The Shredders are small drones traveling in packs and roam Rival Prospecting Facilities looking for intruders. By themselves, they pose little danger, but together they will tear a dwarf to shreds in seconds!
— Miner's Manual Description

Shredders are very small rival tech bots. They can appear if a Prospector Drone has been attacked along with Patrol Bots, can appear in Industrial Sabotage missions, or during rival waves in the Rival Presence mutator. They will primarily quickly fly around looking for targets to slam into.

It is rocket/missile like in appearance. The stabilization fins along its sides can be assumed to help it quickly zip around, and it has a glowing orange visual sensor on its front. In Season 03: Plaguefall, the SSG grenade was added, deploying 5 of an altered versions of the Shredder.


Shredders are fairly aggressive and will use melee only. Their attack consists of spinning in place and then ramming into the Dwarves, and they will pause before attempting to ram again. Upon being killed they will fall to the ground and explode.
