Orbital mech cluster targeter

Orbital mech cluster targeter

An ancient military targeting device. It signals an orbital platform to drop a mechanoid combat cluster at the targeted point. The cluster may include any mixture of mechanoids and mech defense structures.
Though they may have once had some allegiance to the ancient army that created this unit, any mechs dropped now will indiscriminately attack any human they see - including the one that summoned them.
The unit only contains one usage code, so it can only be used once.

The Orbital mech cluster targeter is a powerful single-use utility artifact.

It requires manual targeting, and has a 3 second activation time. Once activated, a mechanoid cluster will spawn in the targeted area. The mechanoids within will be hostile to everyone except other mechanoids, they'll even be hostile to the user. They are in every way a mech cluster you can summon, with all the help and hindrance that can bring. Use with caution and remember it does not help against other mechanoids.

It has a targeting range of 45 tiles, and requires a line of sight from the user to the target i.e. it cannot target through walls.

Like all other utility items, it can be equipped with a weapon.
