Stingers attack in groups, making it easier to get a drop on the player, but the player can negate this by being on the move constantly. Stingers are dangerous at close quarters, as they can fire their projectiles at a deadly point blank range, their claws deal heavy damage and they can grapple you, causing a QTE event to prompt, if this event is failed, the Stinger will decapitate the player. They can be severely weakened by fire and are vulnerable to heavy assaults individually. When significantly weakened, Stingers will glow red, allowing a finisher to be performed. When executed, Hayden will drive the Glaive into the Stinger's chest. Hayden will then decapitate the creatures with the Glaive.
- A Stinger's head bears resemblance to Hayden's proto-suit's helmet, Excalibur's helmet and Chroma's helmet in Dark Sector's spiritual successor, Warframe.
