I like the general idea of this Freelancer. What phase is the 2nd activate?
Also just a bit of idea from me about the Dash:
Make it teleport to where the 'Eye Drones' are or teleport somewhere within the line of sight of the nearest drone.

I considered that, but I thought it was too similar to Grey's. The concept is already quite similar, so I was looking to avoid more. Actually, Supports probably shouldn't even have a dash, but I'd run out of brilliant ideas at that point, and I thought that having it be super limited (by not being able to pick your target) that it might make it acceptable.

EDITED OP: Added phases to 2-5

Yeah that's actually a good point
