Video: Dead Men Tell No Tales solo in Stealth Bomber

I've been recording my attempts at Gallente Faction Warfare missions of various levels and wanted to share this one specifically. If you're Gallente FW pilot and the lure of those 50,000 loyalty points rewards (in tier 3, which we usually are) has been countered by the crushing need to train up to a Proteus, Tengu or blingy Hecate, look no further.

You can run Dead Men Tell No Tales solo in a stealth bomber costing (see fit below) about 30M ISK. Simply orbit the Caldari Tactical Command Post at 50-55km, activate your afterburner and open fire. Make sure you see Large Collideable Objects in your overview, if you don't see it when you land.

When you've done a significant amount of damage to the target, reinforcements will arrive. You may want to overheat your torpedoes and afterburner at this point, to lessen the incoming damage. Ideally you would like to kill the target in the first attempt!  If you have to leave, repair and come back, another player may be waiting for you at the site, since the beacon identifying the mission is visible to everyone when you warp to it.

Dead Men is one of ten missions on offer from you friendly Level 4 FW mission agents, so you may need to ask several agents (twice, don't forget you can ask twice!) before it gets assigned.

You can also do Cutting the Net in a Tristan, but you need to carry an object back to the agent for that one to complete successfully. Dead Men can be turned in at any station after you have blown up the tower.

Now go forth and get rich! At the time of writing our LP are worth about 1100 ISK each if you buy certain datacores, Comets, Navy Maulus, or 1200 isk each for Fed Navy drones; Hammerhead, Ogre and Hobgoblin. Prices fluctuate, so check before buying!
