EVE Manufacturing: Say hello to the Gecko heavy drone

May 6, 2014

A lighter version of the Dragonfly fighter the Gecko heavy drone is an awesome little gift from CCP for the 11th anniversary which is currently selling at 30mil per unit. We can also unlock 8 more of them up to 11 in total, so sell now before the price bottoms out unless you plan on keeping them.

It’s a high damage drone better with over twice the velocity of an Ogre II, over twice the HP and well over 2.5x the damage. The obvious down side being 50Mbit/sec rather than the usual 25Mbit/sec usage of a standard drone. Truly an awesome beast, full stats and the in game preview image are below:

Carrier pilots are the obvious user of these expect Thanatos pilots fielding 7 of them along with an Ogre II. All in all we could be talking double carrier damage from heavy drones, with drones that move faster than Hammerhead II’s and have a split omni damage profile. These things could be fun…
