- "Heavily armored C8 with auto and manual control capabilities."
- — Scorestreak description.
The R-C8 is a C8 combat drone. It is unlocked at level 27 and is earned after achieving a 1450 scorestreak. It is called in similarly to the A.G.R. from Call of Duty: Black Ops II in that it is airdropped onto a marked location designated by the player. The R-C8 sports a Gauss Cannon on its right arm, and two shields on its left arms. The R-C8 can be controlled by A.I. or by remote control. When being remote controlled, the player can only operate in two dimensions, featuring the inability to jump.
The R-C8 uses its shield autonomously or at will by the player if attacked by an enemy.
- Hellion (Rare): Moves faster, but has a lower life time.
- Pinwheel (Legendary): The Gauss cannon is replaced with a rapid-fire energy gun.
- Meteor (Epic): Gains the ability to boost vertically by holding the Jump button.
