- A Hijacker relieved after knowing no need to worry

Hijackers are daring individuals employed by the Scorpion Cell, whose primary role is to steal enemy vehicles. To do this, they can disguise themselves as almost any enemy infantry.

Description

The Scorpion Cell is the Epsilon sub-faction that got the short end of the stick when it came to getting new, advanced technologies. This has lead to some soldiers being trained and specialized in the art of hot wiring empty vehicles and capturing manned enemy vehicles on the field in order to bolster the Cell's numbers. The Hijacker is capable of capturing almost any manned vehicle. In order to get close enough, he is able to disguise as enemy infantry as well. He is also skilled enough to avoid getting crushed. Combined with the Shadow Ring, he can become an unexpected game changer.
