MODERN WARFARE 3 POINTSTREAK SPOTLIGHT – RECON DRONE
The Recon Drone is a formidable pointstreak, available in the Support strike package as a 10-point streak. Giving the player the ability to pilot a small reconnaissance helicopter, the recon drone helps teammates by tagging enemy personnel. Once tagged, enemy players show up on the mini-map in real time. All enemy soldiers can be tagged, regardless of perks being used. Even enemy UAV’s can be tagged. On open maps, such as Mission, Village, and Interchange, the recon drone is devastating, especially in games of Ground War.
The recon drone is best defeated with a well-thrown EMP grenade, or by directly shooting it down with gunfire, giving those with blind eye pro a time to shine. In the hands of an adept pilot, however, the recon drone is a small and nimble target to hit and take down, making it a useful pointstreak that can benefit the entire team. From an XP standpoint, the recon drone lets skilled players rack up massive amounts of experience and is another advantage of this pointstreak.
