The UAV is a recon ship that grants the player and team a rough outline of the enemy's positioning. If used correctly, it will give players the upper hand by allowing them to flank around enemies and get kills!

UAV - Tips & Tricks

UAV - Killstreak Traits

Pulses Minimap

Pulses Minimap

When activated, the UAV will pulse the map to reveal enemy positions for you and your team. Pulses happen at set intervals and the UAV will stop operating after some time has passed.

Pulses Reveal Enemy's Last Location

Your UAV will reveal the enemy's last known location when it pulses the map. These are why the markers on the minimap are static. Be careful when approaching the area as the enemy may have repositioned already!

Can Be Countered Or Destroyed

The UAV can be countered by other Killstreaks such as the Counter UAV. It can also be destroyed by enemies that shoot at it, or use anti-air weapons.

UAV - Killstreak Tips

Use After Teammate's UAV Expires

Use After Teammate

It would be best to use this Killstreak if your team does not have an active UAV. However if your team already has an active UAV, wait for it to expire or get destroyed before deploying your own. This way, the duration of UAV is maximised.

Wait For Counter UAV To Expire

Before deploying your UAV, check your minimap to see if it's scrambled. If it is, this means that an enemy has deployed a Counter UAV. Wait for your minimap to get unscrambled before deploying the UAV to maximize its duration.

Use In Enclosed Areas

Since the UAV can be shot down from the air, it would be best to use this Killstreak in tight maps that have little open areas. Enemies will not be able to shoot down the UAV if there is a roof blocking their line of sight.
