Overview[edit | edit source]
The Lightbender is the Bane's long range marksman. Though smaller and weaker than the average Thrax soldier, their rifles can dish out better damage than their Thrax counterparts. They are called Lightbenders in the field because they have a natural ability to turn invisible. Scientists say that they can bend light around themselves, making them difficult to see like the AFS stealth suit.
Lightbenders have little health and almost any weapon can take them out relatively quickly. Due to their weakness, sonic weapons can take out Lightbenders in one or two shots.
