The Repair drone is a GDI support unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

Heals adjacent allies for a percent of their maximum health every second. Loses health over time.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Cannot target infanty Cannot target vehicles Cannot target aircraft
  • Heals directly adjacent units.
  • Flying.

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 Titan.

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.

Repair drone does not consume a population slot.
