The Dropshot is a new weapon in Gears of War 4. It is a modified mining tool that fires an aerial mine/drill bit which floats in a straight line over the battlefield for as long as the trigger is pressed. Once released, the mine will spin downwards violently, detonating after it hits the ground. If a direct hit on an enemy is achieved, the mine will drill into their head, decapitating them and causing their body to convulse until the mine detonates.
