Looking for Idea's

Postby MFH ToK3R » Thu Mar 08, 2018 4:43 pm

Hey Everyone, I'm currently debating between buying a Hauler or an Adder. I'm a little low on credits for a Cobra MK III but sitting around 250,000cr right now. Mostly planning on doing trading missions but would like to be able to defend myself if necessary. So just curious on what peoples opinions would be on these options. If you have any other ships I've overlooked, let me know! Also wondering what kind of missions to do for trader rank, I've been doing the data delivery missions in an Eagle and just got "Mostly Penniless". Thanks

Consider this...

Hauler has.. one SMALL hardpoint...

Now, depending on what you call "defending yourself", the choice may become more clear :)

I didn't think the poor crafts were that un-armed! Thank you for the input, looks like I'll be flying a new to me Adder this evening!

I would prefer the hauler to an adder.
Seriously.

Neither will be any good in a fight. In fact about fights.

There isn't many real mistakes to be made. Just try whatever out for yourself.

the Adder has a bit more cargo, is faster, has stronger shields and is better armed.
Hauler has only better jump range.

Adder for me, the only reason to have the Hauler is the jump range, or if you can't afford an Adder.

I went Sidey -> Freegle -> Adder -> ... and found it a competent all rounder, even did a bit of bounty hunting in it, mind you that was a long long time ago now (ah, happy days)

Just a quick update. The Adder served me well, used it for a couple of days trading, made an explorer out of a hauler and did a small 100LY round trip. Between the two ships I made enough credits to move on up to a T6 and am currently sitting at a Dealer Rank thanks to filling my mission log with delivery missions and trucking from LHS 3447 to GD 215 and back to Eravate. Thanks for the help guys!

Cool man, I liked the adder as well, but went from a sidey to a cobra by stealing police kills at a nav point. I tried to make it respectable by jumping into the fight when their target was down to 75% hull, but I was a kill thief none the less.

In general, don't skip ships! When you move up, it's hard to justify going back to try 'lesser' ships. My two cents.

Just to make it clear though, he can still skip to his ships.




I do.
