The "pyscho-nerd hacker" and former Hades Division member can now be recruited by all players as long as they own at least one campaign.
What Schneider lacks in brawn he makes up for in brains. He developed the home-made SCHN31D3r drone at age 14 and can use it in battle to lure enemies into a deadly cross-fire or, as the Antagonist, plant it near the objective to dissuade the Raiders from getting too close.
You can relive his harrowing defeat at the hands of Team PTC below.

Warner Bros. and TT Games' latest adventure ditches the heroes for the first ever villain focussed LEGO title.
Player created characters are central to the game’s story, which is being penned in collaboration with DC:
“The original story in LEGO DC Super-Villains flips the DC universe upside down as players embark on an unforgettable adventure starring memorable villains set across notable DC locations,” said Ames Kirshen, Vice President, Interactive & Animation, DC Entertainment.
“DC’s roster of iconic Super-Villains is unmatched and fans will love teaming up with The Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor and a host of others to save Earth from a greater evil.”
Characters can continue to be upgraded throughout the campaign with new abilities and powers, and it looks like the game will also feature drop-in drop-out multiplayer for on the fly co-op when taking on boss fights.
LEGO DC Super-Villains is out 19 October on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Yesterday, Bethesda got us all excited by posting a Fallout-related gif on social media. We now know that it was to build hype for the announcement of Fallout 76.
Bethesda finally put us out of our misery by releasing a teaser trailer for Fallout 76.
The date seen on the Pip-Boy in the trailer, 27 October 2102, seems to suggest the game might be a prequel, as other entries in the Fallout series all take place much later.
The music played over the trailer - Take Me Home, Country Roads - could also suggest a Virginia setting for the game.
According to Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, Fallout 76 could feature some sort of online functionality.
Recently, Bethesda's Pete Hines teased that this could be the team's biggest E3 showcase to date, so it's definitely one to watch.

Fractured Lands is a vehicle-based Battle Royale title from former Battlefield and Call of Duty devs
The “drive-to-survive” deathmatch title blends FPS and vehicle-based combat in a Battle Royale setting.
As the trailer shows, players are able to “beat down, gun down and run down” enemy combatants with either their vehicle or a firearm. Vehicle upgrades look like they’ll include improved armour and abilities, as well as more deadly weapons.
“Fractured Lands is an experience that epitomizes our passion for this genre but also exemplifies both our experience in developing some of the best shooters in the world and our craving for something innovative, intense and gritty,” said Paul Ohanian, Chief Executive Officer, Unbroken Studios.
“We’ve got so much on the horizon in terms of new content and features, including other last one standing modes, but most of all we’re excited to have gamers join the beta and directly impact our development.”
The beta mentioned by Ohanian takes place next month on the weekends of 8 June, 22 June and 29 June. You can sign up for the chance to participate here.
Fractured Lands will be available via Steam Early Access later this summer.

Last week Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was presented to the world, but yesterday was all about Battlefield V's return to World War 2-era combat.
On to the reveal proper: we know that the single player War Stories mode, introduced in Battlefield 1, will feature, as will multiplayer Operations, now named Grand Operations. The former puts players into the boots of a single character, aiming to portray a more personal side of the war as they experience key moments from that character's own unique perspective, whilst the latter sees two teams face off against one another over the course of multiple maps and modes.
Not much was said about Combined Arms, except it's a four-player co-op mode with randomly generated missions.
Aside from the usual load of guns and tanks with which to decimate the enemy, you can also make a difference in a supporting role. The new Fortifications mechanic allows players to use the toolbox to implement defensive strategies, such as repairing buildings and setting up machine gun nests to push back attackers.
Another new addition to gameplay is The Company, your own collection of soldiers, weapons and vehicles. You'll earn customisation options through playing and the developers made a point of noting that there'll be no lootboxes.
Of course, you can expect DLC, but the Premium Pass has been scrapped and all future maps and modes will be made available to the entire player base at no additional cost. The first batch of fresh content is scheduled to drop in November and focuses on the fall of Europe.
If you'd like to watch the reveal in full, we've got you covered. Those uninterested in a lengthy countdown timer may want to skip ahead to the 55 minute mark.
Battlefield V releases 19 October, or three days earlier for those who pre-order the Deluxe Edition. The Play First Trial goes live on 11 October for any Xbox or PC players with a respective EA or Origin Access subscription.
In the meantime, EA and DICE are giving players the opportunity to snag some free DLC. For a limited time, you can download and keep Battlefield 1's In the Name of the Tsar and Battlefield 4's Final Stand. Head on over to the official site for more details.
Which game do you think had the better reveal, Battlefield V or Black Ops 4? Let us know below or over in the forums.
