The BET-C autonomous weapons platform is a remnant of the first attempts to tame Hoxxes. Alas, it was quickly discovered that a local species of parasite, Xynarch Charge-suckers, loved nothing better than to corrupt the programming of the BET-C units by gorging themselves on the copper wiring and electric charge within. Any BET-C yet left on Hoxxes should be treated with extreme caution - these mechs were designed to take on the worst Hoxxes has to offer, and should be treated as such. Still, if a mining team should find themselves able to dislodge the parasites, they just might gain a new temporary ally.

The BET-C (Breakpoint Explosives Transport - Combat-Specification), nicknamed "Betsy", is a Deep Rock Galactic-owned quadrupedal robot capable of walking on any surface, previously serving as a mobile defensive turret/grenade launcher.


Gameplay[]

BET-C can rarely be found during missions, with a 5% chance to appear. Xynarch Charge-Suckers will always spawn in pairs of two.

Before its corruption by a pair of Xynarch Charge-Sucker machine parasites, BET-C presumably acted as a depository/security escort for an unknown previous team of dwarves. Unlike the M.U.L.E., BET-C is equipped with a large turret and a grenade launcher for offense and a Shield Generator to protect itself when in danger.

Infected[]

BET-C's idle pulsating sound.

As the BET-C has poor component security, Xynarch Charge-Suckers are able to access its circuitry to consume copper and electricity, and as a result they can corrupt and control it against the dwarves.

Infected BET-C units can randomly be encountered in missions, initially in a dormant state. While in this state, the BET-C makes a distinctive pulsating sound audible from vast distances. Once approached or shot, the BET-C immediately awakens and turns hostile against the dwarves.

An infected BET-C has three attacks:

  • Aiming and firing short bursts of bullets at any nearby dwarves.
  • Temporarily ceasing movement to activate a shield generator and launch 8 bombs in a small ring around itself.
  • Re-positioning while firing a single grenade at any nearby dwarves.

The BET-C itself is completely invincible to all attacks, even in its pacified state. However, like the M.U.L.E., any electricity-based damage will temporarily slow it down.

To pacify the BET-C, the team must destroy both Charge-Suckers attached to it. Each Charge-Sucker has its own health bar and must be individually destroyed. While the Charge-Suckers cannot be frozen solid, they will take increased damage if enough cold is applied (this works similarly with Q'ronar type bugs).

Once the Charge-Suckers are removed, the BET-C short circuits, collapses and requires a reboot, similar to repairing a Mini-M.U.L.E. Rebooting the BET-C takes around 8 seconds, after which it follows its newfound friends and will turn its hostility towards enemies.

A repaired BET-C boasts the same impressive firepower it used against the dwarves. However, it loses its Bomb Shower ability.
