If you chose to Blitz Part 10, take care of the group that agros you first. After that destroy the structure and fly between the groups of BS's to get the can. The closest they came was 52km.

For part 10 pocket 3; after destroying the target you can warp out (to clear agro) then warp back in the mission and clear groups 3 and 4 separately. Agro-ing one side will not agro the other.

Kite them to ensure the battleships and battlecruisers are not in optimal range (kill the frigates first). Bounty for the battleships is 1.2M. A 400+ dps tank (Sansha damage), 135 m/s speed, and 350+ dps was enough for me to accomplish this. (was using a Typhoon)

Part 7 - The Secret Meeting: The Battleship didn't drop anything good for me. The Asteroid Factory can't be destroyed in a reasonable amount of time. Has a LOT of armor. :P

Part 7: Prisoners dropped from Group 4 (after killing Group 2). Didn't kill Group 1&3

Part 8: Mission marked as completed after killing Groups 1 & 2. Didn't kill Group 3 with web/scram

Part 9: Prisoners dropped from Group 4 (after killing Group 1). Didn't kill Group 2&3 (with web/scram)

ps. completed all the Parts in a Rifter :) (all meta4 gear, skills - core and defence almost perfect with nooby offensive skills)

I got a +3 intelligence implant from part 10. It dropped from the communications tower itself, not anything next to it nor the derelict industrial.

the last room of Part 10 is intense but as usual reward/ risk factor is as follow in less than an hour (had to warp my Myrmidon to Citadel twice)

- Loot: 14.2 M (includes +3 Cybernetic Implant)
- Salvage: ~ 7 mil (approx as other rooms and a Den are included)
- Bounty: 2 mil (all rooms
