All About Drones

Drones~

Drones are your helpers in battles. They boost your stats, enhance supplies and help in many other ways. They can be purchased with crystals in the Garage in the “Drones” section. You are also able to upgrade them in order to make their effects stronger. 

How to get a drone?

The first tiers of drones are unlocked as from the rank of Sergeant. Once you reach this specific rank, you will unlock a "Drones" tab which is located between the Hulls and Protection tabs. Once there, you will find all the available drones, just select the one(s) you prefer and purchase them using Crystals. More drones are unlocked as you progress in the game.


What are Batteries?

The batteries are consumables that are the unique power source of the Drone, without them, your drone cannot work, even if you've equipped your tank with it. Batteries will be used automatically every time you have a drone equipped.  All drones consume one battery per minute so use them wisely! 

  

Batteries can be purchased just like other supplies (except Goldboxes) for 300 crystals each, and Batteries can be purchased in Special Offers, at the Showcase of HTML5 and Mobile version of the game, with discounted price offered by Crystals and Tankoins. There are located on the far right side of the GoldBox Supply. Batteries are also obtainable through Daily Missions, normal and weekly containers.

How to use the drones in Battles?

The procedure is easier than you think. Just do as follows,

  • Go to the Garage
  • Move to the drones tab and purchase one of the available drones
  • Equip it to your tank
  • Make sure you have enough of batteries, otherwise, your drone will not work
  • Exit the garage and Play


Note: To Stop using the drone you need to go in the garage and unequip it. This will also stop the consumption of batteries.
