Bounty hunters are players who hunt other players for their bounty (hence the name). Bounty hunters are sometimes confused with Pirates due to the fact that they may kill anybody else with a good enough bounty. Another reason why bounty hunters are also seen as pirates is their ship choice. Many bounty hunters will use small fast ships that holds a variety of guns to take down the ships quickly without having the reinforcements arrive before the ship is destroyed. Pirate ship choices are very similar to bounty hunter ship choices. Ships like these include the Gideon, Cobra, and the Sixfold. Bounty hunters typically have large amounts of bounty themselves and many are skilled pilots.
