New Cobra owners should prioritise defensive items first – Power Distribution, bulkheads and shields. Then upgrade the guns πŸ˜‰ With this loadout you can beat most NPC’s and successfully run from the really bad ones. You can do missions that are available to your rank, and you can trade, smuggle and explore.

Please note that this loadout is not a mining loadout… I don’t think the Cobra is good as a mining ship… you probably need something a bit bigger to make mining profitable!


    1. Hi Fenris – I posted this following a chat with a friend while playing. He was trying to help a couple of noobs πŸ™‚ Did you already set that up for me in the coriolis website? In which case I just saved it… πŸ™‚
