Sprinter is an assault Drone. After picking up a flag, ball, or capturing a point, activates boosted versions of Repair Kit Repair symbol.png and gives the effects of Boosted Damage DD symbol.png, Boosted Armor DA symbol.png, and Speed Boost Speed symbol.png for a short time.

Garage description

After picking up the flag, the ball or capturing a control point gives the effect of Boosted Damage, Boosted Armor and Speed Boost for a short time and repairs the tank.


Mechanics

Picking up game pieces or capturing points repairs the tank and activates Boosted Armor, Boosted Damage, and Speed Boost for up to 20 seconds. If one of the aforementioned supplies is already active, its duration won't be increased.

This Drone consumes a single piece of Speed Boost when triggered. No Supplies of one's own are used apart from this.

  • Supply Time.pngRepair symbol.png - Added duration to the Repair Kit supply (sec):[1] 2 → 5
  • Supply Time.pngDA symbol.pngDD symbol.pngSpeed symbol.png - Active Supplies Time (sec): 10 → 20
  • Inventory nitro.png- Speed Boost consumed: 1
  • Icon drone reload.png - Recharge (sec): 20


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

  • DA symbol.png Boosted Armor supply's effect strength (%): 50 → 100
  • DD symbol.png Boosted Damage supply's effect increase (%): 50 → 100


Pros and Cons

Plus.png Simultaneous repair and activation of supplies is an excellent boost in the middle of a game
Minus.png No effect in TDM, TJR, DM, or SJR modes, or in the Defending team in ASL.
Minus.png Maximum of 6 activations in SGE mode.


Tips and Advice

  • The main mode in which Sprinter is consistently helpful is Control Points..
  • This drone can work reasonably well in CTF, since generally you will need the repair and extra supply time when capturing. If you and a friend both use this drone, one can hand off the Flag (or in Rugby, the ball) to the other, giving them the drone's effect.
  • Usually, when attacking in ASL mode, the effect will run out before you can reach the base. Your best shot is with a light hull.
  • Never use this drone in TDM, TJR, SGE, SJR, or DM mode. It's a waste of batteries.


Micro-upgrades

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

Notes

  1. The buffed repair kit is not of any practical use in battle, since no ordinary hull has more than 4000 hp. In fact, it is a disadvantage, since you cannot activate your own repair kit until the one you picked up is finished.
