I am new to ninja salvage , and playing with probes , i just cant get the probes to give me a more accurate point of warp nor scan , ie, deploy a spook probe and after scan i warp to a ship at 0 with a deviation of 2k so i know im far from the ship , i run a dir scan to 5k and it detects the ship and a bunch of wrecks and start heading in the gen direction at 30 degrees and deploy the phatom probe that suposedly is more accurate , and instead of giving me a scan of the ship that is at 2k it gives me a scan of other ships at 2AU or more
any suggestions ? skills are being worked but at the lvl im at should be a hell of a lot more accurate than that
astrometrics lvl 4
astrometrics triang lvl 2
astrometrics pinpointing lvl 2
signal aquisition lvl 3 \
I got a probing rigged ship that reduces my scan time to 339 seconds so i cant use the snoop probe yet

Get them all up to 5/4 ASAP, and use a covops. It helps loads. Also, I find fitting a mwd to my probe ship and just zooming towards them at 3km/s is effective when you can't probe them out, as long as your deviation isn't enormous (500kms+)

Hi Zeph, i suggest that you look up the corp Sisters of Eve.
they have probe launchers it will reduce ur scan time significantly. add that to ur skills and u should get under 200 sec scan time.
good luck mate and fly safe.

btw the sisters have both types of probe launchers.

You say you have 339 seconds scan time, are you sure you are using recon probe launcher, so not the normal one. You should use the recon for searching ppl, and the normal one for scanning plexes.

Not true. Exploration probes can be quite effective for ninjasalvaging.

However, if you're using spook probes, you should be using a recon launcher.

Yes but he said he was using spook and fathom probes, so he should use recon probe launcher and not a normal probe launcher.

Tbh the fact he is using recon probes and has low scan skills is part of the problem, you need good boosts to scan strengths to get the most out of recon probes so for a starter its better to just take the extra scan time and use exploration probes as at least then you'll feel your getting somewhere.

There's a difference between normal probes in normal probe launchers and recon probes in normal probe launchers.
