|[List of appearances]|
Saboteurs have the appearance of an Alien Drone. The only difference are the small kits they carry with them to repair and hack technology. Saboteurs are, as seen in the game, an opaque green colour. They are thinner than normal minifigures and have a sloped and narrow head. Their feet are rather large in proportion to the rest of the minifigure. In cutscenes of the game, only their arms were seen to move. However, during gameplay, their legs are the only moving appendages.
Saboteurs can fix damaged Alien vehicles and technology. They can also hack into human ones. Once this is done, they can also repair it and use it for Alien means. They can not hack human vehicles but can take over a human factory. Once this is done, generating Alien-controlled human vehicles is a simple matter.
Alien Saboteurs have very little health, no means of attack or defense and move rather slowly, making them very vulnerable to attack.
When infiltrating an enemy complex, traveling in groups or in dropships are the most effective means of success. When in groups, the enemy defense turret focus their attack on one Saboteur at a time, leaving the others to safely get behind enemy lines, into the heart of the base. Dropships are quicker but more risky, as they have very little health and provide a clear target for defense turrets. If a dropship manages to survive getting past the turrets, every Saboteur lives. If the dropship is destroyed, every Saboteur is also eliminated.
- Saboteurs cost 500 credits in Crystalien Conflict, while standard Alien drones cost 200.
