Blaster is an assault Drone. It creates an explosion that damages nearby enemies when the tank is destroyed.

Garage description

Receiving fatal damage or self-destructing causes the tank to explode, damaging all nearby enemies. Self-destruction takes less time. Using Boosted Damage consumes additional supplies of the same type.


Mechanics

When the tank is destroyed, the tank blows up causing significant damage with moderate impact force within a 12 - 15 radius.

  • Icon drone explosion damage.png - Explosive damage (hp): 1500 → 3000
  • 66908195.png - Radius of maximum splash damage (m): 5 → 7
  • 66908195.png - Radius of minimum splash damage (m): 12 → 15
  • Maximum damage radius (m): 2.5
  • 640064ae.png - Impact force (conv. units): 150
  • Aa368db1.png - Weak damage (%): 20
  • Minimum splash damage (%): 10
  • Inventory double power.png- Boosted Damage consumed: 1
  • Icon Self.png - Delay before self-destruction (sec): 1 (-66.7%)
  • Icon drone reload.png - Recharge (sec): 3


Additionally, like all Drones, Blaster provides a passive bonus to the strength of Boosted Armor and Boosted Damage:

  • DA symbol.png Boosted Armor supply's effect strength (%): 50 → 100
  • DD symbol.png Boosted Damage supply's effect increase (%): 50 → 100


Pros and Cons

Plus.png Pairs well with light hulls that can easily get in the middle of several enemy tanks
Plus.png Good last line of defense, since it can take out enemies that would otherwise score after you died
Plus.png Can cause some enemies to avoid or delay killing you to prevent themselves from being blown up
Minus.png Useless if killed from a distance


Tips and Advice

  • Try to avoid traveling in exposed areas - if you're killed at long range, you won't destroy anyone with your drone
  • Blaster's damage is increased by Boosted Damage, so make sure you activate the supply before dying
  • Blaster's range is counted from the center of your tank, so you need to be nearly touching an enemy to deal full damage
  • This drone is fantastic for attacking in Assault mode - pair it with a light hull, and even if your capture isn't successful, you'll always take out a couple of defenders when you're killed
  • The fast self-destruction is useful for taking out anyone who isn't trying to kill you (like a flag carrier or a wise Juggernaut who has low HP), but use it sparingly - you still lose 10 points from your score
  • If you have an augment or an overdrive that can apply the AP status effect to your enemy before you blow up, it can prevent them from lowering the damage you deal with boosted armor or protection modules from your turret


Micro-upgrades

Like all Drones, Blaster can be micro-upgraded to a total of 20 steps.
