A civilian crop Duster retrofitted with massive rear capacitors. Excels at running away.

The Duster is a class in Steambirds Alliance.

Manuever

The Duster has two maneuvers, Dust Trail and Spin Attack. Both maneuvers fire bullets which are modified by Damage multiplier.

Dust Trail

Dust Trail, active whenever the Duster is superspeeding, fires slow-moving (non-zero Range) or stationary (zero Range) bullets behind the Duster based on the item rank of its Engine. (T0 Dust Trail has a 20-shot clip and a 2-second cooldown; all other Dust Trails never need to reload.)

Spin Attack

Spin Attack, with a Steam cost of 11 and a 3-second internal cooldown (indicated by shading on the plane's Armor slot), is the Duster's active-use maneuver.

When Spin Attack is activated using the Maneuver input (on keyboard, S key by default), the Duster shoots a semi-circular spread of slow-moving, enemy-piercing bullets as it turns around on the spot (presumably by tilting its rudder all the way to one side). Base damage and number of shots depends on the item rank of the Duster's current Armor (ELEM and SPEC Armor count as Tier 10 for the purposes of choosing Spin Attack's firing pattern).

Attempting to activate Spin Attack while it is on cooldown will instead consume 3 Steam (rather than the usual 11 Steam) and cause the Duster to perform the alternate maneuver Flip 180°, turning the plane around without firing any bullets.

Notes

  • At level 1 with its T0 initial loadout, the Duster will have Armor and Damage values of, respectively, ~15.4 and 104% due to the effects of leveling multipliers.
  • Opening the chat box then closing it, superspeeding, and quickly using Spin Attack will make the bullets shoot in front of you, but the plane will not flip 180°.
