- A conflict zone is usually set away from obstacles like asteroids, so it's less interesting visually than bounty hunting at mining sites and less fun maneuvering. Asteroids can also be a tactical resource.
- Conflict zones are more risky (as well as being more exciting/more stressful, depending on your point of view!) as you can suddenly be set upon by half a dozen heavily armed ships. This doesn't happen, at least not to that extent, when bounty hunting at mining sites.
- The frequency of kills in conflict zones tends to be less than when bounty hunting, despite the number of targets, as it's harder to isolate a single target and stay clear of the others.
- The reward per kill in conflict zones seems less than when bounty hunting. Apparently criminals bring in bigger profits than mercenaries.
