Multiplayer Arsenal: Assault Class Buddy Drone


Previously, we introduced you to Killzone Shadow Fall’s multiplayer Assault class and its remarkable offensive and defensive capabilities. Now meet one of the most high-tech gadgets in the Assault class arsenal: the Buddy Drone, an OWL-like combat drone designed for infantry use.

Assault players looking to boost their defenses and add a little extra firepower can choose to have their own personal combat drone as their secondary ability. They can even customize its appearance with downloadable skins.

 

Similar to the OWL, but simplified for general infantry use with a focus on personal defense, the Buddy Drone is a small autonomous UAV that will follow the player and attack any enemies in his immediate vicinity. It's a great counter against flanking enemy players and those looking to sneak up and melee, and boosts the Assault player's offensive potential should he be outnumbered.

 

Powerful but not indestructible, the Buddy Drone does suffer from a relatively short action radius and a vulnerability to explosive and E-Pulse munitions. Like all multiplayer abilities, the Buddy Drone can be turned on or off in Custom Warzones – you can even set up an all-Assault, all-Buddy Drone Warzone for massive man-versus-drone battles.

Keep an eye on Killzone.com, because we’ll have more information about the various gadgets and gear for the Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer classes soon!
