Another ship that can be used would be a kronos and despite the fact that it has 4 turret hardpoints I am able to solo every L4 sec mission thrown at me with a passive armor tank and yes I said passive tank.

My fit allows for me to salvage the mission while Im fighting or just after clearing a room w/o swapping my ship and I still achieve the reward (bonus too) along with bounties, salvage and loot. Fit is T2 or better.

I do believe that for that type of fit you will have to accommodate the possibility of warping out of site to repair damage

I used a Dominix with MJD and Wardens. Jump away from rats, drop sentries, shoot until they get uncomfortably close, pick up drones, jump, etc… Optimal for the Wardens with level 4 skills is about 100 Km and they do about 500dps. Not the fastest way to clear L4’s but safe and reliable. I eventually replaced the Domi with a Rattlesnake.

I’ve since changed course. Most of my gameplay and income now is industry. I use a HAM Legion for PVE content and no longer own a battleship.

Man, times changed.

I used to run other people’s lvl4 missions in dodixie in a lightning fast high RoF hurricane with COSMOS 720s, faster than they could in their battleships, back when they had higher RoF than the rest of them. The best/worst part of that was that people THANKED ME for that, instead of being pissed about me stealing their bounty.

You kids and your battleships.

Sniper Kronos, 200+km range? Only way I can think of for passive armor tank.

I have sniper and brawler fits for Kronos, they are both fun and awesome. Marauders are one of the few ships that can do both roles well.

two month in my case. Not bragging or anything, I got the tips from another mission runner. Rattlesnake and MJD&sentries combo is works for low skill point pilots.

wrong I fly a brawler fit that is passive (with 1 active armor repair that is x-type (just a few pulses at a time)) and with the bastion (siege) mod turned on I can clear a 6 hr mission inside of 2 hours w/o having to wrap off and repair damage

Ok, but that makes it an active tank, due to the armor rep you’ve got on there. A passive tank refers to where the HP comes from, not the resists. So a passive tanked armor ship would have plates, where as an active tank will use repairers (1 or more). Either could use hardeners or energized plates, depending on what you’re trying to achieve.

I use an Enyo for my level 4 missions :slight_smile:

Those are either DED 4 or 5 /10 complexes for which you need a pirate cruiser or a battlecruiser for. I guess any HAC will do fine also.

I recommend a battleship at DED 6 - 10 /10.

As for level 4 missions most HACs, tech 1 battlecruisers and pirate faction cruisers and any tech 1 battleship can do them.

It escapes me why one would need a 10 zillion isk marauder for a level 4 mission.

ye some people will swear you can run them in a tengu… which you probably can; but its usually subpar to a properly fitted bs.

i have a two bil one sat in hs, its literally for level 4’s on easy mode but ive not used it in years.
I wont sell it, its my hs mission ship.

Hey don’t get me wrong, if you like what you fly then it is all good and okay.

My point was, fly what you like, not what you must since those two are usually mutual exclusive.
Many ways leave to Rome meaning there are so many options to run level 4 missions in, it is hard to keep track of.

Personally I never really liked those sleeper cruisers, so I don’t fly them. I had a bad fit proteus once which died horribly and I used to have a tengu and I sold it, I found it to be a terrible ship.
However, I do have a crazy logi fit that would equal and rival 2 tech 2 logi V fleet Basiliks in rep power for a duration of about 2 minutes.

I run missions in an Armageddon when I am chilling in highsec and I have a complex Dominix in Stain somewhere.

yeh atm my goto ship for that sort of thing is rattler, a 1400 dps upto 70k; its about the fastest i can run sites i thnk. still gets grindy though.
So i tend to prfer just trying to grab burners :stuck_out_tongue:

You should seriously consider a Nightmare! It’s just so… so Spikey! :smiley:

Pfft, u missile chucking hobo, get a ship capable of precision rat attacks, i.e. Lasers! pew! pew! (On the forum one must make ones own sound effects) :stuck_out_tongue:

I may or may not use a Nightmare for L4s :wink:
