As their name suggests, the Assimilators are bio-mechanical constructs designed to assimilate alien technologies. Similar to human combat engineers, they are capable of repairing friendly structures, as well as capturing structures and walker husks, even those of human origin. When immobile, they are capable of turning invisible.
Assimilators have two different unit variants: Scrin and Reaper-17 have one variant, Traveler-59 has another variant that can obtain the Advanced articulators upgrade. The only other Scrin unit like this is the Disintegrator.
