Purchase Slots

Each custom loadout allows you to choose two items to purchase in game. You can only purchase them once you reached the required amount of BP. Once you have the required amount of BP, you can instantly purchase the item anywhere in a multiplayer game.

Drones

Drones are small remote-controlled machines. Each one can be used for different situations. If you are killed when controlling one, the drone will be destroyed. Drones can be destroyed by bullets, explosives, or one knife/melee attack. You cannot capture sectors in ground control with them.

All drones have battery power. The batter power is the amount of time you have with a drone before it self destructs. The more your drone does – moving and shooting – the faster the battery power runs out. I will give an average for battery time in the drone stats.

The health I give is a rough estimate based on the damage I learned from the weapon stats. Remember, a player’s health is 100 points.
