Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit
The Assault Drone is a small, airdropped ground vehicle that comes equipped with a 50-round MK46 LMG and a single shot rocket launcher. The drone is player-controlled. The drone has unlimited ammo, but still has to reload its weapons. Its weapons can only be reloaded when empty; reloading the Drone's machine gun takes approximately three seconds, and the rocket launcher takes approximately 5 seconds. The drone's weapons are very powerful, and it has a decent movement speed.
The robot is destroyed after it has taken enough damage or after 60 seconds, if a player looks carefully at the HUD there is a timer on how long the Assault Drone can last. Killing the operator will bring it offline, as will the detonation of an EMP. It can be also taken out by a single, well thrown EMP Grenade, or one shot from a Stinger. Furthermore, the Predator missile, AC-130 cannon and similar controlled aerial killstreaks can quickly destroy it with a precise shot. Unlike the AC-130 and other aerial killstreaks, it can only travel on the ground, which significantly limits its effectiveness unless the map is small.
- The Assault Drone cannot collect dog-tags in Kill Confirmed.
- The Stinger, SMAW and Javelin can all lock onto the Assault Drone.
- If the player is killed by an Assault Drone and viewing the killcam, the timer of the Drone is always 0:00.
- In the early kill streak logo of the Assault Drone, it resembled more of a tank than a drone.
