The effect is the same as the Counter-UAV from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and 3. When in effect, enemies' minimaps will be covered with static. Like the Spy Plane, it can be shot down. They can be distinguished from regular spy planes in the air because they fly counter-clockwise.
Call of Duty: Black OpsEdit
The Counter Spy Plane appears in Call of Duty: Black Ops as a 4 killstreak. When called in, it obscures every map an enemy player has with static, although the outline of the map is still viewable in the pause menu. This also means that when calling in a killstreak which requires a map (Such as a Napalm Strike) the map will also be covered in static making it very hard to accurately place the strike. The Counter-Spy Plane also greatly slows down an enemy team, as they have to rely on their eyes and ears purely to locate enemies. Many players will wait in a location until the Counter-Spy Plane leaves or is shot down as they don't want to get ambushed.
Call of Duty: Black Ops DeclassifiedEdit
- Even though the Counter-Spy Plane lasts for 30 seconds, it can only be viewed for 25 seconds and during that time, it can be shot down.
- The Counter-Spy Plane will always fly counter-clock wise.
