Kenshi Wiki

Lost Drones are members of No Faction. They can be found wandering Bast, Dreg, Flats Lagoon, Heng, Okran's Gulf, Okran's Pride, Okran's Valley, Skimsands, Stenn Desert, The Great Desert, and The Hook.

Since these characters are factionless hivers, they were likely separated or exiled from the Western Hive. They are not to be confused with the Lost Hiver drones.

Given their abundance in both HN and UC areas, it's likely that these type of Hivers are the source for majority of the Hiver slaves in Rebirth for HN and the Empire Peasants of UC.

If they get inside or too close of The Holy Nation towns, the leading Gate Sentinel will mark that "Darkened are not welcomed in the sacred domain!" and arrest them to later send them to Rebirth.

They wear no armour and have weapons manufactured by Unknown.

The Statistics here are taken from FCS. Players should be aware that non-player characters also level up while fighting.

Lost Drones can join the player faction if they encounter a encounter a Hive player character in a Player Outpost. Once recruited, they will have the "Player HIVER Ronin" Dialogue Package.

It also seems like they have unique dialogue with beep specifically.
