Scan the Can can be modified into a scanning event of any kind: probing down drones, MTUs, mobile depots or ships. This event's also a good exercise in scanning/combat probing, which applies to a bunch of other PvE and PvP activities in Eve.

Objectives

Scan the Can usually involves participants competing to probe an object down the fastest. See the Variations segment for more.

Requirements

  • Every participant needs a combat probing fit. Providing everybody with the same pre-made fit makes the event more newbie-friendly and levels the playing field a little.
  • There are no required skills for this event that new players don't already have by default, but you can decrease your scanning time by training a couple of related skills (see Additional information).
  • If this is your first time combat probing, take a look at the wiki's page on scanning.

Fittings

This beginner explorer fit works as a good base for the level playing field version of a scanning event. Herons can be swapped out for Imicuses, Probes or Magnates depending on which faction the player has the highest frigate skill with.

Event variations

  • 1: Participants have a limited amount of time to scan down a specific number of objects (ex., mobile depots or drones) in the same system. Small secure containers anchored near these objects can hold tokens of proof (cheap items like passengers/Quafe/snowballs/carbon), which the participants can collect and turn in at the end of the event to claim prizes.
  • 2: Another variation of this could be stocking the containers with the prizes themselves (low volume items like skilboooks, skins and some valuable modules are a good idea).
  • 3: For an additional layer to the event, password protect the secure containers and make hints available to the participants.
  • 4: Prior to the removal of bookmarks as an item, one variation of the event involved participants scanning down one object in a starting system and finding a bookmark leading to another system. They travel to that system, scan another object down and find another bookmark. Participants are awarded prizes based in order of completion of the trail. See Warp races for more.
  • 5: Hunt the Wumpus is also a combat probing event, with ships as the objects to be scanned down.
  • 6: HORSE is a variation of a Scan the can event, with the anchored cans holding industrial components of a BPC.

Additional information

  • For participants: set your probe window filter to show 'deployables' alone (or 'ships' or 'drones' depending on the event's objectives).
  • If you scan an unrelated object down, ignore that result so you won't scan it again by accident. It won't show up in your results again for as long as both you and the object are in space together.
  • Train Astrometric Acquisition, Astrometric Pinpointing, and Astrometric Rangefinding to reduce your scanning time.
