From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Gate Technicians were Elite Minotaurs that were seen in the Vex Offensive activity during Season of the Undying, where they attempt to repair a disrupted Gate Network by the hands of an infiltrating Guardian Fireteam while seven to ten Oracles try to expunge the the infiltrators from the network. They later assist Crotheon, Gate Keeper and The Undying Mind at the conclusion of the mission.
Gate Technicians were usually more skittish than most Minotaurs, tending to stay away from combat and poke at the enemy with their Laser Rifle, however they could be identified by their sparkling white glow which allowed the Fireteams to easily find a hiding Gate Technician. If all enemies were destroyed and there still were Oracles, the Vex Technicians would get aggressive and actively chase down players, revealing their location. Once destroyed they dropped a Vex Cranium that was used to destroy Oracles and Invulnerability Shields.
