COD: Warzone | Does Advanced UAV show Ghost?

Call of Duty: Warzone has a huge map that accommodates a large number of players. As expected, deploying a UAV is the best way to reveal those players’ locations, and the Ghost perk is the best way to stay hidden from UAVs. But what about advanced UAVs? Does running Ghost still keep you hidden, or will an advanced UAV reveal Ghost player locations?

Does the Advanced UAV show Ghost in Warzone?

The advanced UAV in Call of Duty: Warzone does not show players running the Ghost perk. Anyone using Ghost will not be detected or revealed by any UAV, including times when players attempt to launch an advanced UAV.

The interaction between Ghost and advanced UAVs in Warzone has caused a lot of debate. Numerous players have reported deploying advanced UAVs only to get surprised by enemies who didn’t appear on their radar. Many players even went to the Warzone subreddit to report that Ghost was bugged.

As it turns out, Ghost isn’t bugged. Advanced UAVs in Warzone don’t show or reveal Ghost players because there actually aren’t any advanced UAVs in Warzone. Instead, deploying three UAVs simultaneously simply expands the effect to reveal the entire map.

As such, the Ghost perk in Warzone acts exactly as its description implies: It makes players “undetectable by UAVs, Radar Drones, and Heartbeat Sensors.”

The main point of confusion here hinges around the fact that advanced UAVs in Modern Warfare do reveal Ghost players. Thankfully, after extensive testing from both players and streamers, we now know that there simply isn’t an advanced UAV in Warzone. In other words, Ghost works exactly as intended, while advanced UAVs are less capable than we’d been lead to believe.

Using the Ghost perk in Call of Duty: Warzone will keep you hidden from UAVs. Advanced UAVs, if you can still call them that, will not show Ghost players or reveal their locations. Keep that in mind before you spend your money in an attempt to detect enemy locations.
