Supplier is a support Drone. It slightly increases the duration of Boosted Damage DD symbol.png, Boosted Armor DA symbol.png, and Speed Boost Speed symbol.png, and shares their effects with nearby allies.

Garage description

Prolongs the active time of the supplies Boosted Damage, Boosted Armor, and Speed Boost, and also “shares” the effect of activated supplies with nearby allies.


Mechanics

Supplier is activated after picking up or activating Boosted Armor, Boosted Damage, or Speed Boost. The effect of the supply will be increased by up to 5 seconds, and nearby allies will receive the supply's effect. Allies within range are indicated by a thin blue laser.

If at least one teammate benefits from the effects of this Drone, the owner will receive 20 battle points.

  • Icon drone supply reload speed increase.png - Additional Active Time (sec): 1 → 5
  • Icon drone shared effects radius.png - Effects' Radius (m): 15 → 25
  • Icon drone reload.png - Recharge (sec): 10


Additionally, like all Drones, Supplier 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 Possible to score lots of points when nearby many teammates, such as when defending a point in Siege or a base in Assault.

Minus.png Effective use sometimes means waiting to activate a supply until you can catch a teammate


Tips and Advice

  • Pair this with a light hull or a peppy medium hull (like Viking or Hunter) so that you can catch up to teammates that need a supply shared
  • Check which supply your teammates don't currently have active, and share that one - that way, you're giving them a new effect instead of just renewing and already-active one
  • Though the extra supply power and effect range from high upgrade levels are nice, you can score plenty with supplier at low upgrade levels if you're short on crystals or would rather invest them elsewhere.
  • Supplier works with boxes you pick up as well, so if you can pick one up near a teammate, you can score points without using any of your own supplies
  • This drone does not do as well if multiple other teammates are using it, or if they are using Engineer or Dictator, since you can't activate your supplies if someone else has already shared them with you.
  • By carefully (as in, without dying) letting an enemy with an EMP augment shoot you, you can reset your supply cycle and get back to scoring points by sharing supplies.


Micro-upgrades

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