Summary0019054: Autocannon Minibot Ally and Bullet drone balance [edited]
DescriptionThe minipod ally costs 50 credits, and follows the player around instead of orbiting, which is ok.
However, most of the time it doesn't really do anything because its detection range is fairly small, and it has quite a bit of self knock-back. I think it should use a higher attack range, and no/halved self knock-back (very counter-productive for the ally's mechanics) so that players can see that it's not just malfunctioning.

Similar thing with the basic 30-cred bullet drone, which seems to shoot very rarely with a little bullet, IIRC. Could this do with a higher firing rate (might have lower damage)?
TagsNo tags attached.

Yeah, for a while I've been considering just removing the kickback on the drone. It can be annoying on bosses to have a drone that doesn't fight back. I'll take a look at it soon, cheers.

I've put some changes in for this. The autocannon minibot should be more reliable now (removed kickback mainly). The bullet drone should be alright, but I'll take a look to see if I need to boost the fire rate. Thanks!
