Reaper Salarian by AndrewRyanArt Reaper Salarian by AndrewRyanArt
My version of a salarian reaper enemy, not sure how he attacks but since he has no weapon maybe he just runs at you like a human husk, only faster.

I think he would attavk someway like Geth Stalker from first game. Jumping all over and shooting you with lasers and shit. I hated those things, but is is sad that they didn't returned in any form
Peacebasher Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2017
I can imagine this would be some sort of maintenance worker or have a type of laser gun embedded in his wrists.

I can feel Jhonen Vasquez would be chomping at the bit to make a Zim impression of that.
eldracm Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2016
Dunno why but I imagine these things as not being battlefield troops and acting more like maintenance for Reaper Harvesting Facilities or the Reaper Capital Ships themselves.

he looks sad :(
blackice20 Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2015
I'd think Salarian husks would use stealth tech, trigger ambushes, scale buildings and probably leap off ledges at you and shit.
Razzmatazzy Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2015
Ah these would remind me of the Twitchers from Dead Space -- move so fast they're a blur and they hit HARD. Probably with, as said before, a neural shock or overload, which would doubly suck.
MrAsh96 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2015
My guess is they would be like a more agile husk that focuses more on ambushes
DiscordianBrony Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2014
I like to think they act like a combination of ME1 husks, hoppers, and hunters.

They can cloak, hop motherf**king everywhere, and close in to deliver a palm-based Overload/Neural Shock.
tomalotuyo Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014
I think their hability should be "talking its enemy ear off", overloaded attack could be singing an opera song, maybe? Great work btw! :)
saywut97 Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014
well salarians are bright I doubt that these guys will just run at you

The Goblin,named after the mischievous entity from folklore,is physically weaker than even basic human Husks. However,it makes up for it in tactical planning,surpassing even a Marauder or Collector. These Reaper units have built-in cloaks that allow them to traverse the battlefield in safety until they can strike their enemies from behind whilst they least expect it. In addition to this deadly ability,Goblins can shoot super-heated plasma at their opponents in a similar fashion to Alliance combat engineers to burn their enemies,as well as drain the kinetic barriers of their enemies to restore their own.

Very descriptive, I can practically hear the codex voice over. :P
Haseo-Ani-Waya Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
"Faster and more vicious, but considerably weaker", perhaps? Seeing as how they lack strength in and of numbers for anything but STG work and all.
Bloodra1n Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2013
Something like the Geth Stalkers/Hoppers/Leapers/Sappers? Maybe even a little mouth laser, or some form of explosive, to take off on Salarian weapon aesthetics and functions?
halisme Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2013
It would act like a melee version of a get hopper, crawling along ceilings before dropping down onto Shepherd's squad.
Brett-the-Grey Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2013
Probably would have integrated tech abilities, like some weird and powerful Reaper version of a drone, or the ability to siphon shields.
Commander-Fillmore Featured By Owner May 18, 2013
That would be interesting to fight
JvalentineRE Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013
I was thinking they'd be like Geth stalkers from ME1
John-the-Enforcer Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2013
Worse yet, the Reapers would extend their lifespan...0_o'
Burnangel Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Actually since salerians have a pretty hyper active systems it would stand that your hypothesis would be correct. They'd fight like the husk but likely are way more agile than the husks. Furthermore its likely these types of reapers would be more intelligent than you everyday husk.

These... would fall apart like tissue paper...
MightyGaru Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013  Student General Artist
I could see the Reapers using these guys to actually do the altering and experimenting on other races. Like, since when a creature is Indoctrinated the Reaper gains control of your mind [and knowledge] they could use all the valuable information Salarians learn to be better at the whole "turning people into horrible monsters" thing. Although, the idea of them acting like Husks is pretty cool too.
Veyron722skyhook Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013
Hmm, an attack they do have is that they could have very long tongues. Javik says after all that they used to eat flies. Maybe they could be like frogs.
SavageInsight Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013
I love your artwork's style, but I disagree with this one. Salarians are incredibly quick with their brains, but not on their feet, and very technical. I can see them as moving a little more froglike, running with evolved frog-muscled sprinting legs creating things on the battlefield while using fire, frost and electrical attacks.
MrOriginal94 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012
If I had to guess I'd say they'd act like the geth hoppers from mass effect 1.
serpantscaLe Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
Iwas sure that Salarian-Reaper forces were Ajuntnants from Deception
Mora1970 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2012
You should get some serius cash for these, talent is strong with this one 8-)
Hedgey Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
great work!
SM51 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
Cue a Reaper Salarian singing gilbert and sullivan.
raw666 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012
Can I make a suggestion on a Salarian variant. That the Salarian have a snipper rifle similar to the Maruder, but on the back are pods that pop up to be those barriers to make. Sort of a cross with a Nemissis and Engineer. Except it can cloak as well.
009-863beta Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2012
It looks more like it would work like a geth hopper, with all the extra cartalege in there bodies. Tech nullification would work well with them too.

"Creeper," or "Crawler" seam's good if they are like that. (Even though it is speculation)
theheartofthewild Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
stealth.. give them stealth and eletrify the talons/claws and speed and their perfect. thats what i think :)
009-863beta Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012
I think that would work better with the Reaper Drell, wouldn't it?
Stonehandthegiant Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012
i got an idea why not call them Goblins have them use slightly enhanced tech powers from a reaper modified omni tool like incinerate and overload perhaps even sabotage and if you get to close it slashes you with an omni blade
Pierre-Caillou Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012
I wonder if he is still able to eat flies...
Sicarius07 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2012
If I might make a suggestion: Many salarians in-game used cloaking tech. Make them cloaking melee disablers called Ghosts. They sneak up on you while cloaked, and knock you out of cover, making you a sitting duck for a Ravager.
Prof-Stein Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
"They used to eat flies."
Reaperdestroyer Featured By Owner May 30, 2012
This looks exactly how I made my reaperized salarian. lol
thedo12 Featured By Owner May 22, 2012
With there natural speed and agility I think it would be fitting if they were reaper medics, they could take parts from dead allies and heal those who are injured.
Moonsword Featured By Owner May 13, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Well since the salarians are all about the STG... maybe they're like ninjas or something else insanely quick and flexible that's a bitch to land a hit on. You know, like how in dragon age elven darkspawn were shrieks?
ThunderFox69 Featured By Owner May 12, 2012
maybe reaperized version of there engineer abilities
syris427 Featured By Owner May 11, 2012
that is terrifying. nice work
LighterShadeOfGrey72 Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
How did you draw these? (AS in what method)
AndrewRyanArt Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Student General Artist
I start with a line layer, then value layer, then color and texture for finish
Chapomon Featured By Owner May 11, 2012
They could be like those geth hoppers from the first game that hop around; maybe shoots a laser from its mouth?
SkarmoryThePG Featured By Owner May 10, 2012

Cloaking Husk.
AndrewRyanArt Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Student General Artist
that would make a lot of sense, esp since salarians have the tech for it.
SkarmoryThePG Featured By Owner May 11, 2012
Exactly. Now add wall hopping and you have a stealth nightmare.
screwinon Featured By Owner May 7, 2012
Maybe a Husk with can use the powers of other Husks near by? I can see Salarians doing that, since most of the galaxy depends on their brilliance. :shrug:
