A Drone formation is a certain setting you can apply to your active drones that forms them into a certain stance around your ship, each with its own stat bonus but at the cost of reducing some other stat. Some drone formations only work with six or more active drones, others if you have four or more. They are permanent once purchased and can be switched instantly once in-game. They are available in the Shop to purchase with both Credits and Uridium.
