The best mining laser for a Badger II is an Osprey.

You're setting yourself up for failure doin that.

A Badger is an industrial ship intended for hauling goods and sometimes used for PvP silliness.
It is NOT intended nor recommended to serve as a mining ship.

Even if you strap on the best mining lazer to your Badger, you'll quickly discover just how long it takes to fill your cargo hold. A mining cruiser can mine the same volume of ore in a fraction of the time it would take an industrial ship to mine.

You're much better off getting an Osprey and mining with it instead of mining in a Badger. Don't believe me? Go ahead and mine in a Badger. You'll end up saying to yourself "wow mining really sucks and is boring plus the pay is awful".

When that happens, remember that you're doing it wrong.

Miner II/Gallente Mining Laser.

What he's looking for is something he can set in a belt, turn on the laser, go to sleep, wake up the next day, log in, and get ore. not a bad plan tbh. except it's Hulkageddon.

Its how I got my start, Bestower with a mining laser orbiting an asteroid for hours. Thought I was a genius among tards.

actually it's a great idea. just be sure you're in a low-traffic area, not Hulkageddon, fit cheaply, etc. It's just a little bit more ISK while you're offline. not enough for me to really be interested in it anymore, but meh

Yeah I did this too, you should only be doing it for fully afk income as the mining laser will take ages to fill up your cargo, but I wouldn't recommend training Mining too high if you plan to be a combat pilot in the future, just train it to 3 (takes a really short while) and use a meta 4 mining laser.

Right click->show info -> variations->compare.

Jeez if you're too lazy to do even that, then please stop playing EVE and go do something else.

in todays eve you will just get ganked after 15 minutes of your mining endeavour.

The important answer is no. Strip miners cannot be fitted to non-specialised hulls like the badger. You will be limited to one of the mining laser turrets.

Yeah when I first started playing EVE, I got a Sigil, slapped a mining laser on it, pointed it at a roid, and took a nap.

I wouldn't recommend it during Hulkageddon, and it's not an ideal solution. Mining cruisers are better. Find a quiet system, mine, jetcan, haul when the can is full.

Well, the badger has 5,000m3 of space compared to my mining barge, the retriever, which only has 1,900m3 of space. And it would only take 17 hours of training for me to hop into the badger.


I make good hauls as it is without being ganked with my retriever. But I just want to increase my load capacity.

.....really? A BADGER?

Why not spend a few hours to get into an Iteron 3, which has comparable storage capacities, then a little bit longer to get an Iteron V, which has, hands down, the BEST storage of ANY T1 Indy.

Hell, I can rig/fit it with 2 WCS and T2 spanders and it'll still hold 23k m3.

and that's why I LOVE my 30M throwaway blockade runners (30m vs 200m...hmm.....)

I honestly think every player has gone through the Mining with an Industrial-phase.

In my nooblet mind it seemed like a genius idea.

Space. It seems to go on and on forever. But then you get to the end and a gorilla starts throwing barrels at you.

I did this in an iteron V years ago. I would set it on a big roid and then go to work. When I returned the hold was full of veld. You don't earn much, but it's better than nothing when you're just starting out Bear.

Sure, you'll have more load capacity, but you'll kill your mining rate. Overall, it's not worth it as, despite having to travel backwards and forwards to drop off your cargo in your Retriever, you'll get more ore for time spent mining and travelling etc in your retriever than in your badger.

If you want a bigger load capacity, work towards a covetor and then eventually a hulk and fit them with cargo rigs/mods.
