Default Buying Sniper drones...

is there any way to get the possible 9 sniper drones with only 1 leader-guy? (whatever hes called, i dont know)

it seems like hes bundled with them so its just made to be more annoying...

no, each "spotter" picks targets for three diffrent drones, so for nine drones, you need three spotters.

Correct. Although you will be able to buy the drones seperately as bitz, you will still need one Spotter for every three drones.

I have a question about the drones too. Are they plastic or metal?

Ebay, Bitz, or a friend who has some extras that he/she would sell to you.

they are all metal, as is the special gear for 'Vre's and higher.

problem is you cant field drones without 1 in 4 spotters, so it would be pointless in selling them seperately.
