Brute Raiders are the basic fighting infantry unit of the Homo Inhumanum. They excel at no particular task but they can adequately handle any task in the field of battle, from objective capturing to tank hunting. They work especially well with the War Buggy (which they can ride on) and the [[Brute Warlord]]. Although their combat skills and weapons are mediocre, when targeting [[spent]] units they gain a significant attack advantage, bringing them on par with elite units in offense.

One of the most common, and arguably dangerous, types of Homo Inhumanum is the one classified as the Brute Raider. Brute Raiders are armed with salvaged assault rifles, improvised crude firearms and the odd bazooka here and there. They are clad with crude armour plates stichted together with chains, wire and literally anything they can get their hands on.

Brute Raider Mob-01

Raiders organise in small individual bands and mostly seem to fight for their own immediate gains, whether that is the access to an area with lots of loot or the sheer satisfaction of mindless carnage. At the same time they share all the physical prowess and resiliency of the common Brute which makes them an especially tough opponent.

Brute Raider mobs are antagonistic between them and, lacking an obvious enemy, will turn on each other. However it is interesting that the Brutes show almost a sportsmanlike attitude when fighting amongst themselves as if they adhere to some kind of underlying code of ethics. This code of ethics all but disappears when they fight Humans, turning into a wanton urge to destroy anything that is unlike them.
