In this article, I compare how the stats of the Rifter stack up when compared to the other T1 frigates for learning how to solo PvP. I also look at how the Rifter can beat those T1 frigates in a solo fight and what lessons the Rifter can teach. The fits for the ships I am comparing the Rifter to can be found in this document. I also assumed that the players who are using this downgraded fit would have no level V skills, but many level IVs.

This shows how each ship would perform for a player with lower skill. The Rifter fit I will be using in this guide is: No ship teaches solo PvP better than the Rifter. The Minmatar frigate stands out from the rest of the pack due to its ability to win in a multitude of situations and its stunning cost efficiency. No other frigate can be used in as many situations as the Rifter due to its hull bonuses as well as its usage of the autocannon weapon type.

The frigate boasts an impressive falloff range of 11km with autocannons with a m optimal range.

This allows the ship to be both a close range brawler as well as a long range kiter. Besides the boost in falloff range, the hull traits allow the frigate to make up for its limited weapons capabilities. The Rifter can also tank better than most other T1 frigates. The Rifter can also use its repairer as a way to take full advantage of its balanced resists.

The other T1 frigates beat out the Rifter in certain aspects, but lose out in many others. The Amarr Executioner has better DPS of and max speedbut a little over half the amount of tank than that of the Rifter. It also has a much better optimal range of 9.

This means that the Executioner only teaches how to maintain range; whereas the Rifter teaches how to angle the ship, so that one gets maximum damage, and how to rapidly close gaps.


The Merlin, a great brawling frigate, has a better DPS of and a better capacitor, however, it has near no regen and a low falloff of 3. This enables the pilot to tear through the ship by using the correct damage type. In this situation, the Merlin only teaches how to close the gap, whereas the Rifter teaches the pilot how to maintain distance around a target and how to use the right damage type based on the tank type and resistance.

The Caldari Condor is the best frigate for kiting.

evs It beats every other frigate when it has the time to set up inside of a Plex. However, when this range is broken, the Condor crumples faster than every other frigate. It only has an EHP of with poor overall resists. While the MWD can be an outstanding tool for maintaining range, it can also dig its own grave if the target is able to close the gap. The Rifter, can teach pilots how to make safes that are able to enter the Plex without the use of an acceleration gate and how to avoid bad evd.

Those ships can all crush the Rifter in speed, tank, damage, and skill cap. However the average price of the three ships is about 22 million ISK. This trio is also limited in the amount of possible ways one can fly each of them. For instance, the Slicer requires that the pilot kite with its exceptional speed.

PVP Fit Rifter

When looking only at these three, it onlline quite clear that for a capsuleer learning how to solo PvP, the Rifter can both teach and save more. This does not apply solely to the top solo PvP ships. Comparable fits for the aforementioned Executioner costs 5. The Merlin costs 3. The Condor costs 6. But it can only teach the pilot one aspect of PvP. The Rifter can teach 6 aspects of PvP.

For an aspiring solo PvPer; a cheap ship that can teach more than one aspect of PvP is invaluable.

Rifter (Minmatar Republic Frigate)

Another perk of a cheap ship for learning how to PvP is when a evf is lost. When you die, it is easier to learn from your mistakes if you are not raging over the amount of ISK you lost! I would also like to say that I am in no way a god onliine solo PvP, or that the Rifter is the best solo PvP ship out there. It really is not.


It is far from the best solo PvP ship, but it is the best solo PvP ship when it comes to learning. Think of it as a training hull. For the low price of 3. It allows the player to learn lessons that they can transfer over to better solo ships. Todays Rifter is a weak shadow of what it used to be. My Minmatar heart breaks when i see what has been done to this hull over the years.
