Could you please make him slower or something? Before him I could do around 150k, but now I'm having a hard time just getting 50k because he's so fast that I can't just fly around him. ~75-85% of my deaths are by him.

That is the point of the Swarm, and that is why their spawn rate is so low/rare.

I'll bring his speed down slightly. I'm still keeping him faster than the player however.

Rare? More than once I've seen these as the first two enemies in chaotic, and after a few min. without dying I'm fleeing from 5-8 of them. And in normal mode after a short while they spawn in packs of five :(

@Joshyy - thanks. Perhaps also make them a bit more rare you won't get flocked by them.

Yeh, that is rare. In the old engine you'd start off Chaotic with about 5-10 of them. :) They're not that hard, just tricky to corner and kill.

I agree they're ridiculously hard to kill... it's not very enjoyable unfortunately.

I wish I had their dodging reflexes -_- ...

Its all a matter of opinion. I quite enjoy the challenge :)

A tip: They're more interested in dodging your fire than they are in hitting you, use that to your advantage to get them to move away from where you are.
