Development
The Rifter is a very powerful combat frigate and can easily tackle the best frigates out there. It has gone through many radical design phases since its inauguration during the Minmatar Rebellion. The Rifter has a wide variety of offensive capabilities, making it an unpredictable and deadly adversary.

Summary

The Rifter is the primary damage frigate for Minmatar. For tackling a Slasher or Merlin is by far better. While the Rifter used to be considered the best T1 frigate (leading to many memes surrounding it), it has been nerfed to be similar in abilities to the others.

  • With recommended skills, this setup tanks 20 dps from Angels and can run the afterburner for over 5 minutes.
  • You could run the afterburner indefinitely either by training Afterburner III and Energy Systems Operation III or by replacing one Shield Power Relay with a Power Diagnostic System I (weakening the tank slightly).
  • With Engineering IV you have the option of fitting 150mm autocannons.

NOTES
  • Range control is the most important thing to consider when soloing in this ship since you don't have the firepower or ehp to brawl with blaster boats or duke it out at range with laser boats.
  • Sit at the edge of scram range against blaster boats and orbit as tightly as you can against lasers.
  • Against missile boats try and keep your total speed as high as possible to reduce missile damage.
  • The rifter is the fastest of the combat frigs, so the only T1 frigs that should out maneuver you are the attack frigs, which have less tank than you do.
  • As fitted, with all skills at V and before boosts, this Rifter has 3.2k EHP, flies at 1193 m/s and align in 3.2 s with AB off. The ship is cap stable with the armor repairer on if you can apply your Nosferatu and lasts 1m 32s otherwise.
  • Damage is 117 dps at 0.8 + 9 km with faction ammo; tracking is 0.39 [rad/s].

Tactics

For tackling in a Rifter, spiralling is key. The ship is agile and fast enough that you can use a standard spiral with a MicroWarp Drive (MWD). Your only concern will be on final approach (30 km or so) to pulse the MWD so that the increased signature radius doesn't come in to play as much, as the MWD's signature bloom only applies while the MWD is activated. If the ship is Afterburner (AB) fit, the pilot may consider tightening the spiral slightly. Afterburners do not have a signature radius penalty, so you can risking a little more (but still tankable) damage in order to decrease closing time.

Roles

Solo PVP

The Rifter is an excellent ship for rookie pilots to learn their trade in due to the ship's endurance and it's low cost.

The Rookie Rifter guide nothing more needs to be said aside from reference to this excellent piece of work.

In Uni blobs

Mainly used in a tackling role. Focus is therefore on EITHER a MWD or an AB - MWD for sheer speed but at increased sig radius, AB provides a speed boost without the penalty to the increase sig radius, It is much a matter of personal preference but bear in mind that a MWD makes you a whole world easier to target!

For more on tackling please see:
EVE uni guide to tackling
