Brief History of the Shadow Vipers


The Shadow Vipers were born on the 18th of May, 2017.

We were created in the hopes of forming a family of like minded individuals who strive for professionalism and excellence, while adhering to a code of conduct that helps to give our clients a peace of mind.

We are a PvP centric organization that desires to be multi-national and operate in most if not all time-zones. Our members primarily hail from North America, with people ranging from Europe to Australia.


Alea iacta est – The die is cast


The creation of the Shadow Vipers marked the point of no return. We are an organization that will not stop and will continue to roll the dice in a universe of unforgiving possibilities.

The game is set, the pieces are known. – Let the die be cast.



Delivering Death By Stealth

“Blades of glass, ghosts of darkness.
Death from stealth, An unseen likeness.”

The Shadow Vipers are not a PMC, we are a Military Organization that values honor, teamwork, strategy and stealth. We are the brotherhood that stands by each other and delivers the fangs of death to anyone the client needs. Strategy is very important to us and stealth and teamwork is paramount to this strategy. Our tactics provide a cohesive structure for our clients to rely on. They know that whatever the task, we can accomplish it with a very light footprint.

Brotherhood and Community

“A brother left, a brother right.
Together we are, together we fight.”

The Shadow Vipers is a mature community of like minded individuals who desire a no Drama and bullshit playstyle. We want to give our clients the professionalism they desire and the results they deserve. We are a PvP centered community that includes training and jobs in all aspects of Star Citizen. Battle drills will be commonplace in between our military operations. Above all else… We are a community who not only play Star Citizen but other games as well. Bridging our teamwork into a wide variety of gameplay and styles.

Happiness, life and Beer”

Real life is always first, your family, your wife and your job always comes first before a game and we will never force you into situations that you are uncomfortable with. We just expect you to speak up, let us know what is happening and how we can help create a harmonious relationship between member and organization.

Divisional Structure


We favor roles that our members can fulfill. We have a very loose divisional structure that doesn’t carry any real weight other than identifying their respective positions. There are various disciplines that you may be able to fulfill in our organization and not all will be labeled completely on RSI because right now CIG hasn’t added enough. As such… some of these divisions will have multi-disciplines.

Now it is possible to be in various divisions in our organization but you will have to choose a main and train well for it. Although if you are a jack of all trades… you can always just dabble in every single division – as long as you declare your main.

Our divisions of the organization are as follows:


Command Operations



Those in charge of various divisions and responsibilities of the organization.


Those in charge of recruitment, overseen by the recruitment director.


Combat Operations


Special Operations Command

These guys are our shadow vipers – The stealthiest of our kind. They operate closely with Force Recon and prowler squadron. These guys are the ones who operate our Eclipses, Sabres and other stealth ships to conduct operations deep inside enemy territory without anyone knowing they are there until the bombs are dropped. A good number of these are also trained as FPS troops that operate on board prowlers to get in and get out quietly and efficiently while delivering death by stealth.

  • Bounty Hunters – Falling under the Special Operations Command, these “Shadow Hunters” are the bounty hunting arm of the org. These are one of a kind and can operate solo or with a group, they are apart of the special operations command.
  • Prowler Squadron – Falling under the Special Operations Command, This is a small group of individuals responsible for operating our squadron of prowlers. These guys are some of our best pilots and shield techs and the marines on board are some of the best.
  • Marines – Falling under Spec Ops – These are the standard foot soldiers and FPS troops at our disposal. They participate in boarding operations, ground ops and everything in between. Non-specialized and purely for FPS.
  • Heavy weapons – Falling under Spec Ops – These guys are the ones that live and breathe in Titan Armor and sleep with their railguns.

Force Recon
