A weak but moderately fast flying unit that spawns in small to medium sized groups. Apiaries will spawn groups of swarmers periodically until the apiary is killed.

Engagement & Tactics

While swarmers do not often pose a threat to the squad, their quantity and frequency of appearance will increase significantly during the Kill the Apiaries mission. The swarmers makes the mission slightly more difficult, as the swarmer will act as a defense for the apiary against soldiers that are approaching apiaries and can damage or kill them if they do not anticipate their spawn.
