The drone is kind of annoying.

I was really excited about the drone before release, but once I spent some time with it I realized it was too much like a cop. When you need it, it is absolutely nowhere to be found and when you don't want it around it is standing between you and the person you are trying to shoot, yelling things at you and trying to get you killed. I feel like it would be a lot better if it followed you more closely, just not constantly getting in your face. Also, I feel like it's gain needs to be turned down like 4db. It is so much louder than everything else in game. As if the constant shot blocking wasn't bad enough, it also gets in my face when I try to get to my stash boxes... I love the idea, but this iteration could use these minor tweaks.

Two suggestions from me:

 

1. silent mode just deactivated voice, not turned it in to stealth mode. When it bumps in to things when silent causes more concern.

2. If you have a weapon, block shapes or tool out, it should stay behind you at all times. When you want to engage with it (open inventory for example), put the weapon/tool away and it should behave as it currently does.

2b. Alternative version: if enemies are alert and in range (eg. not sleeping), or you have block shapes/tool in hand, it should stay behind you. This would allow you to control it whilst sneaking in a POI (eg. stay here).

But muh preshus inventory! :)

 

That's an option but it's a workaround - just a bit of twitching, eh, tweaking of the ai could remove the need. Another second saved is another trash pile looted!

I wish there were other drones or drone modifications. I would rather have a trashcan dalek with treads and both the punching arm and the shooting option then the hover drone. So it carries stuff? meh. if you are at the stage to have the drone, you are at the stage to have the 4x4 and the 4x4 is a better friend than the drone ever will be and can hold more inventory, and is an easy jump out to get, especially since frame shapes can be made into ladders so if you want to go outside at any point in most tier 5 pois, it's cheap and easy.

I'm honestly surprised to see that I'm not the only one slightly irritated with the drone's wonkiness. Credit where credit is due though, I think the drone is still cool, a good idea, and 7dtd is one of my favorite games after about 30 years of being a gamer. I seriously can't stop playing this game and I don't know why.
