Drone Bunny (DDD)

Recommended Posts

Description of the DDD

 

The DDD is the person responsible for killing all the frigates on the field. As soon as you land, people assign drones to you up to a maximum of 50 drones. Most of these drones are light drones, which are fast and able to reach the target you aggress quickly. Your objective is to kill the frigates as fast as you can, especially those frigates that do bad things to the fleet, namely ECM, Points (Scrams) and Webs.

 

You cannot directly instruct the 50 assigned drones to attack a particular target. They follow your shots and attack what you attack. This means that if you use an aggressive module (i.e. Weapons, Webs or a Painter), they all attack that target. They will follow whatever aggressive module you last activated on a target.

 

  • If you have more drones assisted to you, stop the cycle on an aggressive module and re-activate it on the same target to send the remaining drones.

  • If a target dies, quickly activate one or more modules on a new target to send the drones there.

  • You can split your guns into multiple stacks, or use 1 gun specifically for directing drones.

  • Strategically time and minimize your movements to optimize your tracking against small targets.

  • Minimize drone travel time and wasted DPS by keeping them on one target as long as possible.

  • Always listen to your FC.

  • "Full fleet shoot the XXX" includes you, the Drone Bunny, unless otherwise directed.

  • YOU WANT 50 DRONES AT ALL TIMES TO MAXIMIZE YOUR DPS. (Ask for more drones if you think you aren't capped at 50.

 

Accepted Drone Bunny Ships

  • Vindicator

  • Bhaalgorn

  • Other DPS ships

How to fit: ideally the DDD has 2 Webs to slow your targets and Tracking Enhancer lowslots to enhance your range and tracking against targets.

 

What do I shoot? ONSTER

 

Outuni

Never shoot the first tagged Outuni. Outunis are a primary target and the first one dies almost instantly. Shoot the second or third tagged Outuni the first, so you apply your damage the best. The Outuni have large neuts.

Niarja

Niarjas are only present in TCRCs. This is your primary target at all times when they are present. The Niarja neuts and jams pilots.

Schmaeel

Nasty little frigates, they point and web. Usually your primary target on most of the HQ sites. You want to get your fellow fleet members safely to the next gate and not being slowed down.

Tama

 Tamas deal high DPS and they point. Although lower down on the list, these are important to get off-grid quickly.

Eystur

Normal Frigate.

Renyn

            Normal Frigate. Has webs.

 

 

What should I do and kill where?

TPPH

Room 1

  • Schmaeel

  • Renyns

  • Tamas

Room 2

  • Schmaeels

  • Renyns

  • Romis (reverse order of tags)

Room 3

      Towards the end of each wave, you need to shoot at the last Ostingele Tectum as this helps reduce the drones being shot on each new wave. Listen for the FC to call this swap but try to anticipate it for yourself.

Wave 1

  • Tamas

  • Eysturs

  • Romis

Wave 2

  • Schmaeels

  • Tamas

  • Romis

Wave 3

  • SECOND Outuni

  • Schmaeels

  • Leftover frigates

  • Romis

 

NRF

Wave 1

  • Schmaeels

  • Renyns

  • Uitra

  • Romis (Furthest from DPS ships)

Wave 2

  • Schmaeels

  • Tamas

Wave 3

  • Tamas

  • Romis (Furthest from DPS ships)

Wave 4

  • Last Tagged Outuni

  • Eysturs

  • Romis (Reverse Tag Order)

 

TCRC

The most important site as a drone bunny. This is the only site where the Niarja spawns. The Niarja jams and neuts people and is your highest priority target. If the Niarja attacks a Logistics pilot, they are unable to lock the person who has the aggro and their cap gets drained.

Primary Objective

  • Kill all the Niarjas on the field. This is your #1 job without delay. Once killed, one will respawn behind the Shield Transfer tower every 30 seconds or so. Position yourself between the Sansha battletower and the Shield Transfer array (9 bubbles) to be in optimal position to kill the Niarja every time as soon as it respawns.

Secondary Objective

  • Kill Schmaeels

    • Two Schmaeels near the MTAC factory will respawn if killed, which the FC should tag J; do not kill these. Between killing Niarjas, you should work on killing the untagged Schmaeels. 

Once the tower is destroyed, no Sansha will respawn. Align to the FC's broadcast and help killing the remaining Schmaeels and the Auga, as well as any late respawning Niarja. Warp off grid when the FC says "DPS/SNIPERS/BATTLESHIPS WARP".
