Freeriders form the backbone of almost any Resistance recon patrol and utilise extremely fast bikes to zip around battlefields and explore behind enemy lines. These vehicles are a wide variety of pre-war civilian models, often with a strong aesthetic element common to consumer products of the period. As there are far more discarded bikes than there are people to ride them, the supply is plentiful and individual riders are permitted to use whichever machines they choose. Normally, they pick the most expensive, fast and exotic ones they can lay their hands on, modifying them with additional armour and bolt on machineguns. Freerider bands usually attract the youngest and most reckless of Resistance fighters. A certain sense of invincibility, a death wish or sheer insanity is definitely required for those that take to the battlefield. When riding across open ground, they take advantage of their speed and agility to dodge incoming fire, sometimes closing within touching distance of the enemy to slap limpet mines onto tanks, causing devastation disproportionate to their tiny size.
