The Blastwing does only a small amount of damage, suitable for taking out mexes, solars, Lotus towers, wind farms and caretakers, though it can offer a more formidible punch en-masse. Be mindful of the speed and direction it is travelling, as much of the damage done by it is directional shrapnel that will continue on the trajectory of the bomb after it dies. In this way, you can spray an enemy with shards of metal even if your Blastwing dies before it is in range.

Do not pack them too tightly, as a group of them can chain explode. Blastwings fly close to the ground and can be accidentally set off if they stick around for too long in flame left by other Blastwings.

It can be useful for scouting and laying traps for raiders, and it cloaks when landed.
