The Pyramid has a host of modifiable drones used to perform every task imaginable, from aerial scouting to sewage and waste management, but the most visible are so-called "Scarab" salvage drones which secure sites in the ruins, gather resources, and bring them back to headquarters, all under remote control from pilots in the Pyramid. Salvage drones are about the size of a pick-up truck and are multi-modal, flying to their destination on a quartet of rotors, then converting to a crab-like configuration for urban combat and cargo transport.
