Call Of Duty: Warzone Is Getting A New Bomb Drone

It's coming months after players created their own makeshift one in-game.


Call of Duty: Warzone is getting a new field upgrade soon. Players have found a bomb drone, a combination of two existing in-game items, in some private matches of the battle royale.

"Wow they literally took a tactic the community used and made it part of the game," said Redditor Freshout420 in a thread about the bomb drone. The new item combines C4 and the recon drone, letting players set the C4 off after navigating the drone to a target.

Players have been making bomb drones of their own since the first season of Warzone when the game launched in March. One player would throw C4 onto a recon drone while their teammate flew it towards an enemy squad. They'd coordinate and set the C4 off once the drone got close enough. It's just one example of the creativity the community has used on the battlefield.

Bomb drones aren't an original idea, though. Fortnite players used two different explosive mines to create one back in June.

We could see a number of new items like the bomb drone come to Warzone once the battle royale integrates with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in December. Activision shared a long list of important details about how Modern Warfare, Warzone, and Black Ops Cold War will work together earlier this month. Hopefully Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Raven Software can squash some of the game breaking bugs that Warzone has become known for in the lead-up to December.

The melding of Black Ops Cold War into Warzone makes even more sense when considering that the game and the new Modern Warfare appear to be part of the same universe. If you don't care about spoilers, you can learn how they're connected with our explainer.
