The Ceph Spotters act as scouts for the Ceph. They look like a small floating orb with fins coming out its back. They have one large eye in the middle of their "head".
The Ceph Spotter has no weapons but can emit a short range EMP temporarily draining the players suit of energy. They are relatively easy to take down but self destruct on death causing some damage. They can also be hacked, temporarily disabling them.
