So if you scan a clean ship in independent space and it shows a bounty, you can’t shoot it?

If it comes up as wanted with a basic scan then nothing has changed, it's just the KWS that been played with.

In some ways the KWS scanner works like it used to, when you KWS a ship it shows the extra bounties from all over the place, however the biggest change is when dealing with clean ships.

Now (assuming I've understood it correctly, yet to actually test it) when you KWS a clean ship it will show any bounties that do not apply to the current system you are in (like it used to before they changed it a few patches back).

But now if one of those bounties was issued by a faction aligned to the same power as the one that controls the system you are in then it validates the bounty and legitimises the kill.

So, if you are in a Fed system and a clean ship has a bounty from a different Fed controlled system they should become wanted when you KWS them, Empire for Empire, and (in theory) Independent for Independent.

However, the KWS seems to pick up all bounties, even ones that you can't legally claim in the system you are currently in, so you still need to wait for the ship to show up as wanted (I think, needs to be tested).

TL:DR - wanted ships are still wanted, the KWS works like it used to, you now have the chance to trigger a wanted status on a clean ship using the KWS if it has the right type of bounty from another system.

I think that's about it........

It also would explain the other night when in a wing and a ship was KWS'd......(High Rez)

Came up as wanted.......Target was called.....We attacked and all fecking hell broke loose......

I think now I would say only KWS after the passive......

As said I only do that anyway....But seems even more important now.........

I haven't seen that, but I recently found where the Galaxy Map can't make up its mind whether the Guardians own a particular system.
