  • Despite the project's title mentioning the "capture" of Drones, the player will only be able to control them during the current mission and not be able to interrogate them afterwards.
  • Captured Drones have a overload ability that can damage nearby objects.
  • Captured Drones will explode at the end of the mission. Such Drones, and ones that self-destructed will leave behind a Drone Wreck even after their unconventional destruction, so if you are in need of collecting said items you don't need to reconsider.
  • Captured Drones can use a medium to long range repair beam on the player's MECs or S.H.I.V.s which restores 3 HP per turn.
  • They can't overwatch.
