For the Archwing counterpart, see Attack Drone (Archwing Enemy).

Attack Drones are deployed by Fusion MOAs when they reach about 50% health, but can be avoided if you destroy the MOA during its short deploying period.

Due to their fast-firing weapon, hovering nature, and immunity to crowd control status (e.g.: ragdoll, stun), they pose a big threat.

Their attacks are very similar if not identical to laser turrets found in the Void, probably due to the fact that they are a direct result of the Corpus integrating Orokin technology directly into theirs. Drones are sent as a syndicate death squad by Cephalon Suda.


  • The Drone's rapid firing usually cripples its targets very quickly, but the projectiles themselves have travel time. So, avoidance is a must.
    • Unlike the Corpus Tech, these Drones can fire at full speed instantaneously.
    • Drones do 7 base damage at level 1.
    • Their projectiles are slower than those shot with the Tech's CorpusMachineGun Supra.
    • There is also a delay between rapid fire bursts.
  • They do not portray similar flight patterns to those of support Ospreys, instead they charge against their targets and fire like moving turrets.
  • Drones do not have rotating guns like the MOAs, which makes them very dependent on the turn rate of their entire bodies.
    • Since their turn rate is somewhat slow compare to the other Corpus units, this can be taken to advantage.
  • It would seem that the Drones are exceptionally weak against Banshee's Sonar130xDark Sonar, allowing any shot to most locations to deal lethal damage.
  • One can spot a Drone without a radar by listening to its roaring hover engines.
  • Critical Hits seem to have altered damage outputs against the Drones. Having high values on such weapons is surprisingly effective against them.
  • Despite the immunity of slow from Cold Damage, the Drone is not immune to the slow of NovaIcon272 Nova's MolecularPrime130xDark Molecular Prime and RhinoIcon272 Rhino's RhinoStomp130xDark Rhino Stomp.
  • The Drone's model is solid and knocking the Drone down with a Flying Kick is impossible, thus allowing players to slide over the Drone to allow greater dodges.
