I am not sure which fit to choose. Snipertron is definitly better with a large fleet operation, and blastertron is nice when you have a gang to make sure your target isn't moving too fast.

But what's the weapon of choice for solo PvP?

Do i go for extra dps, or long range?

Care to help?

If you PVP solo then you're the one who has to hold down the target. So as max normal point range is 24km (and you actually really, REALLY should use a scram on a blaster BS) you'll have to attack short range. Also, others will attack you short range as well (mostly anyway) this means that fitting long range leaves you vulnerable.

Mind you, fly a BS in solo PVP is already quite vulnerable, don't have the mistaken idea that bigger=better and thus more safe, it's not. Especially not solo. Also, but this is a personal point of view; if you can't use T2 Null ammo on your blasters you shouldn't solo as it's WAY too easy to be kited. Everyone knows you'll have crap range so everyone with a brain will hover nicely deep in your falloff. Null can solve that problem.

All a solo Blasterthron is good at is catching idiots in BCs and BSs, if you want to solo a BS I'd suggest using a Dominix instead.

Well i was thinking on going against other BC's actually. But out of curiosity, what class of ship would you use in solo PvP? Battlecruiser or cruiser? I have a brutix and a thorax.

It depends on where, what and who you solo. Generally soloing is done in two distinctive ways:

1: suicide trip (quite possibly induced by being drunk) in which case you'll want something with a lot of dps like shield Brutix, indeed a BS or perhaps a Taranis, max dps thorax can also work for that

2: the "I'm actually trying to stay alive" trip; which mostly relies on kiting, there you'll want shield Vexor/Ishtar, ECM drone Thorax can work as well. This second strategy is what most solo/small gangs use for obvious reasons, and Gallente doesn't have too many good options for that.
