Driver is an Assault Drone. It increases the amount of overdrive charge gained by destroying a tank.

Garage description

Speeds up Overdrive recharge time while destroying tanks.

Effects

Driver is activated after destroying an enemy. In addition to the charge gained from the 15 points of battle score, destroying a tank will charge the overdrive as much as scoring up to 30 additional points.

Note
The description of this drone's effects with "seconds of overdrive charge" is inaccurate: the drone does not remove time from the charge, but rather adds charge based on the Battle point charge rate of a hull. Since this rate varies from hull to hull, when making a kill with driver, not every hull will receive the same increase in charge percentage. Rather, they will receive the same amount of charge relative to their hull's active charge rate.
  • Icon drone overdrive recharge reduction.png - Overdrive Charge Added: (10 → 30) Virtual extra battle points / kill
    • Remember, these extra points are not actually scored upon making a kill, but rather the overdrive charges up as much as if they were scored.
  • Icon drone reload.png - Recharge (sec): 15

Additionally, like all Drones, Engineer provides a small passive bonus to damage and armour:

  • Cdffcc5b.png - Additional protection (%): 1 → 5
  • 2a40baa3.png - Additional damage (%): 1 → 5

Pros and Cons

Plus.png Driver allows activation of overdrive more times than normal in a battle.
Minus.png Effect can only be triggered by destroying a tank at least 15 seconds after the previous one; kill assists or early kills do not give additional benefits.

Micro-upgrades

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