Support Drone Fabrication creates an automated ally drone that will assist you (or an ally) in combat and provide engineering buffs (dependent on level). Engineering players who reach the rank of commander grade 5 will receive this as a player ability.

Support Drones can be assigned to yourself or an ally (away team member, fabricated object, another play). When assigned to yourself they have a tendency to roam further than when assigned to an ally.

Because Drones roam, caution is advised when deploying in certain combat situations as they may attract the attention of unwanted enemies. This can be negated by assigning them to a stationary fabrication.

See also the Seeker Drone Fabrication which actively hunts down enemies.

Basic Information[edit]

  • Profession: Engineering
  • Locale: Ground
  • Game Description: Fabricates a Support Drone that will follow and assist you. If you select an ally (Away Team member, another fabricated device like a turret or another drone, or any other ally), the support drone will assist that target. Support Drone III is equipped with a beam attack, Equipment Diagnostics, Quick Fix, and Shield recharge. It comes with improved shields.
