Faction: Mercenaries
Mission type: Encounter
Space type: Normal (bookmark works)
Damage dealt: All kinds.
Web/scramble: Mercenary Wingman, Zerak Cheryn
Recommended damage dealing: Thermal
Recommended ships: Onyx

This is a hybrid mission, meaning you will warp to a beacon, but there's no deadspace affecting your mwd, nor will there be a gate.

Single Pocket

Single Group

Aggro from entire group from warp-in point.

2x Frigate (Mercenary Wingman)
2x Frigate (Mercenary Elite Fighter)
1x Cruiser (Mercenary Lieutenant)
1x Cruiser (Ytari Niaga, Zerak Cheryn or Kuran "Scarface" Lonan)

The last rat killed will drop 1 unit of Special Delivery that is required to be brought back to agent to complete the mission. None of the NPCs in the entire mission respawn.

The beacon is 15km from the group of rats, meaning you can try to warp in at 100km getting some distance. But the rats are very fast, and will swarm you in a few seconds.

Note: Cruiser (Ytari Niaga, Zerak Cheryn or Kuran "Scarface" Lonan) have a small chance to drop fraction module ( Dread Guristas Co-Processor from Ytari Niaga) or implant


The Casino will drop 20 units each of two random types of commodity or perhaps tourists.


Bounty : ~270,000 ISK
Loot : ~327,000 ISK (EVE estimated, salvage included)


2.4% standing penalty with opposing faction to agent.

Nice... Drunk Tourists... What I Always Wanted.

Easy Mission, Took down 55% of my shields and it was over (i'm armor tank)
Also... A Cruiser can do this mission with little/no Issue with proper Tank..

In case you want to keep the mission item for your collection,
it is worth knowing that the standing loss is huge:

-9.78% against the corp
-3.15% against the corp faction (Minmatar)
-2.95% against the associated faction (Gallente)

I had Ytari Niaga and the total loot and salvage was worth 385K. Very easy in a Myrmidon with T1.5 fit

Tried it in a CN Hookbill (with a low skilled toon). Had to switch to a better toon with a T3 destroyer (Jackdaw) and he almost had problems.

The 2 Mercenary Wingman both web and seem to have large shield tanks (or strong Kinetic resists) but the 2 "Elite" Fighter frigs are easy to kill. The 2 cruisers also died quicker than the 2 webbing frigs !

I was using T2 Scourge Furies as I didn't have any thermal missiles and couldn't be bothered shopping for them just for this mission (which I thought would be a little easier, especially for a L2).

The named rat dropped a -703 implant worth around 23.5 mil isk.
