Mechanic is a support Drone. It enhances the healing effect of the Repair Kit Repair symbol.png consumable and extends the effect to teammates within a small radius.

Garage description

Support drone. Improves the effectiveness of your Repair Kits, and repairs any team mates within its area of effect when using Repair Kits. Repairing team mates grants additional score points. Speeds up Repair Kit cooldown.

Effects

Mechanic is activated whenever a Repair Kit is expended. The number of hit points instantaneously restored is increased and the effects of this supply will apply to allies within a radius of up to 25 meters. Allies in range are connected by a thin blue laser. In addition, the Repair Kit's cooldown is reduced from 30 to 20 seconds, and every other supply activated reduces the cooldown by another 10 seconds. Allows activation of repair kit even when at full health when teammates are nearby.

For each teammate who benefits from the effects of this Drone, the activator will receive 7 battle points.
