|Warrant Officer 4|
Defense drone. Allows for a certain number of mines to remain active after the owner’s tank is destroyed. Speeds up mine cooldown while using Supplies.
Miner comes in to play when a player who has deployed Mines is destroyed. Ordinarily, the player's Mines would be de-activated and disappear. With Miner, however, a certain number of Mines are permitted to remain; this amount increases with the Drone's upgrade level.
Additionally, Miner reduces the cooldown of Mines from 30 to 20 seconds. Each subsequent Supply (other than a Mine) activated reduces the cooldown of Mines by another 10 seconds. Strategic use of Smart Cooldowns allows one to deploy mines very quickly - about once every 10-15 seconds on average.
- - Number of saved up mines (sec): 3 → 30
- - Reduction of Mine cooldown (sec): 10
- - Recharge (sec): 10
Additionally, like all Drones, Miner provides a small passive bonus to damage and armour:
- - Additional protection (%): 1 → 5
- - Additional damage (%): 1 → 5
Pros and Cons
Works well when your team is struggling - even if you are destroyed frequently, your defenses will get stronger as you plant more mines.
Allows quick and light coverage of multiple routes with mines, followed by gradual buildup of heavy defenses in some areas
Requires frequent activation of other supplies to plant mines at maximum speed
Doesn't work as well in game modes where enemies don't frequently drive in predictable/accessible areas
Like all Drones, Miner can be micro-upgraded to a total of 20 steps.
