The Zongzi Factory is a 2x2 Defense room obtained through Daily Sales. Like the Visiri Mechbay, it only consumes a maximum of 2 power instead of the Android Studio's 3. However, unlike those Droid rooms, the Zongzi Factory is only able to produce one type of Android, that being the Zongzi Droid.
The Zongzi Factory is quite easily destroyed to its lower maximum power and high defense potential. Due to this, 4-5 blocks of Armor is mandatory for the Zongzi Factory, especially in the later levels. Placement wise, it should be nearby every powered room. This usually means the center of your ship.
- Advantages: Quite tanky, allowing it to survive much longer against enemy bombardment. First Aid ability provides 3 extra HP.
- Disadvantages: Easily countered by enemy boarders due to its low attack stat. Repair stat is also quite abysmal.
When To Use
The Zongzi Factory should only really be used to provide an extra last resort layer of defense. Since the Androids themselves aren't very good at repairing, they usually end up as meatshields that absorb enemy damage. In addition, the Zongzi Factory is available to players that haven't even unlocked the Android Studio, making it an early method of utilizing Androids.
The Zongzi Factory requires AI to equip Zongzi Droids in combat. Otherwise, they will not be equipped without manual intervention. However, since there is only one Android available to the Zongzi Factory, literally any AI equip command will work.
