Trickster is a support Drone. It increases the strength of Speed Boost Speed symbol.png and reduces its cooldown. Active effect is indicated by the Icon SB.png symbol in battle.

Garage description

Increases the active effect of speed boost for a short time.* Increases reload speed of Speed Boost while using supplies. Using Speed Boost consumes additional supplies of the same type.

*This detail listed in the garage is incorrect; the boost lasts the entire 30 seconds.


Mechanics

Trickster increases the strength of speed boost (initially 40% speed) to 50% to 70%, depending on its upgrade level, and reduces the supply's cooldown when other supplies are activated.

  • Icon SB.png - Bonus Speed Boost (%): 10 → 30
  • Icon drone supply reload speed increase.png - Reduction of Speed Boost cooldown (sec): 10
  • Inventory nitro.png- Speed Boost consumed: 3 (+2)
  • Icon drone reload.png - Recharge (sec): 3


Additionally, like all Drones, Trickster 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 With activation of other supplies, allows you to constantly move more quickly than usual
Plus.png Also lets your turret rotate more quickly
Minus.png Easier to run out of Speed Boosts


Tips and Advice

  • Activate Speed Boost as your first supply. With this drone, it won't put other supplies into cooldown, and activating those other supplies while the Speed Boost is active will let you re-activate it as soon as it runs out
  • Practice anticipating where you're driving, especially with light hulls! It's easy to crash or underestimate how far you'll drift during a turn or a stop.
  • Trickster brings heavy hulls to life, so be sure to try them out as well as the more lively medium and light hulls!
  • Also try out unusual combos with trickster - the extra speed opens up lots of unexpectedly powerful combinations, such as heavy hulls with short or melee-range turrets


Micro-upgrades

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