Mission briefing
So you want to fly for the Guristas? Welcome aboard, egger. You get to do some rookie stuff.

We've leaked information on the location of a particularly rich group of asteroids within Venal. We expect a Minedrill expedition to show up soon, and we want someone to be there to greet them. You can expect their expedition to be made up of several combat escorts and an industrial.

Take out the industrial and grab its crew. Knowing Minedrill, this'll just be a research team – they need to test the rocks first before sending in those expensive barges. But once we have their people, we can mine their personnel for any intelligence on future ops.

If you haven't picked up on this already, we're a cautious bunch. We like to make sure whatever op we run goes off right. We have weapon caches, safe houses, and agents everywhere we plan to operate, even in empire space. The Guristas have contingencies for everything, even in dealing with someone like you.

Ungated semi-deadspace pocket up to two jumps away.

Blitz: kill waves 1, 2 and 3, then kill the Minedrill E518 Industrial.


  • You will lose 0.02% Caldari State Faction Standing when you destroy the Minedrill E518 Industrial
  • Minedrill – E518 Crew will appear in the cargohold of the ship that destroyed the Minedrill E518 Industrial
  • If the ship is full and it cannot accept the Minedrill – E518 Crew, the Crew will appear in a Cargo Container
