Pirate Cargo Drones are drones used by the Space Pirates to move supplies and materials, usually volatile or dangerous materials, such as Heavy Phazon Canisters, around the Pirate Homeworld. They are found at landing sites throughout the planet. While this goes unmentioned in their Logbook entry, the Cargo Drone's main cavity houses the disembodied head and spine of a Pirate Militia, suggesting that this is the fate of unruly Militia who disobey their masters.

Pirate Cargo Drones do not count toward the kill number in the records accessible in Samus Aran's Gunship.

Logbook entry

Pirate Cargo Drones were designed to assist with the transporting of supplies throughout the Pirate Homeworld. Their aerial capabilities allow them to navigate the underground catacombs with relative ease. Cargo usually consists of items too dangerous or volatile to be moved by hand.
