The Fury Drone is a kamikaze drone used by the Latin Confederation, which burrows into the ground and lies in wait until an enemy gets close, at which it will surprise them by leaping onto the unfortunate enemy before exploding.

Official description

Latin Confederation's Fury Drones keep hiding where they're least expected, buried deep in the ground and invisible to their enemies. When the right moment comes, they ambush them by jumping out of the hole they dug and exploding at the moment of impact.

Fury Drones are perfect infantry and vehicle killers, however they do not become active until they are deployed. Their position can be changed even after the drone has already hidden itself, but if found out it'll be destroyed as easily as the Terror Drones are if proper weapons are used against them. Once a Fury Drone makes a jump, its explosion cannot be stopped.[1]

Overview

Fury Drone is a drone that is suitable as a base defense, Latin Confederation commanders can deploy a large number of Fury Drones on the roads around the base to make them as a "flame mine" and attack the enemies who attempt to attack from these roads, generating flames to stop the enemy reinforcements in the rear to move on.

As a one-time defense unit, Fury Drone is very cheap, despite the high construction requirements. However, once there has unit that can detect stealth in the enemy's offensive forces, Fury Drones will be easily destroyed by enemies outside its defense. Therefore, when such enemies pass through these areas, it is best to transfer the Fury Drones deployed there in time.

Appearances

Act Two

  • The Fury Drone is introduced as a buildable unit in Exist to Exit.
  • In Stormbringer, the enemy mind-controlled Russians have access to Fury Drones, which are used to protect the eastern part of their island.
  • In the Covert Ops mission Gridlock, capturing a Napalm Storage near the PsiCorps base will give the player four Fury Drones as reinforcements, and unlocks them for construction from the Allied War Factory, requiring Mercury Network Uplink to be built.
  • In Earthrise, the Fury Drone is a buildable unit although the player is playing as Russia instead of the Latin Confederation.

Challenges

  • In the Moltencore Challenge, the entire island except for the small area around the challengers' starting position is peppered with hidden Fury Drones.

Assessment

+
  • Highly destructive against units, infantry and even buildings.
  • Cloaked when deployed while waiting for an ambush.
  • Very fast, can move quickly into ambush positions.
  • Deployment is not permanent, meaning it still can reposition itself after deployed.
  • Inexpensive suicide unit ($550).
  • Successful explosion also creates fire around the area, damaging nearby units.
  • Being a drone, immune to poison, radiation, mind control, hijacking.
  • Long jumping range.
  • Can detect disguised enemies.
  • Can enter smaller transports (takes 2 slots).

  • Very fragile.
  • When detected by the enemy, it can be destroyed easily.
  • Cannot target aircraft.
  • Bad trade if the Fury Drone automatically acquires, jumps and explodes on trivial targets. This means it has to be micromanaged constantly for full effectiveness.
  • Only available at Tier 3, after a Battle Lab is built.
  • Has no defenses of its own while in mobile form.
