The Detection Drone is a sensor carrying robot used by the Hierarchy to replace a radar structure.


Detection Drones enable radar and have a scan pulse ability that dispels the fog of war in the targeted area and cleanses effects from units such as viruses or Phase. They are unarmed, but can trample some enemy infantry units.
