The Command Bot was a variant of Shepherd produced by DB Industries. Unlike regular Shepherds, Command Bots were unarmed and featured a display and camera in place of the head. Their primary role was long range communication.
Three command bots were used by First Minister Mina Jinn on the 25th anniversary of Victory Day, at the end of the conflict with the Outsiders, respectively during the raid on Settlement 5, attack on Fort Umson and assault on the Stroud Estate, as she tried to negotiate with a team of Outsiders suspected of kidnapping COG citizens.
The following morning, the team of outsiders investigating the Swarm led by former sergeant Marcus Fenix encountered another Command Bot on the outskirts of Speyer. During the conversation between Jinn and JD Fenix, three pouncer quills hit the bot, infecting and thus turning it into the first known Reject, which attempted to kill JD. That event revealed the Swarm's ability to possess DeeBees and turn them against their creators.
