The newest Worms title has incorporated some more contemporary elements to its world, including a modernized set of weapons. And what would a modern arsenal be without drones? Though these seem like a great addition to your inventory, you might find that this new gadget requires a more delicate approach to be useful.
How to Use the Mischievous Drone in Worms W.M.D
When it comes to the basics – the Mischievous Drone can be selected from the inventory, like any other weapon. You can then toss it like a grenade. The difference is, once you’ll press any of the direction keys when the drone is in the air, it will start flying. You can control it using the direction keys, but it will only stay in the air for around 6 seconds.
What the Mischievous Drone is Best For
The best thing about the Mischievous Drone is the fact that it can pick up any crate It flies into. This means you can steal supplies from the middle of enemy territory.
The worst thing is that the drone is flimsy – turrets will easily shoot it down and it cannot interact with other worms at all (if you thought about using it to push them into the water, like me). It can, however, trigger mines near your enemies, so it has its combat uses. But most importantly, you can steal dozens of materials from your enemies, allowing you to craft powerful weapons before they even get the chance to react.

Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide
Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.
Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.
In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.
The Sandglass Location
To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.
Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.
From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.
The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge
Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.
First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.
From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.
When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.
From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.
At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.
After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.
Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
