Assassin Drones are similar in weapons as the Kantus, but wear camoflauge jumpsuits and have darker skin then regular Locust, do to more activity in the sunlight. Wielding chainsaw staffs and Longshot sniper rifles they disable or wipe out squads that have become nuisances. Wearing their armored jumsuits and actively being stealthily, they are considered harder to kill than Kantus not because of armor, but because of the way they fight. If they sustain damage they withdraw and return with Grubs and sometimes with Berserkers. They beara resemblance to the latter as they have similar faces, possibly indicating a genetic relationship.
