The Ground Drone makes multiple appearences in Modern Combat 4's campaign, first seen in the mission Red Summit. The player uses it to clear paths of large number of hostiles in order to advance their mission, using a gatling gun mounted on the drone. The gatling gun fires at an extremely high 1200 RPM, and deals one-shot kills against enemies exclusively. However, the gatling gun can be overheated, meaning that the player will have to wait for the gun to cool down after reaching maximum heat. The Ground Drone also has a limited amount of health, but it has plenty of health to start with.

- Aftermath - Used by AFTER to clear enemies in a burning police station. Destroyed by collapsed ceiling.
