12. Perimeter Security – Wattson

Drone EMP discharges an EMP strike which stuns enemies and damages their shields.

Why Drone EMP is Awesome:

  • It does 50 damage to any enemy shields within its radius.
  • It stuns enemies and allows your buddies to mow them down while they can’t move. Don’t feel bad. They would have done it too…

Why Drone of Compassion is Awesome:

  • You don’t need to interact with it to get healed. All you have to do is stand near it. Great for lazy folks. I know.
  • You can heal while fighting and don’t need to take your finger off the trigger. You basically just get a couple of hundred extra hp. No big deal…

  • Tactical ability.

Why Care Packages are Awesome:

Care Package details:

  • The time it takes to land is 15 seconds.
  • The cooldown is 6 minutes.

5. Interception Pylon – Wattson

Wattson Interception Pylon destroys incoming ordnance and recharges shields.

Why Interception Pylon is Awesome:

  • It recharges shields if you are near it, which is a lifesaver during a fight.
