Shifters are an enemy unit fought during the game of Conquest featured in The Void Stares Back. Unlike other units, it does not walk to get to places, but rather teleports directly there, although this only affects things visually. They possess much greater movement stat than any of the standard units under the control of the player, which allows them to teleport pretty far. Compared to a scout, they have a movement stat of 10 compared to the scout's 6, and double the damage and health stats. However, they also cost twice as much. Two appear during the battle, initially at the back of enemy's formation alongside the torchers.
