The Reaver's devastating heavy Energy Machine Gun is effective versus most enemy units, in particular raiders. It performs poorly versus static defense, so do not use it as an assault unit. Counter by staying out of their range, as they are slow. Reavers quickly regenerate damage when out of combat.

Tactics and Strategy

The Reaver is a fearsome combatant at close quarters, but suffers from low range and speed. As such, they are best employed in combination with another unit (like the Glaive or Ronin) which can deal with any opposing long-range attackers. Alternatively, an Iris or multiple Charons will let your Reavers close the distance before the opposition can react.
