The switchblade is a small reconnaissance UAV armed with an explosive warhead that allows it to act as guided munitions if required. Any target zeroed in by the reticule will automatically be highlighted on the minimap for other Fireteam members.
It is an offensive Tier 1 Support Action for the Sniper class. The Switchblade is launched via a disposable mortar, so plenty of clearance is needed to launch. Once airborne, it is able to loiter for a short time allowing the operator to search for a target along the flight path. Once a target is spotted the Switchblade can swoop down and detonate upon impact.
