Drones Inherit Items

By Basil

A mod that allows all drones and turrets to inherit items from the player.

  • Has Solus Probes, Aurelionite, Queen Guards, Ghosts, Squid Turrets, and lots of configuration!

  • Can update inventories after each stage clear!

  • Can generate items for drones with the ItemGenerator option in the config file! Will ignore inherit settings.

  • Should now have more mod compatibilities! Let me know if something breaks and I'll try to look at it!

By default, only drones and turrets inherit items.

Please contact Basil#7379 on Discord for any issues besides the known bugs!


  1. Install BepInEx Mod Pack
  2. Install R2API
  3. Download the latest DronesInheritItems.dll here.
  4. Move DronesInheritItems.dll to your \BepInEx\plugins folder


  1. To find the config file, first start up the game with DronesInheritItems.dll in your \BepInEx\plugins folder already!
  2. Then go to \BepInEx\config and open com.Basil.DronesInheritItems.cfg

Ingame Examples


Gunner Drones (also had 4x modded base drone attack speed)

Back-up Drones (also had 4x modded base drone attack speed)


Q: Who does Aurelionite inherit items from?

A: To whoever owns the item. If there are multiple people who own the item, then it selects whoever had the most.

Q: How do you calculate the item max cap for item generation?

A: Currently the way it is done is randomly selecting a value from 0 to the current stage * item max cap, inclusively, for every item.

Q: How does the ItemRandomizer setting work?

A: It will randomly choose a value between 0 and the player's item count for the respective item if the setting is true.

Q: When will you update/add features?

A: Currently working a full time office job and modding is a hobby. I'll update when I have the time (usually weekends)!
