DR-1s are humanoid DeeBees that are slower but stronger than the regular Shepherds. Armed with the Overkill shotgun, they use jets in their feet to shift sideways and evade attacks, and even 'jump' over cover. When they take enough damage, their core will glow yellow and they will charge towards the player and explode. If the player is behind cover, the DR-1 can 'jump' over and stomp the player, downing them, and if followed up by a self-destruct, can be a lethal move. They can also wield the Guardian's heavy weaponry.
Their self-destruct is similar to the Lambent Drudge.
