Hatch Breaker Limpet Controller icon

Control unit that can program a blank limpet to hack an unshielded target's hold, causing cargo ejection.

— In-Game Description

The Hatch Breaker Limpet Controller is a type of Limpet Controller module that can program limpets to hack open a targeted ship's Cargo Hatch, forcing it to jettison commodities stored in its Cargo Racks.

Usage[]

Hatch Breaker Limpets travel at 300 m/s and ignore shields. They can only be stopped by Point Defence Turrets or an Electronic Countermeasure.[1] To use, make sure that the module is equipped and bound to a fire group. Select a target, move into range as defined by the module's class and rating, and then launch the Hatch Breaker. If successful, it will attach itself to the targeted ship, hack the Cargo Hatch over a period of time, and then cause commodities to spill out of the ship's hold. This function makes Hatch Breaker Limpet Controller an invaluable tool for Pirates who are unable to coerce their prey with simple intimidation.

Hatch Breaker Limpets can also be used on Bulk Cruiser Megaship Cargo Bays and Escape Hatches. The latter usages expands the Hatch Breaker Limpet Controller's suitable roles to include Salvage and Search and Rescue.
