How to do a DED 4/10 in a Slasher?

Yesterday, I saw a slasher that jumped into a DED 4/10 (Sansha's Nation Occupied Mining Colony). I thought it would warp out soon, but I was wrong. This slasher did the whole site and killed all NPC.
Now I would like to know, how you can do this? What tactics, skills and fittings do you need to be successful in this situation?

Sig tanking with active shield rep most likely. Crystals or Halo implants likely and so are drugs.

Post with your NPC alt main and not your main main alt!

Well its easily tanked, I have run them in a Worm with 50 EHP regen and never went below 50%. Slasher is faster 1300M/s vs 1000M/s (AB fit) and its Sig is like 33M vs 53M so its regen/boost could be way less.

the issue is site time. With like 120 DPS it would take forever to run (Unless there is some way to blitz the first room I'm not aware of) and you would have to drag the Overseer away from the spawn so that he stops repping to break his tank.

Thank you for the answers!

To understand how it works, I did a few Level 1 missions in an Atron with more than 1000m/s (AB). I took some damge but not much. On the other hand I also did not much damage. Most times I got the message that my blasters missed completely or made only minimal damage. So even shooting five frigates took several minutes.

Are Blasters the wrong weapon for a speed tanked ship? Is Antimatter Charge S not suited here? Or do I need just some Level V Skills?

Well Blasters have very short range, and burning with an AB at 1000ms most likely means that your orbit is fairly wide so you might be in falloff. Either that or you are really close and still going at 1000ms and you are killing your tracking. maybe try slowing you speed a bit.

Personally I like missiles or drones (hence the Worm) as I can Kite around at range (6Km) and not worry about tracking.

If you want something cheap, a Slicer is pretty good. Way more DPS than a slasher and tanks OK as well

This fit should be sub 20Mil, almost 220 DPS (100 more than the slasher)

Or if you want something really cheap. I would only use the blaster on cruisers since they may not track frigs very well at speed. It also saves time as you can just let the light kill the frigs while you burn the cruisers (save flying between around a lot)

Fit should be like 9mil. Drones have about as much DPS as the Slasher, with the blasters being a bonus.

I did a 4/10 DED in a Rupture this Weekend. Alpha Skills, T2 Tank, T1 weapons, no faction modules. Took me some time but I left with a 50mn C-type MWD that got me 90 Mil ISK.

Good work, nice drop.

I find that 4/10s are very hit and miss with drops. 90% of the time I get very very little.
