- —Game Description
Flies around map and guns down enemies
Lightweight machine gun
The Hover Drone is a Military Support reward.
In the campaign the Hover Drone is used by Carter to assist Blake while he tried to secure Saunders.
The Hover Drone has 4 rockets and 80 minigun rounds to kill SGS soldiers defending Saunders.
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 Alert, etc. 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.
- Before the Meltdown Update. It took 9 kills/captures to recieve this support.
