Player Notes Edit

  • Unlike the Combat Drone, the Defense Drone will hover around the user's head during combat, shocking things that come within range.
  • The Defense Drone's shock attack functions similarly to the Overload ability, albeit on a much lower scale.
  • Defense Drone is effective at marginalizing flanking attackers, a boon for marksmen and power-based classes. It can be upgraded to the point where it deals substantial damage and chains to multiple targets.
  • As with many abilities in Mass Effect 3, the Defense Drone will only stay active if the player is in combat.
