Gameplay Tips[edit | edit source]
- The drone cannot leave the backpack if its owner is inside a vehicle, only deploying when the Helldiver has disembarked.
- The heavy armor on Cyborg IFVs, Warlords or Hulks can deflect the Guard Dog's bullets back at the player, causing minor damage and (at Mk3) also applying mini-stun.
- The drone (at Mk3) can be very effective at stopping charging Cyborg Hounds. Saving the player from being struck off balance or eventually downed.

Notes[edit | edit source]
