Low Sec PvP for Beginners : The Guide

Come pick up a free frigate and enjoy some PvP in low sec

Low Security Space in Eve Online is truly the primary place to get all-action small gang or 1 v 1 fights.

Null sec, or 0.0 space, is generally the playground of the large alliances which leaves fewer options for pilots who do not wish to be blobbed by a large gang.

So what’s the rules about low security space that a PvP beginner would need to know? This video will provide you with the answers for that question.

So, if you’re interested in trying out a little fighting in low security space, this is a great place to start.

First, I will give you a ship to start in. There’s a variety of ships, and they all use beginner friendly fits suitable for all the New Eden races.

Secondly, I’ll tell you where you can go to get these fights.

Finally, I’ll provide you with some videos which will give you some helpful tips for those starting out.

The Ships

This video will tell you all about the free ships, what they include, and how to get them.

This page will tell you what fits are on the ships.

Where to Get Fights

My suggestion is to start in Jufvitte, which is high security space (and where the free ships are located) and then jump into Ouelletta. From there, you have a number of options.

Here is a map of the area.

These systems are the home of both small PvP corps / alliances and many Faction Warfare pilots. Most of the pilots here fly frigates.

Routes I often take to look for fights are:

Ouelletta -> Heydieles.
Ouelletta -> Muetralle then to Jovainnon and beyond
Ouelletta -> Harroule
Ouelletta -> Eugales / Moclinamaud and back
Ouelletta and set a course for Eha or Ashitsu in Black Rise. FW all the way

The Fight

Most of these ships are fitted for close fights. Either brawlers (fighting at zero) or within 5km. Just try it out and learn from experience. Also there are HUNDREDS of videos about PvP. Go down that YouTube rabbit-hole at your own pace and find out everything that you need to know!

Tips

  1. No amount of guidance will give you as much experience as just getting out there and doing it.
  2. You learn more from fights that you lose than fights that you win.
  3. If possible, record your fights. Then rewatch them to see if / when you did something wrong.
  4. Range control is everything. If you can control the range of the fight to suit your weapons, you’re halfway to winning it.
  5. Always type ‘gf’ (good fight) in local after a fight. Always. It’s a basic courtesy.
  6. If you can see that your ship is about to be lost, focus on preparing to get your pod out by choosing something to warp to.
  7. If you are fighting alongside other pilots and need help, take a deep breath. Don’t just type HELP. Let them know your location, what ship(s) are aggressing you, pilot names if you can, and how far away from you they are.
  8. BE IN A FLEET. If you have other pilots coming with you, be in a fleet. This means you can warp to each other if needed.
