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.
- Sometimes if two pods are directly next to each other, you can have two robots following you at one time.
