#26 Dragonfly Droid

| November 29, 2010 | 0 Comments

The Dragonfly is an airborne combat model droid. It measures about the same size as a fighter jet and has the maneuverablility to match. In fact, it’s their agility that makes them so dangerous to the human fleet, often outflying and outgunning human ships whenever they’re sighted. The one thing they can’t match the human jets for is top speed, so the main tactic when dragonflies are sighted? RUN.

#25 Scorpion Droid

| November 29, 2010 | 0 Comments

When the droids redesigned themselves into new bodies during the droid wars, human psychology played a significant role in the resulting form. The machines didn’t want a form that just functioned, they wanted a form that would be intimidating, decimating their human enemies emotionally before anyone ever pulled a trigger.

A 14-foot long metal scorpion does that quite nicely.

Beyond the form, though, the Scorpio is a combat droid that is equipped with shield generators and a mean set of claws. It has no projectile payload simply because the machines felt the maneuverability, efficient stabbing weaponry, and sheer fear factor made it an effective enough ground combat droid.

The machines don’t like to waste resources, like extra guns, if they don’t have to.

#24 Mosquito Droid

The mosquito is a surveillance droid. It only measures about 1 ft tall, but these little guys are capable of sensing many different kinds of radio waves, light waves, infrared, ultra violet light, and even EMF imaging.

#23 Spider Droid

| November 23, 2010 | 0 Comments

The spider droid is the foot soldier of the droid world.  They are fairly easy to manufacture, so the underground factories put them out in droves.  Their combat capabilities are somewhat limited, but it’s their mass numbers that is their greatest strength.  An entire field of these coming at you looks a lot more intimidating than just one (they only stand about 18 inches tall).

The funny thing though is that even though are dedicated to field combat, thought and reasoning is not beyond them.  What roboticist wouldn’t kill to know what these little guys are thinking…
