The Locust Hunter is a class of Grenadier designed with the task of hunting down and killing certain Humans. It was armed with the deadly Torque Bow on its right arm, and equipped with light armor. Designed to be easily spotted, the Hunter was developed to be the showcase for the deadly weapon, but it was eventually given to the Theron Guard.[1]

Deprived of its main design purpose, the Locust Hunter was stripped of its original armor, and given a Gnasher Shotgun and several Frag Grenades, becoming the Grenadier seen in Gears of War.[2] It is said that it was not included in the final game because of conflicts with animations.

MultiplayerEdit

  • Locust Hunters are a playable skin in Gears of War 3 Multiplayer.
  • It's possible that this class was the inspiration for the Swarm Hunter encountered in Gears of War 4, which also uses the Torque Bow.
