Trooper is a defensive Drone. After spawning, applies to your tank the effects of Boosted Damage DD symbol.png, Boosted Armor DA symbol.png, and Speed Boost Speed symbol.png supplies for a short time.

Garage description

Defense drone. Activates Boosted Armor, Boosted Damage, and Speed Boost for a short period after respawning. Activating Boosted Armour consumes additional Supplies of the same type.


Mechanics

Trooper is activated immediately after the "ghost" phase of spawning. The effects of Boosted Damage, Boosted Armor, and Speed Boost are applied to the tank for a short duration. This provides the player with an advantage when faced with spawn-killers and enemy tanks overrunning the base.

This Drone consumes a single piece of Boosted Armor when activated. No Supplies of one's own are used apart from this.

  •   - Active time (sec): 10 → 20
  •   - Recharge (sec): 20


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

  •   Boosted Armor supply's effect strength (%): 50 → 100
  •   Boosted Damage supply's effect increase (%): 50 → 100


Pros and Cons

  Good for clearing enemies out of your base
  20-second cooldown must finish before you are destroyed for the effect to activate next spawn
  Supplies may run out before you encounter any enemies in large maps


Tips and Advice

  • This is a great drone to use if you don't have lots of excess supplies - it only consumes one Boosted Armor each time you spawn, and gives you Speed Boost and Boosted Damage for free
  • Topper is popular in Deathmatch mode, when having a full set of supplies when you spawn gives you a large advantage when enemies are everywhere
  • Avoid using trooper in large maps, since your bonus supplies will probably run out before you find any enemies and get a chance to take advantage of them.


Micro-upgrades

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