Mecha and Mercenaries
Description: A swarm of Eciton class chassis that have been heavily modified for increased networking potential and lethality.
Manufacturer: Original design by Terran R&D, stolen after less than a year of tests and employed by the Aztlan group as security on the Charon facility
Model Number: Variant(s) of the Eciton #314 model.
Swarming locusts “Thirty meter drone sweep”: Drones sent out in a close sweep, the swarm devours anything in their path, and acquires targeting data.
Fire Hawk “Long range semi-independent drone pack” : Several drones modified for optimised targeting and laser output are launched at a single target, where they latch on and attempt to disrupt systems. Mostly harmless after the first strike unless ignored.
Grasping Claws “Rending pattern attack”: The core module orders an all out attack, and drones begin attempts to breach containment and impair movement by cutting hydraulics and viral attacks on the target’s controls.
Scattered Form “Diffusion attack”: The Core unit rapidly converts itself into drones, the drones then spread out and attack anything in the immediate area. Due to the distributed nature of the swarm, damage is reduced to the swarm overall.
Fog of Insects “Scorched earth pattern dispersal”: The swarm flows out in a radial pattern, reducing everything in it’s path to smoking chunks of inert matter.
Shard Swarm “Relocation pattern dispersal”: Drones scatter, distracting nearby opponents and gathering targeting data, the main body of the swarm reforms elsewhere.
Skittering Sneak “Infiltration mode”: One drone sneaks across the battlefield. The others are built by nanomachines inside the drone. Or something like that.
Flowing Swarm “Relocation dispersal attack”: Swarm flows out into an area, attacks everything in it, and then condenses elsewhere.
Centered flurry of blows “Opponent relocation attack”: Enemy Mech is lifted by the combined effort of the swarm and moved to a new, more opportune, location.
Ruthless Killer: Upgrades to analysis protocols allow individual drones to identify and attack weak points in the movement systems, allowing for immobilization of enemies.
World Serpent’s Grasp: Further upgrades to analysis protocols allow drone attacks to completely destabilize opponents, causing rapid face-to-ground contact.
Ritual Caster: #227 can make the drones that compose “him” work in tandem in order to accomplish certain tasks, this takes longer than most combat abilities.
