The Ground Drone makes its first and only appearance in Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour.


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.

It appears in the missions:


Spawns an automated ground drone on a random position. The ground drone will patrol the battlefield, shooting down enemies in sight for 30 seconds or until shot down. Requires 7 kills or captures.
