Arrest and Execute is the primary form of combat currently used against different players. It is more a form of police action than ful blown combat, and as such there are a number of restrictions on who can use it, and where.

What Do I Need?

In order to be able to perform an arrest and an execution, you need to meet some requirements:

  • Be a member of a faction
  • Have the 'Arrest' Privilege
  • Have a pair of Stun Cuffs or Binders equipped in your hands (if arresting a player)
  • Alternatively have a restraining bolt if droids are being transported.
  • Meet one of the territory requirements below.

Binders Stun Cuffs Restraining Bolts

Note: Stun Cuffs can be used repeatedly while binders are single use only and will break of the character inside them is released or executed. Restraining bolts are also currently unimplemented and only work on droids.

Government, Mercenaries, Bounty Hunter and Security Factions

These four factions are special in that they can arrest over a large variety of locations. They can both arrest their own members and NPCs (called In Faction arrest, or IF A/E) at any time, and in any location, regardless of which faction's territory they are in. They can arrest the members and NPCs of other factions and players (called Out Of Faction arrest, or OOF A/E) in the following areas:

  • Any planet they control
  • Any system they control
  • Any sector they control
  • Any capital ship they own
  • Any space station they own
  • Deep Space and uncontrolled sectors

These factions can also be authorised by other factions to be able to perform OOF arrests in any of their terrain, classified as below.

All Other Factions

All other factions are limited to arresting their own members (called In Faction arrest, or IF A/E). They can arrest their own members and NPCs at any time, and in any location, regardless of which faction's territory they are in. They can authorise Government, Mercenaries, Bounty Hunter and Security factions to arrest in their territory however, classified as the following areas:

  • Any planet they control
  • Any system they control
  • Any sector they control
  • Any capital ship they own
  • Any space station they own

Special Exceptions

There are several special conditions that modify who can arrest at a location:

  • Uncontrolled systems are considered territory for the faction that controls the sector it is in
  • Uncontrolled planets are considered territory for the faction that controls the system it is in
  • Capital ships in hyperspace are considered territory for the faction that owns it, otherwise no arrest is possible in hyperspace
  • Docked entities that are inside a Capital ship or Space Station are considered territory of the faction that owns the Capital ship or Space Station
  • The square above a planet is considered territory of that planet's controller, regardless of if the system controller is different

How Do I Arrest?

Issuing a Warrant

When Arrested

When a player is arrested, the player cannot access the inventory screen, travel (unless moved by another player through his party), or manage one's faction. After a period of time, if the player's character has not been executed but remains under arrest, the player is given the option to drop the character, wait a week, and recreate.

The player cannot break out of the cuffs, nor can another player merely remove them. To free a character, another player of the arresting faction (with the appropriate privileges) or a player with an Electronic Lock Breaker may attempt to free you.
