Some or all of this information is outdated due to changes in the drones in the test server.
Drones are small combat unit that hover around your robot, which can provide special buffs for your robot or debuffs for your enemies when equipped with certain Microchips. This was one of 2 major features of 2020. This feature was introduced in Update 6.3.0.
Drones are unique in the fact that they have their own hangar. However, the drones themselves consist of two different factors: a Hull and the Microchips. The Hull, or Body, is just a normal Drone, which can do absolutely nothing besides hover around your robot, but when equipped with Microchips however, a Drone gets new abilities. Each Hull has an energy capacity, and each Microchip has an energy consumption. When a microchip added to the drone forces the hull to surpass its total energy capacity, the offender will not be able to be equipped anymore.
A Drone’s Hull can do absolutely nothing except hover around your robot and maybe look fancy, but without a Hull, a Drone literally doesn’t exist. Each Hull contains a mixture of 5 different Microchip types: Arms Controller, Attack, Defense, Effect and Repair. Microchips of the respective type can be installed into these slots.
A Drone Hull can be created by obtaining a blueprint. A blueprint can be purchased using Gold or Silver, and doing so will essentially 'create' the drone in your hangar. Here is a list of all the Drones in the game:
