We'll have to send some 'techs' onsite to, uh, diagnose the problem with the Rattler. What system was that again?

I'm not all that sure you can do much better than a rattlesnake. paladin or nightmare would probably be next best. pretty easy to get both over 1k gun dps. although at that point you can probably get 1500 out of a rattlesnake. although since your post got censored, I'm not sure if you are saying your rattlesnake has too much tank, or not enough.

well there is always the option of having a few characters in smartbomb battleships that kill everything as it spawns. Or get a carrier.

The Rattlesnake is one of the BEST Blood Ratting ships.

You can passive tank it, so neuts don't matter. It gets a tanking bonus. It uses drones and missiles so the tracking disrupting Blood Raiders do doesn't affect you at all. It gets bonus to Thermal Damage (sure, BRs are weaker against EM, but the bonus makes up for that). It has a lot of mid slots for nice things like the MJD, target painters or mods that help drones while still having enough mids for tank.

if you are only getting 975 DPs out of a rattlesnake, you're doing something way way wrong lol. I was in INIT mercs not too long ago and ratted my ass off in one in Querious, and that was before (and after) the recent buffing.

1280 DPS with my skills and +3% missile hardwirings, warp in at 70, kill frigs with sentries before they get close, kill neuting battleships/cruisers before they get in range, sit back and count the isk lol. MJD is there for extra "GTFO" juice, don't really need it if you pay attention though so can replace it with more tank or another TP and use FURY missiles for more DPS vs battleships or a drone tracking link.
