Drone Horde is an unrated combat site belonging to the Rogue Drones faction. It can be found via exploration as a cosmic anomaly in null-security systems across New Eden. As an ungated complex, the limitations as to which ships can complete this site are tied to the security rating of the system where the anomaly spawns (T2 Battleships for high-security systems, and up to Titans in low-security and null-security systems).

This site comes in two forms: One which cointains a turret ring and a cloud gas centering a structure, and other that has 4 bunkers in the middle and many scattered in the corners of a square pattern.

Walkthrough (4-Bunker Variant)

This site contains four bunkers at 30km from landing and four other separated in a square pattern centering the bunker cluster. The initial wave spawns scattered at the "corners" of that square, all next waves spawn near the central bunker cluster. The site shows some major inconsistencies regarding the order and timing of wave spawning, resulting in some iterations spawning more than one wave at once, and in others skipping one entirely.


Initial spawn
WD EWAR L


Elite Frigate 2-4 x Elite Frigate Strain Infester / Splinter / Raider Warp Disruptor Stasis Webifier
Destroyer 1-3 x Destroyer Marauder / Dismantler / Predator Alvior
Battlecruiser 1-2 x Battlecruiser Crippler / Defeater / Exterminator Alvatis
Battleship 4-8 x Battleship Alvus Queen / Matriarch Alvus

Removing battleships from the initial wave will trigger two additional waves before the complete removal of the initial wave.

One of those two waves will consist of frigates and some bigger ships, the other of cruisers and bigger ships.

After the complete removal of the initial spawn and the two additional waves, the site will sequentially spawn these five additional waves (in a random order):


3x Cruiser & Battleship waves
WD EWAR L


Elite Cruiser 3-4 x Elite Cruiser Strain Nuker / Bomber / Disintegrator Alvum
Battleship 3-4 x Battleship Alvus Queen / Matriarch Alvus


1x Battlecruiser & Battleship wave
WD EWAR L


Battlecruiser 3-4 x Battlecruiser Striker / Siege / Enforcer Alvatis
Battleship 3-4 x Battleship Alvus Queen / Matriarch Alvus


1x Frigate & Battlecruiser
WD EWAR L


Elite Frigate 2-3 x Elite Frigate Strain Infester / Splinter / Render
Battlecruiser 2-3 x Battlecruiser Crippler / Defeater / Exterminator Alvatis


1x Destroyer & Battleship wave; Consistently the last wave
WD EWAR L


Destroyer 3-4 x Destroyer Marauder / Dismantler / Predator Alvior
Battleship 3-4 x Battleship Alvus Queen / Matriarch Alvus


In whichever is the last wave, there is a chance of spawning an Infested Carrier

WD EWAR L


Carrier 0-1 x Carrier Infested Carrier

Walkthrough (Gas Ring Variant)

Features a structure 30km app. from landing, 8x Lookout Tokers and a Battlecruiser as the initial spawn. Waves are spawned on different points of an horizontal ring with a 20km radius centering the middle structure. Each of these waves spawns a little deployable (not lootable) that diminishes incoming damage. This combat site has a chance to spawn a Sentient Commander Rogue Drone, which drops drone components and may drop faction drone modules and items.
