I forget what its called, are there still problems where drones can pursue so fast that they mess up their own tracking and actually do LESS dps?

I read that this was a bug/feature awhile back. It just seems really counterintuitive that a skill could hurt you.

Train Drone Sharpshooting to an equal level or higher than you trained Drone Navigation.

First of all, they fixed it. The drone navigation skill no longer modifies drone orbit speed (or at least.. currently, who knows if it will get messed up again). So train drone nav up as high as you want, they will slow down to their listed orbit speed once they get in range.

Second, Drone Sharpshooting never had any impact on this, even when it was "bugged". It was a rumor that someone started under the assumption that drone optimal range had something to do with drone orbit range (it doesn't). Training drone sharpshooting has no impact on drone orbit range.

This is an urban legend. Drone sharshooting has absolutely no impact on your drones tracking ability. Train navigation to 5 and train drone sharpshooting to 5 only if you want to use sentries.

This is true. Training both is useful for light drones and sentries. I say light drones because they need to catch up to quick targets, and the sharpshooting should let them get off more shots before going into MWD again.
