Drone's cloaking devices

I hadn't realized it, but this article looks to mostly deal with Mass Effect, not Mass Effect 2. in ME2, the geth recon drones have cloaking devices. This ability is specifically mentioned by one of your squadmates on Haestrom. I'm not sure how this could get worked into the article however. I don't remember drones cloaking in ME either.

When and where on Haestrom? I can remember them saying anything about cloaking drones. Lancer1289 00:05, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
I was playing on Insanity. The first time the drones are introduced (three are hovering near the entrance of the first arena where you meet a Geth Prime. As soon as you see/shoot them, they cloak away (sometimes... seems bugged), and a squad mate mentions it. Dammej 00:07, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, I guess I'll have to check that. Lancer1289 00:08, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
It's worth noting that, in previous playthroughs, I never saw them cloak either. It's entirely possible that it only happens at high difficulty levels. I did always hear their comment about cloaking however. Dammej 00:14, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Well I guess I'm the one who is wrong here. Just managed to get to that point, heard the comment, and saw the drones cloak. Also found a youtube video that confirms it. So it looks like cloaking is part of drones. I'll just modify the info because they never cloaked in ME. Lancer1289 00:24, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
They definetely cloak even on the lowest difficulty setting, not sure whether if on the first playthrough or not. Setimir92 01:06, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

The drones definitely cloaks in Haestrom. If I remember correctly, it was near the place with huge pillars and Geth Primes. Teugene 05:02, June 8, 2010 (UTC)


I added the cleanup tag because this article needs info about Assault Drones, Rocket Drones, and the Geth Recon Drone in ME2. It's possible that each of those deserve their own page, but I just added it here for now. Dammej 02:42, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Indeed they all deserve their own page because we have pages of all enemies. Info here should be limited to a brief overview and should provide a link to the main article. I believe UERD is working on a Geth Recon Drone page, and I'll see about the other pages. Lancer1289 02:45, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Do we really need a separate page for Assault Drone and Rocket Drone? In ME2, they have exactly the same stats, and they even look exactly the same. The only difference between the two is that one shoots rockets and the other shoots what sounds like M-8 Avenger fire. Can't we just have a single page for both? Dammej 04:44, June 27, 2010 (UTC)
