Rifter | EVE Online

Rifter

With a service record dating back to a time when the Minmatar Republic as it is known today was only a pipe dream in the minds of those who opposed the Amarr Empire, the Rifter is a nimble and hard-hitting ships with a storied history in the world of EVE.

The Rifter is a very powerful combat frigate and can easily tackle the best frigates out there. It has gone through many radical design phases since its inauguration during the Minmatar Rebellion. The Rifter has a wide variety of offensive capabilities, making it an unpredictable and potent adversary.

Perhaps the most iconic frigate design in New Eden, the Rifter focuses on sheer damage output and application – with bonuses to both the rate of fire and falloff range of Projectile turrets. What it lacks in defense, however, is made up for in sheer speed, which can be taken advantage of when fitting an Afterburner to maintain a high speed while keeping the ship’s signature low – thus decreasing its chance to be hit by enemy weapons.
