Warriors (Tyranicus gladius in High Gothic) are heavy melee Tyranids. They are effective against infantry and emit a synapse effect enhancing other close combat Tyranids.

  • Cannot enter buildings or transports
  • Projects a synapse aura, enhancing nearby lesser Tyranid creatures
  • If Warrior models die, lesser Tyranids within synapse range suffer damage and knockback
