MW3 Advanced UAV

Strike Package Reward





The Advanced UAV is a 12-point Support pointstreak that appears in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and it returns as a Scorestreak in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

The Advanced UAV is a fixed-wing aircraft that periodically shows the position and direction of enemies on the player's minimap with increased frequency compared to the common UAV.[1] However, unlike the SR-71 Blackbird from Call of Duty: Black Ops, it can be seen and shot down. The Advanced UAV does not give real-time updates of the enemy's movements; instead, it sweeps periodically like the normal UAV. Also, players using the Assassin perk are immune to detection by the Advanced UAV. The Advanced UAV stacks with normal UAVs.[2] Like the UAV, it takes one missile to destroy the Advanced UAV, except for the SMAW.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Edit



  • Early versions of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 referred to it as a "Directional UAV".
  • In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, three UAVs active at once will have the same effect as an Advanced UAV.
