A small flying unit that is very similar to the Gargoyle but with less life and damage. Spawns in small to moderate sized groups.

Engagement & Tactics

Due to its small size and relatively quick movement speed, the shredder often injure or kill soldiers by ambush or surprise by attacking from areas that are not visible to the soldier. They spawn throughout the game, and can be a particular nuisance in early missions, especially on the Restore the BMDD network mission, where they will often force soldiers to halt repairs to run for back up. Due to their small life capacity, any MOS can easily kill shredder, and Area of Effect damage will counter them effectively. The shredder also has a fairly large detection range, which is important to note for MOS that have cloak.
