Ellen Select Technology Co. thanks you for your sponsorship! Knights, you're in for a Surprise if you manage to shoot one down!

These drones commissioned by Ellen Select Technology as part of their sponsorship deals with the Kazimierz Major organizers have no offensive capabilities whatsoever, but instead gives the player a deployable object to use when shot down. For the object given and their amount, see the Rewards section below.

Unlike any other enemies, the Sponsor Drone will never fly into the Protection Objective; they will instead leave the map and despawn without reducing the player's Life Points, and are not included to the enemy counter.
