Technically not a "turret", the Seeker is a deployable flying drone (with a similar appearance to that of the Scout Drone).

When deployed, the Seeker will will follow the player or the closest teammate. Once an enemy enters its range it will lock on to the enemy (which is indicated by the drone's light changing from green to red). Once locked on, the Seeker will home in on its target and explode upon contact with the enemy, dealing massive damage (typically capable of killing an enemy in 1-2 hits), as well as producing explosive "splash" damage within a small radius. Like other Prestige weapons, the Seeker also has maximum armor penetration.

After following an enemy for a brief time, the Seeker is also capable of highlighting the enemy's position on the battlefield (in the same manner as that of the Scout Drone or the Sniper's Evil Eye Armor Core). 2 Seekers can be deployed at a time. It should be noted that any deployed Seekers will disappear from the map upon the player's death.

The Seeker's small size also makes it difficult for players to spot and destroy, however, the Seeker makes a distinct "humming" sound which can alert a player of its presence. The Seeker is particularly useful for dealing with enemies around corners or in enclosed or indoor areas, as well as giving players advance warning of nearby enemies. Chaff grenades are a recommended counter to the Seeker.
