Serpentis Hideout is an Unrated Deadspace Complex that is found in High Security and Low Security Gallente Space, via Scanning. The site consists of an entrance pocket, and two main pockets, separated by acceleration gates. The acceleration gates of this site permit up to Tech 2 Destroyers. This site is the smallest of the Serpentis unrated sites, and as such is very easy to complete. If running the site in a T1 frigate, or if using light drones, take care against the Elite Frigates (Coreli Guardian Agent/Defender/Guard/Protector) as they will do higher damage than the regular frigate enemies, and will target light drones. Most T1 destroyers, or T2 frigates can make quick work of this site.


When you warp to the site you will land on an acceleration gate. There are no enemies on it, and nothing around other than the acceleration gate that leads to the first main room of the site.

Main Room 1

This room contains just a couple frigates when you warp in, killing them will spawn additional waves of frigates.

Main Room 2

On warpin:
Heuristic analysis of this location indicates that destroying the Serpentis Armory would greatly improve your odds of uncovering further illicit activity.

This room contains a couple of frigates and a structure called Serpentis Armory upon warp in. After an amount of time more enemies will spawn, additionally, destroying the armory will cause a wave of enemies to spawn. Destroying the initial defenders has a chance to spawn a Shadow Serpentis faction frigate. Shadow Serpentis frigate rarely drops valuable Snake implant.
