Lore[edit | edit source]

"The inclusion of Rapid Response Drone Squadrons (RRDS) by local law enforcement marked a dire turning point of Plank's Rebellion. After its massive "success" in quelling the Rebellion - and subsequent implementation across Mercury - underground drone hackers became highly sought after by black market users."

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • On Captain, using this equipment is extremely beneficial due to his passive skill granting every strike drone Defensive Microbots until their duration runs out.
  • Due to it's 100 second cooldown, it's best to use this in a horde of enemies or during the teleporter event as the drones have a high rate of fire.
