XR-949 Salvagebots are part of the pre-XT-002 Deconstructor trash. They deploy a Salvagebot Sawblade, which is mob in its own right in the shape of a floating saw blade, which flies between raid members causing significant amounts of whirlwind damage to players in the area, and stacking a damage-increasing debuff onto people hit.
Spread out swiftly and watch for sawblades. Move away from them if they appear on you. Salvagebots are relatively dangerous. Take them out after Parts Recovery Technicians, but before XD-175 Compactobots and XB-488 Disposalbots.
