| Bipedal Hunter Killer|
The Raptor is a bipedal weapon platform, mounted on two oversized servo enhanced legs with large triple claw pads. citation needed] The triple claw footpads cannot only be used in close combat and for removing cover from Tech-Com units, but also provides the machine with superior traction on almost any surface. [
Its only ranged weapon is a plasma rifle that is fixed onto the body.
In order to achieve a high volume of units, Skynet had to retard the electronic self autonomous capabilities of the Raptor. Skynet imparted a feral, almost animal intelligence into the Raptor, resulting in an obedient soldier with the intelligence of a rabid guard dog and the single minded dedication of a machine. 
The Raptor operates much in the manner of a crazed animal, smelling the kill. The Raptor squats dormant amid the rubble, sensors passive, until a target is acquired. The unit then catapults itself out of its cover gaining speed, engaging what targets it acquired according to threat level and capability. Raptor are recorded by Scout units as actually tearing apart Tech-Com units rather than using energy ranged attacks; crushing Tech-Com units with the claw feet, ripping and tearing other units apart, or using its own bipedal body to smash units against debris and building walls, crushing them.
