Warzone Season 2 Reloaded brought the Advanced UAV to Containment Monitor buy stations, and YouTuber JGOD has explained in-depth why this new streak is better than the triple UAV.
It’s been known in Warzone for some time that if you call in three UAVs at once, you’ll receive an ‘Advanced UAV’ for about forty seconds. However, this doesn’t act like a true Advanced UAV, as players with the Ghost perk won’t show up when they’re nearby.
As YouTuber JGOD demonstrates, a triple UAV will reveal every player on the map with directional arrows, but as soon as you get within 250 meters of a Ghosted player, they will no longer show up on the map.
The triple UAV is especially useful for knowing the safe areas of the map, or for finding out where lots of players are when going for high kill games.
With Warzone’s mid-Season 2 update, Advanced UAVs came to the new Containment Monitor Stations found in bunkers and missile silos. These powerful streaks could previously be found inside locked bunkers along with the Foresight perk, but now they can be purchased for $12,000 from the upgraded buy stations.
After buying the Advanced UAV, you can carry it around like a regular killstreak, which already gives it a slight advantage over the triple UAV method.

The benefits go even further, with JGOD explaining how the Advanced UAV “will show every single player on the map and there is nothing anyone can do to counter it once you’ve called it.”
Unlike the triple UAV, once you get within 250 meters of Ghosted players, they’ll appear as a regular UAV dot. You won’t be able to see their direction, but the elevation marker beside the dot will remain and is just as, if not more, important.
It won’t take a full squad long to save up $12,000 for the streak, and JGOD recommends saving it until you’re in around the “top 8” players or teams. The circle will be small enough that every players’ location will be vital, and you can plan your position in the final circle accordingly.
