Hi,Im currently working on a myrmidon for a pvp fights and not long ago a friend of mine was working in a sniper myrmidon.

Although a myrm obviously dont have bonus for turrents i did saw a advantage on his tatic, and i begin to wonder if there isn`t a list of skills i should work out to get my range/turrent damange and my drones speed/damange/resistance.

If possible i would like a specific type of drone i could use to help in this kind of tatic im planning to use with my myrm.

im currently using artillary guns to save cap.

any help will be appriciate and any more questions about the ship will be good as well.

thanks in advance.

The Dominix can be a fairly effective sniper, using sentry drones. You will need Omnidirectional Tracking Links, and Sensor Boosters. Wardens can be effective to about 100km I believe. The Mymridon doesn't have enough bandwith to use sentries unfortunately. You can also fit some 425 rails to the Dominix for even more damage as well.

Somehow this tickled my fancy - 2 minutes in EFT yield something that looks like this:

Myrm - Warden sniper

2x Signal Amplifier II
2x Co-processor II
Damage control II
Nanofiber Internal Structure II

Sensor Booster II (Targeting range script)
4x Omnidirectional Tracking link

6x Drone link Augmentor

Medium Drone Control Range Augmentor I
Medium Drone Scope Chip I
Medium Ionic Field Projector I

3x Warden II

You can probably play around with this a bit but in practice you have (with all V skills)

Targeting range - 203 km
Drone control range - 195 km
Warden II optimal range - 178 km

Whether or not this is feasible in a PVP situation or with your current skills is a completely different story.

Not really A PVE expert, but I am sure I used to have 4, or 5 sentries on my myrm.
guessing Myrm got hit by the nerf hammer.

Yes. Four years ago. Same patch that introduced Marauders and scripts.

As for an actual sniper Myrm... no. Kiting, sure. Sniping no.
