The Buddy is a Fanon Tier 2 tank that upgrades from Tank. It spawns a single AI Factory drone that protects it. It may upgrade further to Trainer or Pounder.

Design

The Buddy features a circular body, a regular cannon on front and a spawner on back.

Technical

The Buddy functions as the same with Tank. However, the Buddy has an uncontrollable Factory drone that helps the tank itself. This is spawned from the back of the tank with its spawner, and while not noticeable during lower levels, it is slightly weaker than a Factory’s drone on max level, and takes a longer time to respawn when destroyed. No stats on the Buddy’s main cannon and bullets are changed.

Strategy

  • Strong Against: Low level tanks, other tanks that the Tank can overpower at higher levels
  • Weak Against: Overseer branch, high DPS tanks

As the Buddy

  • The Buddy acts more like its predecessor, save for its drone companion. It is best to have the drone give help when fighting others, by trying to get close against enemies so the drone can detect and attack them.
    • Since drones will automatically attack as well if whoever controls them is hit, this can be used to make the drone pursue the enemies from further distance, although this isn’t recommended as the bullets can either kill the drone or the Buddy if not careful.
  • The player should avoid higher level tanks, as well as those that fires bullets in fast rate, like the Twin and Machine Gun.
  • Meanwhile, the Flank Guard and Sniper should be easy to take down as they lack extra firepower. The Sniper itself can be easily defeated once it reveals itself but fails to retreat, although the Flank Guard may utilize a ramming build, which may complicate things a bit further.
  • Ram-reliant stat builds are less efficient, as the player’s Factory drone will be left very weak, as well as that its upgrades are all focused on projectile damage.

Against the Buddy

  • As with against the Tank, most bullet spammer classes should be able to overpower the Buddy. Its Factory drone isn’t strong enough to resist much damage especially at lower levels.
  • Attempting to flank the Buddy may take a bit more luck as its drone may notice such and proceed to attack the player.
  • As an Overseer, the player should direct their drones to where the Factory drone isn’t present, as it can still block and destroy some of their drones and may give the Buddy chances to survive and either escape or proceed on a counterattack.

Achievements

Trivia

  • Its name is most likely because of the tank’s accompany, the Factory drone.
  • Its Factory drone used to be stronger than a normal Factory drone. This was changed as it turns out the automatic drones from tanks like Hybrid and Overtrapper are actually weaker than those from natural drone users like Overseer. Otherwise, the Buddy would be overpowered upon reaching Level 45.
