means a lot if you are sneaking up on a target and trying to get there fast or get in very close with out getting uncloaked. Since it only has 3 mid slots the rail daredevil isn't able to reduce your own range in the same way as ships like the helios can, so another ship with comparable range may be able to nullify this advantage. These ships have received significant , with the stated aim of making them into T1 versions of Interceptors.

As a primarily amarr-based ship, the cruor is fairly sluggish compared to the daredevil. That said, most fights involving a slicer are over before a single small neut would have begin to make an impact. Due to their extreme fragility, cov-ops frigates should not generally be used in a tackling role, and are typically invisible at all times. You will take a few loss mails learning how to fly it but what is a 10M Atron vs a 80M faction frigate. While they are somewhat lacking in electronic warfare capabilities and firepower compared to the combat recons, they should nevertheless not be under estimated.
