I know other biggy tech 2 ships (like titans) are, but there's nothing on here saying that the charon and its ilk are.

If they're not, then how easy are they to warp jam? I only ask as I was thinking of flying one and I want to know whether I'm going to get jammed and slowly reduced to mincemeat the minute I come through a gate in lowsec!

There's been a load of stuff on here about "freighter containment fields" but I have no idea what that's going on about...Embarassed

freighters have no ability to fit warp core stabs. so yes. you can be scrambled very easily.

And size counts for nothing? So an inty could pin a freighter? Where's the sense in that?!Shocked

Ah well. Guess it's another case of solo player loses out...Sad

Don't ever fly a freighter into lowsec without escort or atleast a scout.

You are just asking to get ganked if you do so

The inty pilot is paying the same monthly fee you are; why should your ship be completely immune to his?

Guess it's another case of solo player wants solopwnmobile and can't have it. Make friends or make compromises; big ships need support.

well no lone pilot could solo destroy a freighter with an escort due to the raw HP of the freighter save for a sniper out of range of the escorts but then again snipers cant lock you down.

however untill they get the loot system fixed unless its a war target its 100% pointless to bother with a freighter as you get nothing to sell and the whole point of piracy is to steal goods from the person for your own profits.

but i wouldnt fly even a Tech 2 hauler with valueable items in low or no sec without wingmen.
