Non-AE drones added by the mod

Captain 's Edition imported some of its expanded weaponry into drone systems, greatly diversifying the pool of drones to choose from. While many of their base functions remain the same (combat, defense, personnel), their effectiveness in combat varies greatly. Just as with the expanded weaponry, one of CE's challenges is getting used to the wider variety of drones.

The stun-oriented version deploys concussive shells designed to distract both crew and the player. In addition, the system damage-oriented version can sometimes light fires. As missiles, their projectiles pierce all shield bubbles.

Light Anti-Crew Missile Drone Edit

De drone missiles light charged

Light M.

"Slow drone that damages enemy crew and systems with guided micro missiles. Its usage can be considered a war-crime under interstellar law, but nobody cares."

  • 2 power and 6 movement speed; 1 system damage, 15 crew damage with 20% breach chance and stun for 3 second.

  • Costs 50 scrap, and has level 3 rarity.
  • Enemy's projectile explosion will create a "flashbang" effect in your ship.

Ion Drones Edit

All kinds of drones here, from heavy and slow ones to light but fast ones. At least some of these drones can take out your shields much quicker than weapons, taking your shields down for other weapons or drones to attack your ship.

(Is this even a tip?) Unlike the player's ion weapons, drones cannot direct their attack towards shields at all times. As such, unless they fire on shields by themselves after completely neutralising them, when shields start to go back up, they'll need to completely drain them again. The same is true for the player's weapons, but those can always target shields.

Anti-Ship Ion Drone Mark I Edit

De drone ion 1 charged

"Slow-reloading drone that continuously attacks the enemy ship with ion blasts."

  • 1 power and 7 movement speed; 1 ion damage with 20% chance to stun crew.

  • Costs 60 scrap, and has level 5 rarity.

Defense DronesEdit

Captain's Edition also expands the arsenal of defensive drones, introducing missile defense drones and other drones that use CE's new weapon types. Reload speed and power cost of defense drones varies more widely in CE than in vanilla, with reload speed being a major factor determining how effective a drone is. Anti-drones also have been expanded with drones that can outright destroy enemy drones or disable multiple hostile drones at once.

The movement speed of a defense drone only matters if the player ship is too big and the defense drone projectile cannot reach the enemy projectile in time. A fast projectile speed overshadows this by a long shot.

Defense Drones are also capable of shooting down enemy offensive onboard drones, such as ion intruder drones or boarding drones. Whether or not the shot will connect with the target is another matter entirely.

Projectile Defense Drones Edit

These drones consist of different types of defense drones which shoot at incoming projectiles. The two main classes of projectile defense drones are:

  1. Those which can block missiles, mines, and asteroids (level 1 projectile defense drones)
  2. Those which can block any incoming projectiles (level 2 projectile defense drones)

There is also a special drone that can only shoot down mines, described in the last type of projectile defense drones (Ion Defense Drone).

Missile Defense Turrets Edit

Missile Defense Turrets are outdated defense drones that take a very long time to recharge and are extremely cheap. The Missile Defense Turret can shoot down missiles, mines, and asteroids but not tech-missiles or any other weaponry.

The only practical use for these is against missiles that take a very long time to recharge. The Mark I is quite a good deal worse than the Mark II, at a recharge of 24 seconds, being extremely slow against almost all missiles. The Mark II on the other hand, is alright against long recharge weapons, at a recharge of 14 seconds, but remember two things:

  1. A good deal of the time there will be missile launchers with recharge faster than 14 seconds, making these defense drones not so viable.
  2. If there is say a Flak along with a missile, then the missile defense turret will be thrown off, but this may happen for some of the later drones.
Missile Defense Turret Mark I Edit
De drone defense missiles charged

Missile D. I

"Outdated turret drone that shoots down incoming missiles and mines with defense missiles. Reloads in 24 seconds."

  • 1 power and a 24 second recharge; flies the slowest.

"Basic turret drone that destroys incoming missiles, mines, and asteroids with a counter-missile barrage. Reloads in 14 seconds."

