Stealth Bombers: The Ultimate Ninja Ratters

Forget high sec missions! Live dangerously and head out to Null Sec when you want to make some ISK!

Why grind through boring high sec missions when you could make more ISK in a Stealth Bomber?

A Ninja Ratting Stealth Bomber can make 20-30 million ISK per hour in null sec and that's not even counting the ISK you will get from the Faction Modules you will get every once in a while!

2017 UPDATE: Since the this article was published over 32,000 EVE Pilots have used this information to get out into Null Sec and start making ISK. In an effort to ensure the fittings and method taught here still work I have updated all of the fittings, and added some new information.

So how do you do it?

First you need to optimize your Fit and your Skills.

Let's say you want to Ninja Rat in the Fountain Region. The Rats in Fountain are Serpentis which has a weakness to both Kinetic and Thermal damage types. For this you would want to fly a Manticore or Nemesis because they get bonuses to the damage types you want to do.

So whatever Stealth Bomber you happen to fly, you want to find a region with Rats that are weak to your damage type.

Stealth Bomber Damage Types:

  • Purifier = EM Damage Bonus
  • Nemesis = Thermal Damage Bonus
  • Manticore = Kinetic Damage Bonus
  • Hound = Explosive Damage Bonus

Now you should have a null sec region picked out to go to with your ship. Next you need to optimize your Skills. If you plan on doing this often you should invest your training time into missile and torpedo skills as well as the Covert Ops skill.

Below are the fits you should use. I will explain a little about why afterwards...

Now let's talk about why I fit them like this. The cloak is what gets you around Null Sec safely and lets you disappear when someone enters the system. You are a Ninja that disappears when ever someone looks for you!

But don't think the Cloak makes you 100% safe, because you can still be caught and uncloaked by Drag and Stop Bubbles. To learn how to avoid and escape Bubble Camps and Gate Camps check out this Survival Guide (over 25,000 Views on YouTube).

Next the Afterburner keeps your sig small and speed up so that you take minimal damage from the rats you are killing.

Your shield resists are optimized toward the types of rats your are fighting. Before flying these you should confirm the damage types and if different change your resist mods/rigs as needed.

Beyond that it's pretty simple, you orbit at 40km around the battleship rats while killing them and should you ever get down below 30% shield you warp out, regen shield and try again.
