In the campaign, the Hover Drone is used by Carter to assist Blake while he tried to secure Saunders in the mission Critical Path.
The Hover Drone has 4 rockets and 80 minigun rounds to kill SGS soldiers defending Saunders. Even if these weapons run out of ammunition, after a short moment of not using these will result in instant refill of bullets.
Similar to the Ground Drone, the gatling gun mounted on the Hover Drone can be overheated, and unlike the Ground Drone, it can run out of ammunition. However, resupplies of the gatling gun are swift. The gatling gun also fires at 1200 RPM and is exclusively a one-hit against hostiles. It also has very high penetration, meaning that it can blow through cars, barrels, and even tanks rather effectively.
The rocket launcher on the Hover Drone fires missiles that inflict instant death for any hostile within the blast radius, and with one missile, it can destroy an unarmored vehicle, such as a car, with just one hit, and can destroy tanks in two hits.
The hover drone is controllable by the player in:
“ Spawns an automated flying drone on a random position. The drone will fly around the battlefield, shooting down enemies in sight for 30 seconds or until shot down. Requires 8 kills or captures. „ —Game description
The Hover Drone requires 8 kills to use it in multiplayer. (With Military Tactician it will only need 7 kills.) The drone is not manually controlled and can only fire its machine gun. It is most effective at open areas such as in Alert. But it would not have access to enter buildings so it is not suggested to get this support in smaller maps.
If a Support class with the Paragon Saboteur perk equipped comes near the drone, the drone will be disabled and will fall to the ground, destroying it. A CTK-88 Crumplor can also lock on to the drone, knocking the drone out of the air with just one hit.
