Companion Bots

Recommended Posts

There would be 2 kinds of companion bots; Dog bot(ground roamer), Dragonfly bot(air roamer). 

Dog Bot: is ground based, it has 1 tier 2 slot and 2 tier 1 slots when it is deployed. The Dog Bot will have 3 compatable mods available:

Retriever mod: ocasionally fetches nearby scrap and rarely; resources.

Terrier mod: tracks and points out nearby resource nodes.

K9 mod: bot is faster, strains less with more cargo, consumes less energy.

Dragonfly Bot: is an air based, it has 3 tier 1 slots when it is deployed.

Map mod: Dragonfly bot flies high overhead, providing UAV support.

Seeker mod: Dragonfly bot automatically researches T1 research within range.

Alert mod: Dragonfly bot detects and marks dangerous plants, including name and plant type.

 

Both bots will have their own reserve slot when they are deployed. They will drop the resource tabs but not the mod being currently equipped when you collapse them to put it away in its slot.

 

Both bots requires 1 Steel to print from the back pack. When the bot is printed, it will come with a station. When the bot is deployed, there will be a power line connected to the player's pack.
