Engineer Ticks not Dropping


[PS4] So I have unlocked the engineer specialization and was really hoping to start using this new ability based on “Ticks” but nothing seems to be happening with them at all. Scavenging Runners, Seekers, Hunters and even a Tank I don’t seem to be getting any tick pods to drop… is it something I am doing wrong or a bug?


Welcome to the forums, @CountHarken. I’m on PS4 too, and I can I assure you that Ticks do indeed drop as long as the Engineer specialization is active. Based on observation, only T2 and T3 Hunters and Tanks drop Ticks, with an increased drop chance for the T3 Hunters and Tanks.

Hope that helps. :slight_smile:


Thanks so much! My only question now is how do I tell what tier a tank, hunter or any robot is?


If you have Spotting 1, you can identify them with your binoculars. This will also tell you what loadout they have.


  • T1 have an orange colour,
  • T2 have a greenish camo pattern, and
  • T3 are black and red.

I hope this helps. :slight_smile:


It has been very helpful thank you Vasdema.
