Kill rights are a pilot's chance of retribution and are provided in cases where they have been wronged by another individual in the eyes of CONCORD. This means that if a pilot has performed an illegal act of aggression by activating an offensive module against another pilot, causing the attacking individual to receive a Criminal flag, the victim will be provided with a kill right. Kill rights are generated even if the attack does not result in the destruction of the targeted ship or capsule. Kill rights are however not generated in null-security space or during limited engagements.
As criminal flags will only be issued in low sec when attacking a capsule, this will be the only situation where kill rights will be granted for attacks in low security space.
Activating kill rights
When a kill right is available against another pilot, it must be activated. This is done by clicking on the target in space or on the overview, and clicking on the cross hair icon in the 'Selected Item' window located above the overview by default.
If the kill right belongs to another player they may have requested that ISK be required to activate the kill right, the cost will be displayed in the activation window. Any price requested for the kill right is immediately transferred upon the kill right being activated. Activating the kill right will enact a Suspect flag on the target, making them a legal target to all pilots in their vicinity for 15 minutes. If the kill right activation does not result in a kill, then the kill right will not be considered as used and will continue to be available for activation.
Selling kill rights
Owners of kill rights can choose to sell access to their rights to other pilots, this can be done by clicking the button on the right-hand side of each kill right in the character sheet. Pilots may make the kill right available to everyone in New Eden. This option can be limited to make the kill right only available to a specific corporation, alliance or an individual character.
Players will receive a notification of changes in availability on a Kill Right where they are the target.
