Brutus is a passive Drone. It is the first Drone unlocked for Crystals in the Garage.

Garage description

Passive drone. Adds a passive bonus to the strength of Boosted Armor and Boosted Damage, and uses no batteries. The buff depends on the Drone's upgrade level.


Mechanics

Brutus is the simplest Drone in the game. It's only effect is the basic feature common to all Drones - a passive buff to the strength of Boosted Armor and Boosted Damage.

Unlike all other Drones, Brutus consumes no batteries. It's therefore an economic choice for tankers low on supplies/crystals.

Tips and Advice

  • Use Brutus at the low ranks, when you're low on supplies and batteries, or when you want to save your comsumables for use with stronger drones later on.
  • Take advantage of this drone's lower upgrade cost and shorter wait times by giving it a micro-upgrade whenever it's available. The sooner you have this drone maxed, the more battles you will win and the easier it will be to get new equipment, so you may even consider paying for speed-ups (not generally a good investment) when they go on sale.


Micro-upgrades

Like all Drones, Brutus can be micro-upgraded to a total 20 steps. The micro-upgrade costs and delay times of Brutus are 50% of those of a standard Drone.
