Flame Drones were variants of Drones that only appeared six weeks after Emergence Day. Flame Drones carried fuel tanks on their backs attached to a Scorcher Flamethrower, similar to that of Flame Grenadiers and Flame Boomers.


Locust War[]

Destruction of Halvo Bay[]

Flame Drones were encountered inside the Museum of Military Glory attacking Kilo Squad as the Gears tried to defend the Nassar Embry armor display.[1] They were later encountered again breeching the Courthouse and attacking the Onyx Guards inside.[2]

Personality and Traits[]

While they did carry a Scorcher Flamethrower and back-mounted fuel tanks similar to the Flame Grenadier and the Flame Boomer, they did not wear the same helmet as them. Instead, they wore standard Drone helmet variations. They also had less health then a Flame Grenadier, having the same health as a regular Drone.

The Flame Grenadier depicted with a Drone's body character model in the cutscene.

Behind the scenes[]

  • In the Gears of War 2 deleted scene Road to Ruin, there is an error shown when you distract two Drones and a Flame Grenadier with a concrete block. During the cutscene that plays, the Flame Grenadier is depicted having the character body model of a Drone.[3]
