The Scout Drone is a drone that acts as a scout that scans the immediate area within its radius and marks friendlies and hostiles on the player's sight. It acts very similarly to the Integrated Radar. It can also distract hostiles while they try to shoot it down which gives the player a chance to take them down.

Campaign Edit

The Scout Drone is first obtained in the Rinnoji Temple by Phoenix, and is available in most missions for the remainder of the campaign. In the campaign, players can deploy Scout Drones at will via the key to activate special abilities, and receive an unlimited supply of drones per mission.

It is also present on Bomb Squad Spec Ops missions, where the player must locate a bomb; after killing all of the required enemies, the player must deploy the Scout Drone, and the drone will highlight the bomb.

Multiplayer Edit

The Drone is a Military Support in multiplayer. Its alternative is the Recon Aircraft, (which scans the whole map but without highlighting the hostiles on the player's HUD).

It can be very helpful with sniper rifles, to predict the enemies' actions. The Scout Drone can be shot down with explosives or bullets. It will also be automatically destroyed when the player who deployed it was killed, or when the drone has been activated for 30 seconds.
