The Advanced Drone Warfare provides USA drones with new, improved software and hardware that significantly enhances their performance by giving the following benefits:
- All USA drones will repair themselves over time, increasing their survivability.
- Fire Bases deal 33% more damage with their howitzer attack thanks to the presence of a spotter drone which marks priority targets.
- Repair Drones receive upgraded repair equipment which allows them to repair friendly vehicles as well as drones.
- Hunter Killer Drones can use Low Profile Approach to temporarily hide them from enemy sight, useful for sudden strikes and penetrating enemy air defenses.
- WASP Hives have 15% increased range, allowing them to command their WASP drones from further away. The drones also gain missile launchers which makes them more effective against vehicles and structures.
- Predator Drones can use Sensor Pulse to immediately detect hidden enemies in a large radius around it for a short time.
Behind the scenes
- This upgrade will be removed in 1.87 and its functions will be split across several upgrades, such as Drone Weaponry, Drone Workshop and Stealth Coating.