  • 1 power and a 14 second recharge; flies the slowest.
  • Costs 20 scrap, and has level 1 rarity.

Light Defense Drones Edit

Light Defense Drones can shoot down incoming missiles, mines and asteroids, but not tech-missiles or any other weaponry. Light Defense Drones have the same capability as the regular Defense Drone Mark I, and their responsive is generally decent.

Light Defense Drone Mark I Edit
De drone defense light 1 charged

Light Def. I

The Light Defense Drone Mark I has better response time than the Heavy Defense Drone Mark I (however, this is a partly unfair comparison as the Heavy Defense Drone can shoot down any incoming projectiles).

"Slow-reloading defense drone that shoots down incoming missiles, mines and asteroids with high-velocity light lasers. Reloads in 6 seconds."

  • 1 power and a 6 second recharge; flies quite fast.
  • Costs 30 scrap, and has level 1 rarity.
Light Defense Drone Mark II Edit
De drone defense light 2 charged

Light Def. II

The Light Defense Drone Mark II has better response time than the standard Defense Drone Mark I, but not as good as the Burst Scatter Defense Drone.

  • 2 power and a 0.6 second recharge; flies pretty fast.
  • Costs 60 scrap, and has level 3 rarity.
  • Starting drone on The Basilisk (Mantis B).

Burst Scatter Defense Drone Edit

De drone defense scatter charged

Scatter Def.

This defense drone is in a category all on its own due to its unique design and characteristics. The Burst Scatter Defense Drone can shoot down incoming missiles, mines and asteroids, but not tech-missiles or any other weaponry, just like the Missile Defense Turrets, the Light Defense Drones, and the standard Defense Drone Mark I. This drone is pretty much the successor to the Light Defense Drone Mark I and represents the best drone among all the level 1 defense drones.

"Quick firing drone that shoots down incoming missiles, mines, and asteroids with medium-velocity scatter salvos. Reloads in 0.3 seconds."

  • 2 power and 0.3 second recharge; flies fast, faster projectile speed than the Light Defense Drone.

  • 2 power and a 1 second recharge; flies at a decent speed; can shoot down missiles, mines and asteroids but cannot shoot down tech-missiles or other weaponry.
  • Costs 50 scrap, and has level 1 rarity.
Defense Drone Mark II Edit

"Fires faster than mark I and can shoot down any incoming projectiles. Reloads in 0.75 seconds."

  • 3 power and a 0.75 second recharge; flies fast; can shoot down any incoming projectiles.
  • Costs 75 scrap, and has level 3 rarity.
Defense Drone Mark III Edit
De drone defense3 charged

Laser Def. III

Heavy Def. II

"Slow defense drone that reliably shoots down all incoming projectiles. Reloads in 4 seconds."

  • 2 power and a 4 second recharge; flies slowly.
  • Costs 65 scrap, and has level 3 rarity.

Ion Minesweeper Drone Edit

De drone defense ion charged

Minesweeper

The Ion Minesweeper Drone is in a category all on its own because it can only shoot down mines as its ion blasts are too slow to intercept any other projectiles. Very cheap. Might be useful against weapons with Stalker prefixes in Endless Loot, as those weapons have slower projectiles than usual.

"Designated minesweeper drone that detonates incoming mines with slow moving ion blasts. Unable to hit other projectiles effectively. Reloads in 0.75 seconds."

  • 1 power and a 0.75 second recharge; flies at a half-decent speed.

Drone-to-Drone Combat Edit

In Captain's Edition, each external drone has a hidden evade value similar to ships evade chance. This affects how easily a drone can be disabled or destroyed by anti-drones or stray shots. Fast moving drones generally have a better evade chance.

Personnel DronesEdit

Much like in vanilla FTL, Personnel drones are drones that take the same space as crew when active. They can vary between offensive boarding drones, defensive anti-personnel drones, and system repair drones. Due to modding limitations, it is impossible to add new types of drones; however, Captain's Edition adds "defective" and "improved" drones with modified power costs.
