Valkyrie Drones are an enemy in Call of Duty: Black Ops III on Gorod Krovi. They act similarly to Hellhounds, Spiders and Parasites of the previous maps. Upon the completion of a Valkyrie Drone wave, a Max Ammo power-up will drop.

They have a piece of headgear associated with them that offers significant resistance and additional damage against them when challenges are completed, the Valkyrie Drone Hat.


Valkyrie Drones spawn in between rounds 9-12, and every 8-10 rounds after that, along with zombies in later rounds. When a Valkyrie round starts, the screen takes a blue hue, electricity encircles the screen for a moment and Sophia announces the arrival of Valkyrie drones. They have three arms that shoot rather weak electricity, comparable to a Hellhound or Spider attack in previous maps.

The player can kill them by shooting the panel on its front to expose its core, then destroying the exposed camera, or the player can shoot off all their arms which will send the drone after the player in a self-destruct mode.

The player can also kill them by shooting or knifing them until it sustains enough damage, although knifing will yield the same number of points as shooting. When the drone is damaged enough, it will spiral a short distance to avoid being destroyed. When the drone is destroyed by losing its arms, it'll start sparking and subsequently charge at a player, and will follow them unlike when the camera is destroyed, in which case it'll charge at the last known location of the player who killed them. If shot or knifed until enough damage is sustained, it will simply explode into a blue smoke cloud.
