"Set and forget flying firepower support unit" ― Dronemaster class description

The Dronemaster is one of seven playable classes for Co-op Campaign in World War Z. This class was added with the release of the Dronemaster Update.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Dronemaster is a class escorted with their own personal firepower in a neat, flying package.

Practically all of the Dronemaster's perks were created to make their namesake tool more supportive, highly versatile, and even deadlier. This makes the Dronemaster a support fighter that provides additional firepower for himself and others with the launch of his special equipment. This also makes the Dronemaster heavily reliant on their equipment, debatably even more so than other classes do. Choosing the Dronemaster allows you to make the most out of your equipment. While you do use it for yourself most of the time, you should also consider using your technological marvels to help others once you have leveled up far enough to stretch your drones' utility to their fullest potential, enough to become something of an extra teammate for your group.

The Dronemaster's starting core perk doesn't grant any sort of passive buff like the other classes. Instead, it determines what weapon his equipment is outfitted with and establishes its charge use parameters.

The equipment of choice for the Dronemaster is the Quadrocopter. This unmanned tool hovers around its user and provides cover fire for them with its built-in taser to stun any enemies that get a little too close. However, with a few upgrades, it can be equipped with a pistol instead and eventually be able to soar elsewhere be it hovering around another teammate or flying directly into zekes in an explosive manner.
