Game unit[edit | edit source]
Primary purpose of the drone is to heal friendly units. It is less effective at healing squad units, since it cant bring back to life fallen units. But is very effective when paired up with high HP units, like Sandstorm.
It seems to be able to repair seemingly unlimited number of units, so it is especially effective when it supports a large number of stacked units.
The fast movement and the quick deployment time means that the drone is capable of flipping or stalling the missile in the critical moments in the game. To deal with this, pads (especially the seemingly safe ones) should be held by anti-air capable units, like Laser Squad.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Equipped with stolid, seemingly sapient AI, that seem to think it has a soul.

Initially cost 60 Tiberium, but was later reduced to 40, but that turned out to be too powerful, so later again price increased to 50.
