Fast alien infantry unit equipped with advanced suction packs capable of rapid resource extraction.
Often misunderstood and not used enough, the Raider is actually pretty good. Their most useful feature being they somehow extract twice the resources that normal troops do, which is quite a handy trick. Also they can speedily flatten bases after all turrets have been destroyed. Behind Rhinos or Titans they are also pretty efficient at sucking the life out of guns and make an ideal combo for lower Warp Gates because they only occupy 1 stall. For players just starting this is probably their best choice—behind shield troops like Rhinos. They resemble alligators and seem to be some sort of reptile.
Raiders require a level 2 or higher Tech Lab to research.
