I'm not talking about baiting in terms of a drake sitting on a gate for a blob, I'm referring to taking seemingly innocent, even noncombat ships and and sticking pvp mods on them to bait carebears and even other pirates.

The pvp hulk and the battle badger come to mind, though still unable to use either yet I decided to go out in a burst and see if I could get aggro'd.

To make a long story short, I found either a retriever using a yellow Iteron IV alt or a pirate and a carebear with similar names. I flipped the miner's can and let the pirate approach then targeted him with a passive scanner cuz I wasn't sure how long a noncombat frig would take for a lock.

The Iteron turned red and I scrammed and shot it. Tried for a ransom but he blocked me, which was kind of a shame because I wanted to the reaction of negative sec'er getting pwned by highsec scrub in a mining ship.

Anyway, the importart is that near the end of the fight, the retreiver aggro'd me. I couldn't tank his drones so I popped the Iteron, grabbed the t2 mods he had on it and bailed.

So, anyone ever done this? And as a strategy how viable do you think it is.

And again, I was in a mining frig that couldn't even tank drones so nobody can accuse me of picking on anyone who couldn't fight back (even the Iteron had a gun on it).

Here was my fit for the burst:

200mm autocannon I x2
Passive targeter
Warp scrambler
Gyrostabilizer I
Phased plasma ammo

Maybe it's my low SP or just my choices, but I couldn't even fit a 1mn afterburner on this thing. I'm thinking about jury-rigging some shield stuff to try fighting drones next time.

Realistically I do not think that the Burst is capable of doing what you want it to do. However, if you want to try it again you might want to try something like the following. You don't need a burner to keep up with an industrial or mining barge. Switch to sabot or DU rounds and shoot their drones as soon as they aggro, while keeping the ship scrammed. When the drones are dead, switch to short range ammo and hit the main target.

[Burst - Buffer]
2x 200mm autocannons
Medium azeotropic shield extender
ship scanner OR passive targeter
warp scrambler
auxiliary power core
2x anti-thermal screens (for hobgoblins)
core defense field extender

Use named autocannons. The extra 5 DPS you're going to get is actually a big improvement over unnamed, in the context of, you know a Burst that's been fit for PvP Cool

The Celestis, Bellicose, and Arbitrator are all effective bait ships for taking down AFs and inties. Just sit aligned in a belt and wait.

Ahhh the classic baitsprey. I shove a mining laser on plus 2 x Assault II with a neut in highs but my fit is more or less the same as yours. Makes it look a bit more plausible with a can hanging out and a mining laser going. Razz

The only time I've come unstuck with this was when someone pulled the orca trick on me. Osprey v Deimos didn't go very well for me.

If you want to trap ships you should try the interdictor or heavy interdictor.

Expected a topic about male ships made to look like female ships, left disappointed.

I have been wanting to try this for a while. I'm a stupid lowsec miner, really!

Drones to taste.

Could stick blasters on there or something as desired. Tracking won't be an issue with the 2 webs.
