Booster is an assault Drone. It briefly increases the strength of Boosted Damage DD symbol.png and reduces its cooldown. Active effect is indicated by the Icon DD.png symbol in battle.

Garage description

After using Boosted Damage increases the effect for a short time.


Mechanics

Booster's effect is triggered by activating the Boosted Damage supply or picking up a boosted damage box. The strength of boosted damage is only increased for 3 seconds, so be ready to hit an enemy!

Additionally, Booster reduces the cooldown of Boosted Damage from 30 to 20 seconds. Each subsequent Supply (other than BD) activated reduces Boosted Damage's cooldown by another 10 seconds. Strategic use of Smart Cooldowns allows one to keep Boosted Damage active perpetually.

This Drone consumes a total of 3 pieces of Boosted Damage when activated.

  • Supply Time.png - Power up duration (sec): 3
  • Icon DD.png - Additional supply power (%): 100 → 200
  • Icon drone supply reload speed increase.png - Reduction of Boosted Damage cooldown (sec): 10
  • Inventory double power.png- Boosted Damage consumed: Dd mini.png 3 (+2)
  • Icon drone reload.png - Recharge (sec): 3


Additionally, like all Drones, Booster 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 Proper use of supplies makes it possible to have boosted damage active continuously
Plus.png Boosted Damage can be used immediately after other supplies
Minus.png Consumes boosted damage supplies quickly


Tips and Advice

  • Use Boosted Armor as your first supply (to avoid the cooldown imposed by Boosted Damage)
  • You can activate the effect twice in quick succession by first using your own supply, and then picking up a Boosted Damage box on the ground.
  • By carefully letting an enemy with an EMP augment shoot you, you can get a supply reset without dying, letting you refresh your Boosted Armor and use your extra damage again sooner
  • If your Boosted Damage runs out and is in cooldown, drop a mine and activate another supply (or two) to get it ready for when you need it next
  • Don't activate Boosted Damage until you're ready to shoot and sure you can hit someone! The effect is short and easy to waste.


Micro-upgrades

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