Limpet Controllers are the controllers for drones. The drones can be launched from the ship to do various tasks depending on the type of limpet. The limpets are disposable, consumable items you have to replenish at a Starport under the Munitions section, or via Synthesis. All types of drones share the same disposable items.
Drone Types Edit
- Main article: Collector
Collection drones have two modes. The primary mode scoops the canister you're currently targeting. The secondary mode has an area effect, scooping everything it can before it expires.
- Main article: Decontamination
Decontamination limpets attach to a target ship's hull and remove any caustic residue left by Thargoid Interceptor missiles. At the same time, the drones also repair a portion of the target ship's hull, but are less effective at repair work than Repair drones.
Fuel Transfer Edit
- Main article: Fuel Transferer
Fuel Transfer limpets let a player send one ton of fuel to another ship, while in flight. Ships can carry additional fuel for their escort fighters and extend the effective range of their Wings.
Hatch Breaker Edit
- Main article: Hatch Breaker
Hatch Breaker limpets can be fired upon the targeted ship and upon contact break its Cargo hatch, thereby ejecting the target's cargo over time. It can be countered with Point Defence Turrets.
- Main article: Prospector
Prospector limpets scan asteroids, scouting for mineable materials they contain. They are very useful when seeking rare ores.
- Main article: Recon
- Main article: Repair
Repair limpets repair the targeted ship's hull.
- Main article: Research
Research drones attach to targeted Thargoid Interceptors and retrieve a research sample, such as a Thargoid Cyclops Tissue Sample, which is then stored as a commodity.
