Sith Warriors, described as "an unstoppable force of darkness", are combat specialists of the Sith Empire, and served as the champions of the battlefield, entrusted with the task of destroying the Empire’s enemies and enforcing Sith domination across the galaxy. Trained to rely on the emotions of fear, anger, and hatred to improve their connection to the dark side of the Force, channeling its power through their bodies and purging weakness from themselves.
In contrast to the Sith Inquisitors, Warriors had little patience for careful planning, and wasted no time with such manipulations. Instead, they demanded absolute obedience from their followers, relying on power and intimidation to attain their ends. However, such blunt methods did not reduce them to single-mindedness, and Sith Warriors had been known to go renegade in order to pursue their own agendas.
The combat specialists of the returned Sith Empire, Sith Warriors channel their anger and hatred to purge their body and mind of weakness, and focus on becoming beings of pure and lethal efficiency. Determined to eradicate the Jedi Order and rule the galaxy through fear and intimidation, Warriors have little patience for the calculated and careful planning favored by many of their compatriots, preferring instead to simply crush their foes. They demand absolute loyalty from their followers, and in turn demonstrate such traits towards their own Sith masters, often surprising enemies and allies alike with their self-discipline and strong sense of honor.
Some Sith Warriors have been known to go renegade and pursue their own agenda, though all such Darksiders can be trusted to never be far from the action.

Due to their passionate dedication to their goals, Sith Warriors are natural leaders, inspiring both fear and undying loyalty amongst their allies. While they have little patience for failure, Warriors understand the need for strength in numbers against their foes.
Armor and Armaments
While Sith Warriors relied heavily on the strength of the Force for their power, their approach to combat was very pragmatic, and they had no compunction about heavy armor or cybernetic augmentations. In fact, Warriors often favored such dangerous and experimental technologies, with the goal of imbuing themselves with great physical strength and fortitude.
As far as their armament goes, Sith Warriors typical wielded standard lightsabers. However, in keeping with their pragmatic mindset, their lightsabers often featured more technical, squared-off designs, especially in comparisons to the more esoteric models favored by Sith Inquisitors, or the more rounded Jedi lightsabers. However, as their entire equipage is geared towards forcing opponents onto the defensive, Warriors have been known to favor more unorthodox lightsaber disciplines, such as saberstaves or dual-blades.

In terms of their own combat training, Sith Warriors utilize bold lightsaber combat tactics and sudden bursts of Force powers, designed to force opponents onto the defensive before killing them. Considered unrivaled lightsaber duelists, Warriors utilize combat forms geared towards brute force, hammering their foes into submission with strong, crushing blows. Though their lightsaber is their prime method of attack, Sith Warriors do not neglect their skills in other areas of the Force, using it to paralyze, terrify, and kill. Protected by their heavy armor, Sith Warriors charge into the fray and release their anger and hatred against all who stand against them.

Whereas Juggernauts focus on stamina and brute force, Marauders focus on speed and efficiency. Relying on the Force to intuit how to maximize every attack, Marauders cut down their enemies in the blink of an eye. Gearing themselves towards seeing every weakness in their foes and exploiting it to the maximum, Marauders never hesitate nor falter, and are considered the swiftest bringers of pain and damage in the galaxy.
