Cyclone Stalkers are named for their ability to spin rapidly while moving towards the target, dealing very heavy damage and deflecting incoming projectiles. Although they do grow spikes on their tails they do not use them for ranged attacks. Instead, they spit out tri-pointed rotating projectile which deals arguably the highest amount of damage of any standard stalker's spikes. On True Vault Hunter Mode, they become elementally charged with shock. Oddly, they do not become resistant to shock damage.
