What are they, and how do they work?
Kill Rights are your chance of retribution and are provided to you in those cases where you have been wronged by another player in the eyes of CONCORD. This means that if a pilot has performed an illegal act of aggression by activating an offensive module against you, causing him to receive a Criminal flag, you will be provided with a Kill Right. Kill rights are not generated in null-security space or during Limited Engagements.
A player in possession of a kill right must activate the kill right in order to be able to use it, this will flag the opponent as a Suspect, at which point they can freely attack that player in secure space without CONCORD or local navy intervention. If the ship or capsule is destroyed while the kill right is active, the kill right will be considered as used and will be removed.
Activating kill rights
When a kill right is available to you against another pilot, it must be activated. This is done by clicking on the target in space or on your 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 he 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 him a legal target to all pilots in his 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. You can make the kill right available to all the pilots in New Eden, only members of your corporation or you can choose a specific entity (character, corporation or alliance). Players will receive a notification of changes in availability on a Kill Right where they are the target.
Making available to a specific entity
To make a kill right available to a specific entity, that is a character, corporation or alliance follow these simple steps.
Kill Report example
Kill reports for pilots killed under a kill right purchased from another player will include a "Killed on behalf of" field, which includes the name of the character in possession of the kill right activated at the time.
