This Eve Online ship fitting guide will cover the Minmatar Breacher. The Breacher is designed to be a long range attack frigate specializing in missile technology thanks to the bonuses it receives towards ship fitting using launcher modules. Slightly weaker than its Eve Online counterparts the Kestrel and Inquisitor in terms of overall hit points, the Breacher makes up for this by giving Capsuleers faster speed and better handling to benefit speed tank fitting or simply keeping the enemies at range. This frigate favors explosive missiles, being the favored damage type of the Minmatar in Eve Online.
The Breacher is described in Eve Online as: “The Breacher’s structure is little more than a fragile scrapheap, but the ship’s missile launcher hardpoints and superior sensors have placed it among the most valued Minmatar frigates when it comes to long range combat.” The Breacher receives a bonus of 10% to Explosive missile damage and 5% bonus to EM, Thermal and Kinetic missile damage per skill level in Minmatar Frigate. Pilots wanting to fly the Breacher will need to train Minmatar frigate Level 3 and Spaceship Command level 1. To maximize potential fitting options of the Breacher, Eve online recommends the following certifications; Core Competency, Armor Tanking and Frigate Launcher Control.

Eve Online Fitting: Low Level Mission Breacher
This Breacher fitting by mcsul gives a great a basic fitting arrangement for new Eve Online players who have yet to amass the necessary skill points to fit and power tech 2 modules. This fitting capitalizes on the missile damage bonus granted to the Breacher by fitting 3 launchers, and instead of a turret, there is a sensor booster to allow a greater range of targeting and engagement. Although the estimated cost for this fitting is 2.6 million, this price can be dropped significantly by over 80% by dropping the rig modules, although DPS would suffer as a result.
