"A proximity triggered drone that tracks enemies and explodes when near them."
— In-game description.

The Explosive Drone is a lethal equipment introduced in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It is a proximity device shot from the Exo Launcher that sticks to any surfaces. It arms shortly after deployment. It works similarly to Claymores and I.E.D.s from previous titles. It looks very similar to Shock Charges. The Explosive Drone is difficult to hide due to its bright blinking light.


  • Destroying one of these drones with any of the Launchers will count towards the 'Destroy 5 Recon or Assault Drones' camo challenge.
