Swarm

The Swarm originates from Etter Syra, a planet covered with oceans of poisonous acid in the Tau Ceti system. The Swarm is literally a mega-swarm of bugs. They have no use for technology, but they can modify themselves as they need. Every unit or 'building' in the Swarm is just another bug with a special set of abilities.

Leviathans

These huge alien bugs have a heavy chitinous carapace that protects them. This makes them very tough, but pretty slow. Use them to distract enemy cannons from your weaker units, and to crush walls.

Megabats

Walls can't keep these huge bug bats out. They fly free around the enemy base, spitting acid on everything they meet. Note that you’ll have to perform certain quests before the Megabat unit is unlocked in your Recruiter.

Widows

Widows are huge bugs with lots of health. When they’re finally killed, they explode and release a number of Leviathans.
