The blog for Killzone: Shadow Fall has been updated with information pertaining to the game’s OWL attack drone.
According to Guerrilla Games, the drone is an advanced hovering weapon used by the Shadow Marshals It provides extra tactical abilities in the field, and attaches itself to a Marshal’s suit until he gives it an order.
When damaged, the OWL automatically returns and regenerates health until it receives an order again.
It also has several modes which can be accessed via the Touch Pad on the DualShock 4: Attack Mode, Zipline Mode, Stun Mode and Shield Mode.
According to the developers: “Attack Mode orders the OWL to move to an area and attack anyone within range; alternatively, you can tell it to attack a single enemy directly. Zipline Mode gets the OWL to fire a zipline, allowing the Shadow Marshal to traverse incredibly quickly from point A to B. Stun Mode is similar to Attack Mode, but lets the OWL use up its energy to create an area-of-effect shock blast that turns off all nearby electronics and stuns humanoid enemies within range. Shield Mode creates an energy shield right in front of the Shadow Marshal, allowing bullets/projectiles to pass through from his POV but stopping bullets coming in from the other side.”
