Sleek, fast, and small, these aliens are comparable to Protegits and are considered the same threat as them.
Interceptors are Reaper aliens that can be comparable to Protegits. They are small, fast, and deadly in swarms. The speed of an Interceptor can be comparable to that of a Protegit. They fire weak red lasers that only do 300-400 damage per volley.
The Interceptor gives extremely high Uridium for damage and health. For easy comparison, to kill 7 interceptors you get 140 Uridium or to kill one Kristallon you get 128 Uridium, meaning for the same health and less damage you get 12 extra Uridium.
For inexperienced pilots, this my seem like a good way to get easy Uridium. But if you are in a credit ship or a Leonov that can deal less than 1,500 damage, do not try to hunt for them because if you encounter a Saboteur away from the gate, you will most likely die.
