Drag Bubble Trouble

Bubbles play a huge role in 0.0 combat, and it is not hard to understand why interdictors are so commonly requested by fleet commanders.

However, you don’t need to be in one of these awesome vessels to deploy a bubble!

Mobile warp disruptors can be setup in 1-2 minutes (T2 bubbles anchor more quickly), and these toys open the door to a wide variety of tactics that you might otherwise not have available to you.

While anchored bubbles tend to be used most commonly in traditional large-gang gate camps (like the one pictured above), a small mobile bubble can be a great tool for solo PvP.

One of the best uses for bubbles is catching cloaked ships. By positioning yourself on the edge of your bubble, at the expected landing point, even larger ships can catch cloakers or agile frigates with ease.

Another popular trap involves lighting a cyno in a bubble and waiting for the enemy to warp in out of curiosity. This is sometimes called the “honeypot” tactic and it can be very effective.

One variation on the “honeypot” that I particularly enjoy is lighting the cyno at a well-armed POS where you can rely on anchored modules to help do your dirty work.

Finally, the combination of carefully prepared warp-ins and an in-line drag bubble can also be a great way to slow-down pursuit from hostile gangs or to prepare a devastating bombing run.

I have only recently made it habit to carry a small bubble around with me when traveling in hostile space, and I expect that it will continue to come in handy.

Having a bubble on-hand has already lead to some excellent solo kills, and I will continue posting about my experiences using these oh-so-helpful spheres.
