For the similar killstreak, see Counter-UAV.

The Counter-Spy Plane is killstreak featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified, Call of Duty: Vanguard and a scorestreak in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

Overview

The effect is the same as the Counter-UAV from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and 3. When in effect, enemies' minimaps will be covered with static. Like the Spy Plane, it can be shot down. They can be distinguished from regular spy planes in the air because they fly counter-clockwise.

Call of Duty: Black Ops

"Temporarily disables enemy mini-map."
— In-game description.


The Counter Spy Plane appears in Call of Duty: Black Ops as a 4 killstreak. When called in, it obscures every map an enemy player has with static, although the outline of the map is still view able in the pause menu. This also means that when calling in a killstreak which requires a map (such as a Napalm Strike) the map will also be covered in static making it very hard to accurately place the strike. Similarly, the Counter-Spy Plane has the ability to mask the position or presence of incoming hostile kill-streaks such as Napalm Strike, Rolling Thunder, Mortar, Chopper Gunner and similar items which have a unique icon on the mini-map, making their approach unpredictable. The Counter-Spy Plane also greatly slows down an enemy team, as they have to rely on their eyes and ears purely to locate enemies.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified

"Temporarily disables enemy radar."
— In-game description.

The Counter-Spy Plane returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified, again as a 4 killstreak with the same effect.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

"Scramble enemy mini-maps and disable hostile Missile Turrets for a short time."
— In-game description.


The Counter-Spy Plane returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War as a scorestreak.

When called, the aircraft will jam the enemy player's minimap for 20 seconds unless Spycraft is equipped. The scorestreak can also jam enemy SAM Turrets, deactivating them as long as the plane is in the map's airspace.

Unlike previous iterations, the Counter-Spy Plane now takes 2 rockets to fully destroy it.

Call of Duty: Vanguard


The Counter Spy Plane returns in Call of Duty: Vanguard as a Killstreak.

Trivia

Call of Duty: Black Ops

  • Even though the Counter-Spy Plane lasts for 30 seconds, it can only be viewed for 25 seconds and during that time, it can be shot down.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

  • The aircraft model closely resembles an E-2 Hawkeye.
