The Guristas Military Complex is a Cosmic Signature of the Unrated Complex type, occupied by the Guristas pirate faction. It can be found via exploration by probing in Nullsec systems. For location details see Pirate Faction Occupancy Chart.

The site consists of a volume of space with an acceleration gate and contains various structures and their defending pirates. Using the gate allows access to other areas within the site. When attacked, the defenders may send multiple waves of reinforcements. Each group's appearance is triggered by the destruction of members of the previous group. The names and amount of ships listed may vary slightly, but will always be of Battleship class or smaller.

This site's acceleration gate allows only Battleship? class ships or lower and their Tech 2 equivalents to enter the site.

A force-field surrounds the acceleration gate, preventing its use. The field must be destroyed to progress further; beware however, that there is powerful explosion when it is destroyed.

Killing the Dread Guristas Battleship Commander or the Deep Space Stronghold may cause an escalation to the expedition known as Pirate's Path. The expedition's locations are all in null sec. The pirate commanders which are often found at these locations may carry Pith A-Type modules. If escalation occurs, the following message appears:

"Going through the logs from one of the command ships you blasted, you come across a recent memo containing a draft for a plan where forces from this Military Complex and another similar to this one were to gang up and raid a space trucker station somewhere in the region. Where this space trucker station is, is not included in the logs, but the location of the rally point is there. It is supposed to be by a small asteroid belt, not too far away."
