Has anyone had good experiences spamming Gun Drones without Devilfish?

Post#1 » Sep 14 2017 09:50

I've seen lots of people using this kind of unit:

HQ - Cadre Fireblade / Markerlight
Dedicated Transport - Devilfish w/ Burst Cannon; 2x Gun Drones
Fast Attack - 6x Gun Drones
Fast Attack - 5x Gun Drones

It's a great unit and puts out a real storm of fire. However, has anyone had good experiences using the Gun Drone / Fireblade combo without a Devilfish? It's slower but fits more Gun Drones, about 16 more.

I feel like it wouldn't be as good, but has anyone tried it?

I have. It actually isn't that less effective. Sure, you get around a lot slower. You also lose the devilfish Sponson Weapons (which is a pain if you have this need for a pair of SMS sponsons). However, it actually doesn't lose effectivness. One of my friends who plays farsight enclaves had a match against me using a devilfish version, and me using a non-devilfish version. In the end, he won, but the last units standing were the devilfish + drones + fireblade and the Drones + fireblade
