An Unexpected Twist (5 of 7)


Faction: Rogue Drones

Space Type: Deadspace
Damage dealt: All kinds (54% Expl, 22% Kin, 19% Therm, 5% EM)

Extras: Neutralizer Towers and Stasis Towers
Web/scramble: Strain Drones
Recommended ship types: passive tanked Battlecruiser or HAC

The BS Drone (has different names) drops the can you need with the "Hive Mind CPU".

3x Drone Energy Neutralizer Sentry I Energy Neutralizer
3x Drone Light Missile Battery
2x Drone Stasis Battery Stasis Webifier
2x Tower Sentry Drone I

Wave 1

(After about 30 seconds)
4x Drone Destroyer (Shredder Alvior)
4x Drone Frigate (Silverfish Alvi)

Wave 2

(When you attack a tower)
2x Drone Frigate (Render Alvi)

Wave 3

(When you attack a different tower)
2x Drone Battlecruiser (Crippler Alvatis)
3x Drone Frigate (Raider Alvi)

Wave 4

Wave 6

1x Drone Elite Frigate (Strain Splinter Alvi) Warp Scrambler

Wave 7

(When the BS reaches about 50% structure)
2x Drone Battlecruiser (Enforcer Alvatis)
2x Drone Cruiser (Disintegrator Alvum)

After few minutes, the Battleship Drone will spawn (Alvus Ruler, Supreme Alvus Parasite, possibly others). It has high damage, even at 50km, so be careful. As you shoot the BS, another group of drones (Wave 7) will spawn.

Blitz
Go in passive tanked, ignore all sentries and neut towers. While waiting for the BS, kill off the first spawn. Wait for the BS to come out of the range of the stasis towers (you won't have cap to tractor the loot can), then go for it, pick up the can, finito.

Alternative Blitz
Go in passive tanked, but kill the Stasis Towers early. There's plenty of time to take care of the triggered Strain spawn before the BS drone with the mission loot spawns, and this way you can attack it earlier (while still closer to the structures).
