The Maxis Drone is seen in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies map Origins. It is a buildable automated quadrotor. Once deployed, it will fly around the player shooting nearby zombies, acquiring Power-Ups and reviving downed players. The Maxis Drone weapon is the MG08/15. It will last about 90 seconds before it needs to recharge and returns to the workbench it was built at, unable to be picked up by the player until it recharges. It is also needed to collect four small yellow disks located around the map, which when the player is next to the disk locations the drone will fly to the disk and collect it. Once all four have been located, there is an upgraded MG08/15 (Magma Collider) in front of the Pack-a-Punch Machine able to be picked up by anyone.
It can be upgraded during the events of the Little Lost Girl easter egg. After shooting down the red glowing biplane, a phantom zombie will start to circle the excavation site. It will only become visible when the player obtains Zombie Blood. After killing it, the Maxis Drone will respawn and can be picked up. It will be sent back to the recharging station where its built-in gun is now Pack-a-Punched.
