Combat Drone - Notes

  • Combat drones do not have a duration and last until combat ends or they are destroyed
  • The Rocket Evolution also makes the drone keep its distance from enemies. This can create some distracting situations where the bot does not do what you intend.
  • The drone can stun enemies with its basic attack. The Shock upgrade provides a separate shock effect from the main one
  • The drone is the most effective when used to distract enemies. However, it does not work on some strong enemies like Atlas or Banshees
