From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
The Splicer Skiff is a SIVA-modified Fallen Skiff utilized by the Devil Splicers. It serves the same functions as a conventional Skiff, but its cannons inflict Solar damage and are much faster to fire.
The skiff will arrive and hover close to the ground, allowing it's crew to drop down (mirroring the regular fallen Skiff). As it is depositing troops, the skiff will fire red balls of energy and Shock grenades at the player and/or any other enemy factions present. When the skiff's quarry have been delivered, it will fly into the air, before dissapearing a few seconds later.
