^what he said. And if it can't shoot back, there is no need to dual box.

Can it be done? Sure. Should it be done? Er... not really. Bomber PvP tends to be rather fast. Either you kill them quickly or you get killed, unless you're a good pilot. But dual boxing makes good piloting difficult and making mistakes easy. Making a mistake in a bomber typically means losing your ship.

Here's a good starting tip: Fleet/wing/squad warping. Don't do it.

Solo / Dual boxing works awesome. A Pilgrim + Bomber is a deadly combo done right.

- Grab point with the bomber (no retargeting delay) and apply resolution damping to stop a lockback, start moving away.
- Point with the Pilgrim and neut it's balls off.
- Swap to range damps and orbit outside of it's ability to lock you.

You've now basically turned the Pilgrim into a decent solo boat, by solving it's two issues:
a) Retargeting delay
b) Lack of DPS

If you use two bombers, then you can use res damps against battleships. 2 bombs + overheated torp launchers and you can usually get it dead before it can lock you back. Viable mostly against targets running anoms. Use the bomber which gives a damage type bonus and find targets who won't be tanking that damage.
For example, finding an armour tanking battleship running a Sansha complex - use a hound and it will die so fast it's not even funny.

Rapier/Arazu is a pretty filthy combo.

whats the budget and skills?

A dual box setup I ran was rattler and sb. rattler goes in and aggros the room....pop drones/sentties and let her run while alt tabbed on the sb. Bomber came in and hit the BS's.


Want better times hop on the rattler and cruise missile bigger targets. Preferred cruise over torps for range since jsut wanted to wake the room up without chasing torp range. Motivated to cahse that range...torp the rattler too.


A stupid overtanked drake could work as well maybe. AFK domi setup could work as well I guess.

edti: this pve ofc
