General

The Hunter Swarm is a powerful squadron that deals Alien Damage, essentially an upgraded Ranger Swarm. It is only usable on Xeno Division Hulls and A.X.I.S. Hulls.

Notably, it has a much wider flanking angle than other ship squadrons, comparable to that of the Spectre Wing.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Hunter Swarms have the range of Ranger Swarms, the speed of Gladiator Swarms, and increased health and damage output.

Hunter Swarms flank their enemies almost directly from the sides, enabling them to evade incoming fire by retargeting other opponents in front or behind the main target relative to your Paladin Carrier.

Disadvantages

Hunter Swarms severely lack health compared to drones such as the Bluetail Drone, making them easy to take out by Xeno Division Ship Weapons. They are also poor in damage, although they take up much less mass as a result.

Alien Damage is automatically resisted by Xeno Division Hulls and A.X.I.S. Hulls, hence this swarm is rather ineffective in Tier 6 combat.
