Designed as much to look like a killing machine as to be one, the Ferox will strike fear into the heart of anyone unlucky enough to get caught in its crosshairs. With the potential for sizable armament as well as tremendous electronic warfare capability, this versatile gunboat is at home in a great number of scenarios.

Summary

The Ferox is generally more popular as a PvP ship than a PvE ship, as when in combat with NPCs, the limited range of blasters or limited damage of railguns do not combine well with the Ferox's slow speed and large signature radius.

In particular, the Ferox has spent several years as one of the most popular ships in very large nullsec fleets. It is cheap, durable, and its railguns can project damage to very long ranges. Its popularity has resulted in it receiving several nerfs over 2018 and 2019, but it is still a solid low-tech, even Alpha-usable, fleet ship. (It speaks volumes that two of its great competitors in this role, the Eagle and Muninn, are both Heavy Assault Cruisers and thus significantly more expensive and skill-intensive, and the Ferox still sees significant use.)

Outside of nullsec fleets, the Ferox also sees popularity in lowsec as a brawling-blaster platform, relying on its innately thick battlecruiser hull, six turret hardpoints, and often an XL Ancillary Shield Booster, to grind enemies apart faster than they can break through it.
