This Eve Online ship fitting guide will cover the Slasher Minmatar fast attack combat frigate. With bonuses similar to the Rifter, benefitting projectile turrets, the Slasher benefits from a high base speed, allowing a Slasher fitting the ability to quickly tackle or engage an enemy vessel, and either keep a speed tank, or quickly leave the area and put distance if the vessel takes too much damage or becomes outclassed. The affordability of this model also makes this an easily replaceable ship in Eve Online.
The Slasher is described in Eve Online as: “The Slasher is cheap, but versatile. It’s been manufactured en masse, making it one of the most common vessels in Minmatar space. The Slasher is extremely fast, with decent armaments, and is popular amongst budding pirates and smugglers.” The Slasher receives two bonuses for each level in the Minmatar Frigate skill, the first being a 5% bonus to Small Projectile Turret damage and a 7.5% bonus to Small Projectile Turret tracking speed. New Minmatar pilots starting out in Eve Online will be able to fly the Slasher immediately due to the low skill requirements of Minmatar Frigate level 2 and Spaceship Command level 1. Eve Online recommend the following skill certifications to maximize potential fitting options; Core Competency, High-Velocity Helmsman, Propulsion Jammer Operator and Frigate Projectile Turrets.
The Slasher is quite the affordable vessel, running about 45,000 Isk in the Eve Online market, and the ship’s fitting attributes are as follows:
Fitting Slots: 1 Low, 2 Medium, 3 High (2 Turret and 1 Launcher hardpoints) 3 rig slots

Eve Online Fitting: “Slasher: Newbie Ship”
This Slasher fitting submitted by Filandil is designed as an affordable fitting for the fresh Minmatar Capsuleer in Eve Online. Costing only about 93 thousand Isk for the ship and fittings this is a vessel capable of being purchased and flown the same day a new player starts their character. An afterburner capitalizes on the Slasher’s speed and Damage Control I plus a Small Shield Booster I help to maintain the hit points of this vessel. Equipping a Small Nosferatu allows pilots to drain their enemies cap reserves to replenish their own for the use of the Small Shield Booster.
