Ever wondered how to bump capitals to keep them docking, tethering or entering a POS to escape your guns? We recently had the opportunity to practice our capital bumping when Unspoken Alliance dropped a couple of caps near a their POS which we had just reinforced. As Ushra’Khan generally flies cheaper ships that are accessible to newer pilots, it was fun to be able to work together to take down a ship of that size.
The tactic is pretty simple:
- Get your ships between the POS and the capital you want to bump.
- Fly at the pos until you bounce of the shields.
- Activate your prop mod and approach the capital.
- Bounce off, knocking the capital backwards.
- Repeat steps 2-4 until the capital explodes.
