Fun Facts

  • As of Operation Deadpoint 2 the Halcyon can go into Drone Silo
  • It's the only reward building which is not a turret.
  • It releases drones one by one instead of all at once.
  • It can only house units with "drone" in their name except the Halcyon.
  • It automatically deploys drones without any command, when enemy units are within  the silo's 600 range.
  • Drones only take up max unit space when they are at your airfield.  When moved to a silo they take up the Silo's space.
  • Even if actively commanding the defense, drones from the silo are controlled by RUBI.
  • When the silo is destroyed, all Drones (Copter Drones, Slayer Drones, Wing Drones, Reaper Drones and Halcyon) will be destroyed also.
  • There is a bug on the description of the Drone silo . On the video and on the description of the building they said to the Silo need to 5h to be build . In reality you can build it instantly after you buy the building.
  • Once drones was destroyed in battle in the Silo, it will not appear in battle until your attack ended
  • Drone Silo maximum level was 6 until Command Center level 7 was added in patch as of 13th February 2014, now it has a max level of 10.
  • Upgrading the Drone Silo to level 10 gives you 15,843,542 XP
