The missions in this epic arc are generally short. All the combat missions can be blized by only completing the single given objective. The epic arc requires you to do at least one hauling mission to either low or null security space.

There are also multiple branching missions so you won't need to complete all the missions listed here.

Super blitz

The missions in Penumbra are highly blitzable. This can be further augmented by preparing multiple ships in key locations.


  • Ships at Poinen IV - Moon 13 - Nugoeihuvi Corporation Development Studio:
    • A strong combat ship. Battleships are good for this.
    • A Travel interceptor. Fit sub 2s align time, MWD and data analyzer.
  • Ships at Uuhulanen VIII - Caldari Navy Logistic Support:
    • A Weaker combat ship. It needs to kill some elite frigates so fit for good application. Also fit a data analyzer. Battlecruisers are good for this.

Arc workout:

  • Grab your interceptor.
  • Start the arc.
  • Complete the fly-around missions with your interceptor.
  • Use your strong combat ship for Their Loss, Our Profit.
  • Use your interceptor for rest of chapter 1 and beginning of chapter 2.
    • Remember to pic Hyasyoda path in the branching mission.
  • Use your second combat ship in Uuhulanen for Right Tool for the Job.
  • Use your interceptor for rest of chapter 2 and beginning of chapter 3.
  • Use your strong battleship for Across the Line.
    • Accept mission with interceptor, grab combat ship from Poinen, do killing, drop off combat ship in Poinen, go back to agent with interceptor.
