“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
CryptoSec Shepherds are small, quadrupedal drones created and used by the Paramilitary group CryptoSec. Often seen with a CryptoSec Trooper partner, these drones provide their ally with cover and offensive support.
Often seen defending a CryptoSec Trooper, these miniature mechs create an immune circular barrier for their partner. They will be completely defenseless, save for its Trooper ally, while activating the shield. However, when its shields are depleted or its partner is killed, the Shepherd will begin to rapidly move around and blast its enemies with a barrage of shock projectiles. If its shields were depleted, the Shepherd will still remain at its Troopers side until it regains its barrier, if its Trooper buddy dies, however, it will instead seek another partner and activate its shield.
