Engineer is a support Drone. It significantly increases the duration of supply drops and shares the effect of the picked up supply box with all allies.

This is the only Drone that shares its effect with the owner's entire team.

Garage description

Support drone. Significantly increases active time of Supplies collected from drop boxes, and shares their effects with all team mates. Grants additional points if teammates benefit from the effect.


Mechanics

Engineer is activated after picking up a Drop Box. The effect of the supply box will affect not only the player who picked it up, but their entire team. Furthermore, the active time of the collected Supply is increased by 20 to 40 seconds (2-4 in the case of RK drops), depending on the upgrade level of the Drone. When Engineer is fully-upgraded, picked-up Supplies remain active for a full 70 seconds.

If at least one teammate benefits from the effects of this Drone, the owner will receive a 5 battle points.

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

Pros and Cons

Tips and Advice

  • Engineer works best in large maps, where lots of supplies drop and you spend a lot of time traveling. Highways, Berlin, and Dusseldorf are all great ones for it. Bridges, Serpuhov, and Kungur are nice as well.
  • Generally, this drone works best on a light hull, since you can get to boxes fastest
  • This drone works well when attacking in ASL mode, since your team controls most of the map's area (and so has access to lots of drop zones). It's also good for long flag-carrying or ball-carrying journeys in CTF and RGB.


Micro-upgrades

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