They are typically docked on a Planetary Assault Carrier. When unleashed, they can swarm the enemy and overwhelm them with their plasma guns. When destroyed, they are automatically replaced after a period of time. Like nearly all Scrin aircraft, they automatically heal and become more powerful when inside an ion storm.
The Invader is buffed upon entering an Ion Storm by adding +25% damage and reducing incoming damage by adding 25% damage reduction, and being healed for 5% of its life for every second of the Ion Storm effect. This effect is lost shortly after it leaves the storm.
