A heavily armored variant of the Mactera Shooter, the Brundle is just as deadly while also being very resistant to damage with its vulnerable abdomen covered by thick armor. Even more aggressive than its fragile counterpart the Brundle is not afraid to get up close and personal.
— Miner's Manual Description

The Mactera Brundle is a rare hostile creature encountered on Hoxxes IV. It is a part of the Mactera family and closely related to the Mactera Spawn with the ability to fly. It sports 4 sharp, pink wings and dark scale plating all around its body. The Brundle can be found flying around idly in caves, but will most commonly spawn during a swarm to combat the Dwarves.

Due to its dark armor, it can be almost immediately identified as a tougher, more damage absorbing enemy. While its standard attack is shared with the Mactera Spawn, it does not die nearly as easily. Its main role is to aggressively fire at Dwarves and to tank incoming damage for their allies. Its armor can be broken however, and by destroying the double abdomen heavy plates it will be vulnerable to a x3 damage modifier in that area.

Brundles's mouth is not armored and can be shot without damage reduction.

Elite Variant[]

The Elite Mactera Brundle is the elite version of the regular Mactera Brundle. Like all Elite enemies, the Elite Mactera Brundle looks almost identical to its regular counterparts; being only distinguished by its aura of distinct vertical red lines with the words 'elite' above their healthbar when scanned and looked at.

Attacks[]

In addition to all the benefits that all Elite enemies receive, Elite Mactera Brundles have one additional enhancement:

  • Their Armor is greatly increased. The Heavy Armor plates that cover their Weakpoint have their Armor Health increased from 80 to 250.

Trivia[]

  • The creature's name is a reference to the anti-villain protagonist Dr. Seth Brundle from the "The Fly" movies who later turns into the hideous human-fly hybrid called Brundlefly. This is backed up by the dwarves having voicelines saying "Brundlefly down!" when killing one.
  • This creature was added to the game in Update 33: New Frontiers.
