Is Blind Eye broken against the Warthog?

I have an anti-air class with blind eye but when a team put up a warthog and I was unprotected. Any idea why this is the case? It is an AI controlled air streak is it not?

We could remove the crayon for you! It could vastly increase your brain power! Or it could possibly kill you.
Hmm... increase my killing power eh? Let's do it!

I noticed this a while back. I had Blind Eye on but the 'hog still got me.

I think it might be broken but I have only seen a 'hog in one game so far so I don't even think it's a massive problem even if it's never fixed. Hell it might even give the 'hog a much needed niche...

Well, I suppose it's time to get kidnapped again...

Maybe you can't be seen, but if you're close to another team member, you can still die by the blast radius.

I dont think it ever protected you from it.

Blind eye protects you from;

Hunter killers
Stealth Chopper
Escort Drone
Swarm.

Juts go in a building next time you hear one called in and laugh at its futile attempts to kill you.

Cause the Warthog sometimes shoots at random places.

I was not near a single other team mate.

It is an AI controlled air streak. It says in the description that blind eye makes you undetectable to all AI controlled air streaks. I would assume it should work against that streak in that case.

Ok, so that brings me to a question. Can the Warthog be shot down? Has anyone done it?

In the two times I've seen an enemy use it, I tried to shoot it down with an FHJ. Either I didn't hit it enough or it outran the rockets I shot at it.

It has at least one or two flare sets before it will actually take damage. It shouldn't be able to outrun your rocket if you lock and fire while it's still active.

As for the original question, I too have gotten killed by the Warthog with Blind Eye on (and Cold Blooded). I always chalked it up to stupid teammates huddled beside me, but I'm not certain that's the case.

I think the Warthog is a special scorestreak that can't be countered at all. I have also noticed that in it's 3 runs, if it does not get a fixed amount of kills, it will go for a 4th run before it leaves completely. I could be wrong though, but it's my observation of the scorestreak.
