The Revenant is a rogue Drone class Raider NPC that is unique in that it is the only NPC capable of firing Nuclear Warheads. It is rare to locate as it has no set location and rarely spawns making it difficult to find.
Killing the Revenant will count towards the Drone Clearance assignment and reward players with rare loot such as Merits, Tuning Kits and Nuclear Warheads.
The Revenant NPC was added in-game unannounced in Game Update 08 - Second Anniversary! on the 15th of May 2013. It was then officially announced via the teaser post on Facebook 2 days later.
