Guide to combat sites


Combat sites are a category of exploration sites. The sites ivolve fighting against pirate rats and reward DED modules, faction modules, faction blueprints and bounties. Combat sites can be divided to four groups: anomalies, cocmic anomalies, expeditions and drug sites.

Anomalies

Combat sites that are found as cosmic anomalies do not need any scanning equipment to locate. They are all ungated deadspace pockets with multiple waves of rats. They have low chance to spawn an commander rat that can drop faction items. They also have low chance to escalate into a DED rated cpomplex.

Combat site anomalies are ranked by difficulty into 10 levels/classes, and follow a naming scheme of (faction) (anomaly). Generally, the higher the difficulty of the site, the higher the rewards for completing it. Each faction's sites will only appear in regions where their rats are normally found (with the exception of Rogue Drone sites, which can appear anywhere). For example, the Heimatar region has Angel Cartel rats, and therefore only Angel Cartel and Rogue Drone combat sites will be found there. For a list of which pirate factions can be found in which regions, see dotlan.

The rank of the anomaly depends on the security status of the system you are searching in. Within high-sec (security status 1.0 to 0.5) the lowest third (in terms of difficulty/value) will be found. Low-sec (security status of 0.4 to 0.1) contains the mid third of them and the highest third will be found within nullsec. The anomaly names are identical for all factions with the exception of Rogue Drone sites, which also differ slightly in which classes of space they are found in.

Some anomaly types may have more difficult variants (featuring elite/commander rats) in addition to the basic version, sub-divided into 3 more categories:

  • (Faction) Hidden (anomaly) - easiest, but still harder than the basic version
  • (Faction) Forsaken (anomaly) - middle
  • (Faction) Forlorn (anomaly) - hardest

Besieged Covert Research Facilities

Besieged Guristas Covert Research Facility is an unique cosmic anomaly that is found in all low sec regions. The site has two waves of Mordu's Legion cruiser and battleship rats. They use missiles and will use different damage types to test your resistances to find the weakest one, in addition to tackling you with webs and points. Notable loot, some of it coming from the destructible structures (Guristas Research and Trade Hubs and/or Thukker Labs) which may be found in these sites, includes higher-end implants and ship skin BPCs, as well as some special module BPCs.

Cosmic signatures

Combat sites that appear as cosmic signatures must be scanned down with probes to get a warpin. These combat sites can be further divided to two groups: unrated and DED rated. The differences between the two are minor.

Unrated complexes

Unrated complexes have a good chance to contain an commander spawn that can drop faction items. They can also escalate into an expedition.

The sites contain multiple rooms separated by acceleratino gates. Each site is unique, for details see the page of indicidual site.

DED rated complexes

The structure of DED rated complexes is very similar to unrated complexes. But unlike unrated DED rated complex always contains one or more structures or overseers that can drop faction items or DED modules. DED rated complexes have vastly higher chance to drop valuable items compared to anomalies and unrated complexes. But unlike unrated complexes DED rated complexes do not normally escalate. DED rated complexes that were gained as an escalation from an anomaly are exception as they can re-escalate into same site.

DED Rated Complexes each have a difficulty rating associated with them on a ranking scale from 1/10 to 10/10. The rating can help to give a direct indication of the difficulty of the site, as well as the maximum size of ship that can be taken through the complexes acceleration gate. In general the ship hull class that can enter the site goes up by one as the rating goes up by one, until you reach 5/10.

Rating Maximum Ship Size Allowed
1/10 Frigate
2/10 Destroyer
3/10 Cruiser (Not including T3)
4/10 Battlecruiser (Not T3 Cruiser)
5+/10 Battleship

- There are no 9/10 DED Rated Complexes, some consider the [faction] Fleet Staging Point to be their equivalent.

Expeditions

Expecitions (also known as escalations) can not be found by scanning, instead they escalate from unrated complexes. When a trigger of an Unrated Complex is destroyed, there is a relatively small chance that a pop up window will open explaining that details of the location of another enemy site have been found. The site's information is then added to the journal in the expeditions tab.

When the site listed in the journal is finished, there is a chance that it will escalate farther, leading to yet another site. Most expeditions have up to 4 parts.

Chemical labs

Chemical labs are found with probe scanning. Even though the probe scanning window categorizes them as gas sites they are actually combat sites. In order to get access to the rewards the site needs to be cleared of hostiles and the containers in site need to be hacked with data analyzer.
