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. 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. Like the UAV it takes one missile to destroy the Advanced UAV, except for the SMAW, which will not destroy it with one missile.
