JD Fenix, upon encountering Elite Drones at Tollen Dam

Elite Drones represented the best of Swarm Drones. Distinguished by their black hide, they were tougher, better equipped, and more aggressive than their lessers, making them the second-most dangerous bipeds in the Swarm behind Scions.

HistoryEdit

Elite Drones were first encountered by JD and Marcus Fenix, Delmont Walker, and Kait Diaz at Tollen Dam.

StrategiesEdit

Elite Drones equipped with a Lancer make liberal use of its chainsaw, especially in Horde 3.0, so engage them from a distance to avoid the insta-kill.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The Elite Drone is a playable multiplayer character for the Swarm in Gears of War 4, and has three unlockable character skins, excluding its Default skin: Color Blast, Onyx Gold, and Spectre. Its Onyx Gold skin is only available in the Onyx Gold Swarm Pack.
