Disambiguous This article is about the enemy in Mass Effect 3: Retaliation. For information about Seeker Swarms in general, see Seeker Swarm. For the multiplayer power, see Seeker Swarm (power).

The Seeker Swarm is a Collector unit encountered in Mass Effect 3. Collector Captains deploy Swarms to disable enemy abilities.

Capabilities Edit


Seeker Swarms move quickly towards a target. When they explode, victims in the small radius are unable to use any powers for an extended period of time. The explosion they create can also damage you. They also decrease accuracy, making it more difficult to hit enemies with certain weapons.


Seeker Swarms move fast and can be hard to target due to their shape. They only have a small amount of health, but it's much higher than their size would suggest.

Tactics Edit

  • Area of affect powers such as Shockwave, Electric Slash, and Inferno Grenade are one of the quickest and easiest ways to eliminate a Seeker Swarm.
  • Singularity can be used to immobilize and eventually destroy a Seeker Swarm.
  • As a swarm is about to explode, it will momentarily stop and vibrate even more frantically. Running away while it is immobile will cause the swarm to dissipate while keeping power use intact.
