Deadeyes are humanoid DeeBees that are a sniper class of the Shepherd on the battlefield, and are specialized in wielding the EMBAR Railgun. They have less health then Shepherds, though this is offset by the damage their rifles can deal.
Deadeyes are identified and named after their cyclopean heads. This large singular eye acts as a giant scope for their EMBARs, which is why the Railgun lacked any iron sights. This is to deny the enemy an ergonomic weapon when a Deadeye is destroyed.
Behind the scenesEdit
