Contract Killers is a expedition combat site that can be gotten from the Serpentis Base unrated complex. While the Serpentis Base only spawn in null-sec, this expedition can lead to both low-sec and null-sec. Contract Killers is considered a rare expedition with very low chance of happening.

It consists of 2 parts.

Walkthrough

The room is ungated, meaning you can warp around in it, and people can warp directly to you.

Escalation message:
During the fight, you picked up a transmission from one of the station houses: someone is ordering someone else not to warp in. The message is answered a couple of times with this "someone else" demanding a reason for the change of plans until he is told in no uncertain terms to shut up and stay off the air. By that time your instruments have managed to pinpoint where the transmission is coming from.


Contract Killers - Part 2

The room is ungated, meaning you can warp around in it, and people can warp directly to you.

Take care of the NPCs but ignore the factory, as although it may look like an overseer structure it doesn't actually drop any deadspace items other than random contraband. The factory reps shield and armor so you will need around 1500dps just to break the tank. It fires Citadel torpedos which are relatively weak and can be tanked easily. The factory webs you up to 50km out.

The next stage is to shoot the structure named "Serpentis Drug Lab". To clarify, this is not the structure that shoots you or repairs itself. This will trigger another wave of ships about 160-180k from the beacon.

One battleship is named "Quertah Bleu", and is the overseer for the site. He moves very quickly and hits for a fair amount of damage and has exceptional tracking and damage application against fast moving targets. His tank, however, is nothing special. He is extremely fast and can be kited away from the rest of the wave easily, allowing you to kill and loot him.


Initial Defenders - 100km Off Warp-in
WD EWAR L


Elite Cruiser 3-4 x Elite Cruiser Corelum Guardian Chief Defender/Sentinel Remote Sensor Dampener
Battleship 3 x Battleship Core Baron/Commodore Remote Sensor Dampener
Sentry 4 x Sentry Serpentis Cruise Missile Battery

Commander Battleship 0-1 x Commander Battleship Shadow Serpentis Rear Admiral Faction modules. Some sources says implants, deadspace and BPCs


Structures
WD EWAR L


Structure 1 x Serpentis Drug Lab Triggers Defense Spawn on attack.)

A message will be broadcast in local:

Quertah Bleu: Hmmph. I have better things to do that mop the floor with a rag-tag band of upstarts. But you leave me no choice ...


Quertah Bleu Spawn - When drug lab receives damage
WD EWAR L


Elite Frigate 5 x Elite Frigate Quertah's Sidekick Warp Disruptor Stasis Webifier
Battlecruiser 3 x Battlecruiser Corelatis Captain Sentry/High Captain
Battleship 4 x Battleship Core Vice/Flotilla Admiral Remote Sensor Dampener
Commander Battleship 1 x Commander Battleship Quertah Bleu Remote Sensor Dampener Possible Core C-Type modules and a possible Vigilant/Vindicator BPC

Take him out and you'll get a message:

It is said that men on Exile feed on dreams of hope. With this place destroyed, some will have to change diet.

Note: (The player who receives aggro from the Serpentis Drug Factory can keep it at range of at least 60km. In this instance the Drug Factory will still rep its shields but will cease to repair its armor and will be much easier to take down. All other players assisting can keep the Drug Factory at preferred range as long as the player who receives aggro from the factory keeps it at 60km. Factory does not switch targets.)

Escalation Ends:
Someone once described a Mindflood trip like if you managed to blow your brains out shooting both barrels of a double-barreled shotgun at the same time. With this place gone, a lot of junkies in the region will have to resort to the latter, if they want a fix.

Loot Table

Quertah may drop Core C-types, and possibly a Vigilant BPC. Salvage from wreck is Tech 1. Quertah can also drop a 1-run Vindicator BPC.
