The Drudge are Grineer non-combatants tasked with constructing and maintaining the various spacecraft used by the Grineer. They can be found performing their jobs throughout the Grineer Shipyard tileset, and some Grineer Asteroid tiles, and are generally harmless unless provoked.

- As non-combatants, Drudge units typically loiter around or work on their tasks, and will ignore players in the vicinity. They will not attack players, nor will they raise alarms. Drudge units only become hostile if players touch or attack them, whereupon they will attempt to attack the player in melee with the tools they have. Even when hostile, Drudge units generally do not pose a threat to a player due to their weak attacks.
- While Drudge units appear as hostiles in enemy detection abilities like Enemy Radar, they do not count as targets in Exterminate missions.
- If spawned in the Simulacrum with enemies from different factions, Drudges will be seen as neutral NPCs by the others, and consequentially ignored even if the Drudges proceed to attack the other enemies.
