Lifeguard is a defensive Drone. It restores some HP when the tank would be destroyed.

Garage description

After receiving fatal damage, protects the tank from destruction and instantly repairs it.


Mechanics

Lifeguard's effect is triggered when the tank receives fatal damage from an enemy or from self-damage. Instead of being destroyed, the user's tank will instantly have some amount of HP, depending on the upgrade level.

This Drone consumes 2 Repair Kits when triggered.

  • Icon drone instant heal.png - Healing (hp): 250 → 3000
  • Inventory first aid.png- Repair kit consumed: 2
  • Icon drone reload.png - Recharge (sec): 30


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

Tips and Advice

  • Due to the long cooldown time, try to enter dangerous situations with the effect ready. Its no fun to get killed mere seconds before Lifeguard could have saved you, so you might need some patience.
  • If there are a lot of Shaft, Railgun, or Gauss snipers making it difficult to travel, this drone is a great counter to them.
  • Lifeguard can let you survive the impact of a Meteor Gold Box
  • A well-upgraded lifeguard is a popular tool for facing Juggernauts, as it lets you last much longer - what would be the killing shot instead resets your HP.


Micro-upgrades

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