Just a question here: how do you complete silent the informant level 2 with your rifter? I tried several time and I keep getting pawned by the 4 missile frigs at the gate in stage 2. Don't really bother anymore as I stoped trying and did them in punisher and now in rupture/stabber, but still would be interested in knowing, I could certainly learn from your tactics to flight better my rifter :)
The drone part isn't too bad, unless I pick up the entire level, then I warp out and back in.
On the second floor, I turn on my Cold-Gas whatever named Afterburner and charge the nearest big ship. I orbit the biggest ship at 500 while blasting at any other ship within 4000km, once I take them down I focus on the bigger ones. Most of the ships use Flameburst missiles, and I'm built for armor tanking. My shields are gone in 2-3 hits, but the armor holds up usually. Again, sometimes I get too much aggro and I need to warp, but I've yet to need to retreat and repair. I always just warp to a belt and warp back.
My current build is:
Hi: 1x 150mm light 'scout' autocannon
2x 200mm light prototype automatic cannon (couldn't afford scouts)
1x Arbalest Rocket launcher
Med: Cold-Gas something, 120% tech1 afterburner
Fixed-Parallel Link Capacitor I
Low: 200mm reinforced rolled tungsten plate
Small something polarized armor repair
Once I get engineering 4, it'll be 3x 200mm light scout, but by the time I have engineering 4, my new Succubus will be fully equipped and Rifter will be on hold until I get my Wolf.
