Hi guys,

Just curious about this, is there any downside to upgrading from Elite Sandstorm to Omega Sandstorm? According to the Wikia page the repair time is the same, unlike the Elite Titan to Omega Titan. I have all Omega tech which has already been fully upgraded, so I can only think that it is worth doing, unless I am missing something.

    If you decide to Equip the Telemetry Drones, be warned that although the OSS will have 550 Range, it will only Deploy Drones when targets are within 500 Range.

    The drone spawn range is a bit longer than 500. I would guess that the SS drone spawn range is somewhere around 550.

    However, this means that less drones will be able to spawn before the Sandstorm is in range of its target and starts to fire volleys of rockets.

    Don't forget that anything close to the SS will trigger drone spawns.
