The MQ-27 Dragonfire, or Quadrotor, is an unmanned flying drone featured in almost all of the futuristic missions in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, as well as a usable drone in Strike Force missions and multiplayer matches. It also appears in Call of Duty: Strike Team and Call of Duty: Heroes. After taking enough damage, it falls to the ground and explodes; the resulting explosion is not lethal. In campaign, the Dragonfire is named the Quadrotor.

Mounted Machine Gun



In campaign missions, only in "Achilles' Veil" a swarm of Quads drones would be temporarily assigned to David "Section" Mason, in others it can only be acquired via accessing locked containers using the Access Kit. A interesting note is that some Dragonfires are equipped with grenade launchers while others have the default machine gun.


In multiplayer, The MQ-27 Dragonfire is a scorestreak that is usable at a score of 975 (or basically 10 kills) that is controlled by the player and hovers around the map. The only weapons that it uses are its machine gun that takes five bullets to kill at close-medium range and seven at long range.

The Dragonfire is a small target and can be hard to take down especially with bullet weapons. It is more forgiving to use a lock-on launcher such as the FHJ-18AA.

Call of Duty: Strike TeamEdit

The Dragonfire returns in Call of Duty: Strike Team. The player uses it to look down and control their squad. It does not, however, have any weaponry.

  • Along with the VTOL Warship and A.G.R., the Dragonfire's timer will continue when paused on Theater Mode.
