'''Drones''' are your helpers in battles. They boost your stats, enhance supplies, and help in many other ways. They can be purchased with [[crystals]] in the [[Garage]] in the “Drones” section. You are also able to upgrade them in order to make their effects stronger.
 
To use the drone, you need to equip it, the same as any other gear. An equipped drone will appear in battle above your tank and will follow you, everywhere. Drones will automatically trigger following a specific event or action in battles -- you don’t need to activate them yourself. After the activation drones will become inactive until they are automatically recharged.
 
  
All drones have 2 standard parameters on top of their own unique features: additional turret damage and additional protection from incoming damage. If the drone is equipped and activated, the damage that your tank does is increased, and the damage that it takes is reduced by the number (percentage) specified in the characteristics of the drone. These parameters can be upgraded, the initial value is 1%, the maximum is 5% in the case of a fully-upgraded drone (excluding the base drone Brutus, which goes up to 10%).
+
Drones require '''Batteries''' [[File:Supply_battery_preview.png|22px|link=]] - a special kind of [[Supplies|Supply]] - to be used. More information can be found further [[#Batteries|below]].

To use the drone, you need to equip it, the same as any other gear. An equipped drone will appear in battle above your tank and will follow you, everywhere. Drones will automatically trigger following a specific event or action in battles - you don’t need to activate them yourself. After the activation drones will become inactive until they are automatically recharged.

+
Every drone has two effects: a basic effect and a unique effect. The basic effect is common to all drones: a small but significant passive increase to damage dealt and a reduction in incoming damage, by the number (percentage) specified in the characteristics of the drone. These parameters can be upgraded, the initial value is 1%, the maximum is 5% in the case of a fully-upgraded drone (excluding the base drone [[Brutus]], which goes up to 10%).
==Drone Settings==
+
 
You can turn off the drones to be shown for yourself and all enemies in the interface settings if they distract you from battle.<br>
+
After the drone's unique effect has been activated, it has to charge for a certain amount of time before it can be activated again. The basic effect, on the other hand, is passively active as long the drone is equipped and activated.
 +
 
 +
Unlike [[turrets]] and [[hulls]], drones do not have mark levels. Instead, they can be upgraded to 20 steps. The [[micro-upgrades]] values​ for each drone can be found in the page of the relevant drone.

==Classification and Types==
  
Drones are classified into four major types: '''Assault''' - who help out with attacking; '''Defensive''' - who help out with defense; '''Passive''' - who don't have situation-specific effects; and lastly, '''Support''' drones - who support a player or their teammates in many situations.<br>

Drones banner.png

Drones are your helpers in battles. They boost your stats, enhance supplies, and help in many other ways. They can be purchased with crystals in the Garage in the “Drones” section. You are also able to upgrade them in order to make their effects stronger.

Drones require Batteries Supply battery preview.png - a special kind of Supply - to be used. More information can be found further below.

Mechanics

To use the drone, you need to equip it, the same as any other gear. An equipped drone will appear in battle above your tank and will follow you, everywhere. Drones will automatically trigger following a specific event or action in battles - you don’t need to activate them yourself. After the activation drones will become inactive until they are automatically recharged.

Every drone has two effects: a basic effect and a unique effect. The basic effect is common to all drones: a small but significant passive increase to damage dealt and a reduction in incoming damage, by the number (percentage) specified in the characteristics of the drone. These parameters can be upgraded, the initial value is 1%, the maximum is 5% in the case of a fully-upgraded drone (excluding the base drone Brutus, which goes up to 10%).

After the drone's unique effect has been activated, it has to charge for a certain amount of time before it can be activated again. The basic effect, on the other hand, is passively active as long the drone is equipped and activated.

Unlike turrets and hulls, drones do not have mark levels. Instead, they can be upgraded to 20 steps. The micro-upgrades values​ for each drone can be found in the page of the relevant drone.

Classification and Types

Drones are classified into four major types:

  • Passive - who don't have situation-specific effects;
  • Assault - who help out with attacking;
  • Defensive - who help out with defense, and lastly;
  • Support drones - who support a player or their teammates in many situations.

Batteries

Battery

Batteries are a supply type, which will be automatically used in battles when you have any of the drones equipped. Same as other supplies, you will be able to purchase batteries in the Garage and in the Shop, find within containers and, obtain through Missions and Challenges, and of course, win in contests.

  • One battery costs 300 Crystal.png.
  • One battery is used per minute by any Drone.

Interesting facts

  • Drones were part of a secret project, named "Project Energizer". They were first hinted when the developers edited the Development Plans page in the Wiki, where they added a mysterious point under the Work in Progress header. In a special thread in the forum, only one tanker correctly guessed what a part of it would be, Musa.
  • Drones run on batteries, and they use them one at a time per minute, even if you're unwilling to use them. It is important to unequip a drone if you're not planning on using one, otherwise, they will waste your batteries!
  • Initially, twelve drones were planned to be released, but only three were released in the first wave - «Assault», «Trooper» and «Mechanic».
  • Contradictory to the first speculations, animated paints do move on the drone, but the movement is very hard to spot due to the small size.
  • On the 23rd of June, an additional three drones were added, namely «Driver», «Engineer» and «Supplier».

  • For the duration of the 2018 World UFO Day celebrations, the visual appearance of Drones was changed to a flying saucer.
  • On November 29th, 2019, the «Hyperion» drone was added to the game during the Black Friday celebrations. The following day, it was also added to a special bundle available for purchase in the Shop from the rank of IconsNormal 27.png Marshal.
  • All drones have 20 micro-upgrade steps, and cost 1,000,000 Crystal.png to upgrade fully without sales or speedups. The only exception is Brutus, who only costs half that at 500,000 Crystal.png to max out.
  • Mechanic, Defender, Booster, and Miner don't just reduce the cooldown imposed by the activation of their supply: using other supplies also speeds up its recharge. This means you can activate the associated supply much more often!
