Drop Pods act as vehicles within the universe of Titanfall. They are used to deploy automated and human infantry to the ground with high precision. Drop Pods can be pressurized for the deployment of human occupants. The pods may also be internally reconfigured in many ways to deliver a wide variety of payloads. Distortion Braking Technology allows drop pods to streak in but decelerate to a survivable speed prior to hitting the ground. The braking results in a visible 'donut-like' distortion effect in the sky, and a bowel shaking, low frequency sound that is hard to miss. 
These pods are one of the most effective rapid deployment methods that either side can use, as they can deliver grunts, spectres or on occasion pilots from a ship above orbit to ground in just 17 seconds.
Drop Pods are frequently used more than Drop-ships thanks to their small occupant size and fast deployment, the drop pod will consist of a squad of 3 to 4 Spectres or Grunts. The drop pod can not be used for cover as it will shortly disappear after deployment. Titans can walk through drop pods, killing its occupants before they even step out.
Unlike Dropships, Drop Pods can't be destroyed.

- The Drop Pods are similar in design to those seen in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, however it can seat five occupants at most and can be manually redirected mid-flight.
