Henchmen were A.I. players that spawned at The Shark, The Grotto, The Rig, The Yacht, The Agency, The Fortilla, The Authority and Catty Corner however as of Chapter 2: Season 4, Doom Henchmen spawned at Doom's Domain; Stark Robots spawned at Stark Industries and Quinjet Patrol Sites.; and Ghostly Ghost Henchmen spawned at The Ruins.

Skills and Behavior

All henchmen have a weapon, ranging from Heavy Assault Rifles to Suppressed Pistols (the Heavy weapons are used by SHADOW Henchmen and Suppressed weapons are used by GHOST Henchmen). Some will even have Miniguns or Suppressed Sniper Rifles

Henchmen start off with 100 Heath and 50-100 shields. When you knock one down, you'll be able to initiate a Shakedown, which gives you a Scanner that locates and displays enemies with an arrow marker, security devices with an eye marker, chests with a chest marker, and bosses with a crown marker in your vicinity. Bosses act like henchmen, but they have the location-specific mythic weapon and noticeably more shields/health.

Shaking Down a GHOST Henchman

Henchmen can revive other Henchmen that have been knocked down, this will take 10 seconds just like a player reviving another player (The Henchmen that was revived will have 30 HP and zero shield).

You can disguise yourself in a Disguise Booth to avoid being detected, but if you bump into another Henchman or hit a shot on a player or Henchmen, your disguise will dissipate. Taking damage will also cause your disguise to be destroyed, so be careful not to get stuck in the Storm or take fall damage. Being in a Disguise can allow you to open Scan Doors and Henchmen Chests, but you can carry a knocked Henchman to one of these and scan them to open it as well.
