"How can you hope to win a battle when your soldiers run away before the battle even begins? Pathetic!" --Cragger to a lion patrol in the beginning of the Great War.
Deserters are similar to spies in the fact that they use stealth and cunning as their primary tools. They begin each battle by looking scared or in some cases, terrified and running away, then looping around the enemy lines, using whatever cover possible and surprising the enemy, boxing them in and forcing them to surrender.
Weapons: Deserters favor small, weak weapons with weak-looking weapon skins and powerful modifications, essentially creating a sucker punch effect. Such weapons include: Micro Pulsars and Gatling Pistols with power and speed mods.
Vehicles: Deserters don't typically use vehicles but when need arises, speedorz and small planes are common choices.
