The Beast Riders are a less combat oriented class of Drone that are known to ride on Bloodmounts and Reavers, using them as combat tools for the Horde. They are the most intelligent type of drone but are also the least combat oriented of the Horde, with the exception of Butchers and Engineers.
===Animal Affinity=== (Ex) Beast Riders get a +5 on ride checks to ride Locust creatures.
Round 1: Direct Reaver into a squad of Gears. If landing on one or two is possible, take that chance instead.
Round 2: Shoot at open Gears and direct the Reaver to crush or destroy any cover.
Round 3: If injured, direct the Reaver to fly away, possibly with a captured Gear or Stranded. If still healthy, direct the Reaver to atack the remaining Gears. Leave one Gear alive for questioning.
