Guardian drones are alien robots encountered on board Mothership Zeta.


Guardian drones are a more advanced model of the support drone, armed with a drone cannon. If you posses the drone control device, they can be recruited as followers, albeit one at a time. Like other robots in the Capital Wasteland, they can be deactivated if the player acquires the Robotics Expert perk.


  • Guardian drones are not very common until after the space walk.
  • You can shoot their hover platforms to temporarily disable their movement.
  • Guardian drones can have their cannon shot off.


Guardian drones appear in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta.
