Feros Geth Hopper

The Geth Hopper is a subtype of the geth that the quarians don't recognize, hinting that the geth are 'evolving'. A Hopper's body is made of a springy synthetic substance that resembles organic muscle tissue. This can be compressed and then released, allowing the Hopper to jump enormous distances (hence the name given to them by Alliance soldiers). It has also tiny hooks on its hands and feet, meaning it can climb on walls and ceilings.

Hoppers are described as 'cyberwarfare platforms', meaning they have the ability to wreak havoc on hardsuit computers and weapons with Sabotage, Overload, or Damping. The Hopper's main attack appears to be a powerful laser that comes out of its eye. Like the Geth Sniper they also use a radar jammer. Hoppers tend to ambush in packs, using their rapid movement to cause disarray.

All Hoppers are lightweight and lightly armored, making them vulnerable to gunfire. Physics-based biotic attacks, especially Throw, will inflict heavy damage against Hoppers. The problem is getting them to hold still long enough for a clear shot. Happily, they are usually encountered indoors, and a Hopper usually leaps back and forth between two positions across a room, allowing you to hit them on their return jump. Lift works nicely to hold them in midair, especially if you're using a sniper rifle.

Some Hoppers use a powerful sniper laser resembling an Assassination ability to attack your shields, so be wary of any red beams. Apart from this they will focus on distracting you and using tech talents.

Trivia

  • Hoppers made their debut in the X06 demo footage. Ashley Williams yelled a warning upon seeing the Hopper outside the mine on Caleston (later incorporated into Therum).
  • After Saren Arterius is killed either by commiting suicide or a fight to the death with Shepard, Sovereign reanimates the turian and strips him of his organic flesh, revealing his synthetic "upgrades". In this state, Saren strongly resembles a Geth Hopper, rapidly leaping around the area and firing a laser not unlike that of a Hopper from his head.
  • While the Geth Hopper is not included in Mass Effect 2, one of the filenames used in Tali'Zorah nar Rayya's recruitment mission includes "HopperCanyon", suggesting that Geth Hoppers may have been present in Mass Effect 2 at one point during development. Additionally, a model closely resembling the Hopper is included in one of the files used in Legion's loyalty mission.
