Mission briefing
A rogue drone virus has gone live at a mining colony. The machinery is malfunctioning and the problem spreading throughout the entire network. We sent a small rescue crew and it took over their systems. The crews are still alive but they're held hostage by their own ships. Unfortunately, we can't let that cloud our judgment. The infection must be destroyed… completely.

We have reason to believe your capsuleer vessel will be able to withstand infection long enough to eradicate the problem.

Rogue Drones
Rogue drones and wild drones are the terms used over advanced drones that mutated out of control. A few years ago some ingenious Gallente inventor had the idea of creating super-advanced drones that could think and act on their own - in essence acting in every sense like a regular space ship except being unmanned and computer controlled. First prototypes were encouraging, but then disaster struck. The drones became unruly, then unmanageable. Some of these were huge - the largest drones ever constructed, these drones were even equipped with warp drives and equipped with the latest advancements in artificial intelligence. These mother drones, as they were called, along with several lesser drones soon managed to spread out, not only within the same system as the research facility that birthed them, but also to other systems. Only later men discovered exactly how - the drones attacked and took over space ships, then used them to jump to other systems, the drones themselves safely hidden within the ship. Needless to say the super-drone research was soon abandoned by the Gallente.

Single ungated pocket. Auto-aggro on initial group and spawns. Watch out for continuous AoE damage to player ships and drones while in the pocket. Drone ships such as Dominix can not be used at all in this mission.

Mission is complete when wave 3 and "Patient Zero" structure are destroyed. Mission is completed also when Patient Zero is destroyed and waves 2 and 3 have not yet been spawned - just leave some ships from spawn 1 alive.


  • Attacking Patient Zero triggers wave 1.
  • One of the Domination Alvus battleships of wave 1 will trigger wave 2 when destroyed.
  • Destroying wave 2 will trigger wave 3 (Note: 2018/8/6 - wave 3 didn't arrive at all).
  • Destroying Patient Zero (and wave 3 if it has been triggered) completes the mission.

Tip: Destruction of Patient ends the AoE damage, enabling e.g. salvaging with an alt in a fragile ship or deploying drones to destroy frigate NPCs.

Blitz: Destroy Patient Zero without triggering wave 2 or 3.
