Your First Kill in a Thrasher – Solo PVP Guide

For a long time now I've had the idea of making a series of videos called "Your First Kill in a..." where I show a ship and show you how to get a kill with it.

To kick it off I decided the Armor Buffer Thrasher was a perfect choice because it's easy to fly (passive tanked) has good DPS output and is cheap.

Here's the Fitting:

Tactics:

To get the first kill we are going to rely on being able to force a desirable fight, while avoiding undesirable fights. We do this with a Small Mobile Bubble setup as a Stop Bubble in Null Sec.

This is best done in a pipe system or choke point. Extra credit if you can catch more than one gate warp in with the same bubble like I do in this video.

For detailed explanation and to see the two kills I got pretty quickly check out this video:
