  • Servitors are low-altitude mechanicals which provide defensive buffs to nearby allies, as well as organizing communications.
  • Shanks are the Fallen's flying robots. They do very little damage and are dispatched very easily, making them more of an annoyance than an enemy. Higher level shanks may have different weaponry and shielding.
