Sentry Drones

Sentry Drones are the Sniping drones of the Eve Universe. They typically can reach ranges over 50km, and deal more DPS than Heavy Attack Drones. Because of these benefits, they have some notable downsides.

First off, they cannot move, and once launched from your drone bay, will sit stationary. Also, their tracking speed is terrible; they are only good at hitting distant or large targets.

More information on drones can be found at Drones.


There are variants for each damage type, with Tech 2 upgrades for each. Their stats before skills are accounted for are listed below:

  • Because Sentry Drones cannot move, their use should be limited to large Remote Repair Battleship fleets, or dropped from Carriers and Dreadnaughts to deal with other similarly sized targets.
  • If you drift out of range, you have to fly your ship back to within 2500m of Sentry Drones to recall them.
  • Sentry drones are great for gatecamps; you know exactly where your enemies will appear and can position them at proper optimals to deal great damage.
  • Sentry drones are the only type of Drones that have a ship Rig Slot that gives them extra damage. For this reason, carrier pilots who can launch 10 Sentry Drones at a time can do a very high amount of DPS purely from drones alone.
