"A mountainous pyramid of chrome hovers about you. The volume around it appears furrowed somehow, and sound only comes through in waves; it's as though space and time themselves were crumpled away before the thing's very presence."

A shining, metal behemoth of the Deathlands. Nearly impossible to kill, it is suggested that you run as soon as one of these enters your vision or when you see multiple explosions going off on the map you're currently on. Pyramid also warns of its presence by emitting animated "waves" every few seconds (real time, not turns).

Chrome Pyramids are equipped with a Swarm Rack, a heavy weapon that seems to function like a cross between a shotgun and a missile launcher. They shoot 10 missiles at once in a shotgun pattern. Chrome Pyramids have the ability to teleport, create force bubbles, regenerate and fabricate 20 HE Missiles by spending 100 Hp.

Reward Edit

The point of killing a chrome pyramid other than bragging rights and an Achievement is that it provides at least 2 to 3 metacrystal bits which most wouldn't otherwise be able to obtain easily.

A Chrome Pyramid's Swarm Rack can drop due to dismemberment, but as it weighs 1500 lbs., using it is challenging, even more so considering how fast it consumes missiles.

150 of of Small Spheres of Negative Weight would be needed. The only way to get that many is to disassemble the blast cannons acquired by disarming Leering Stalkers or by disassembling other swarm racks. This method is very inefficient and a waste of time, so instead:

  • Apply weight-reducing Tinker mods like the willowy and the slender mods, both mod cuts it up to 187
  • Invest in a Heavy Weapon skill, Strapping Shoulders that cuts away the weight of the rack to half
  • You can have a weight 23 swarm rack but only if you modified it after the purchase of the skill, this is due to bug that sequentially reduce its weight based on the already reduced weight by the skill instead of its usual weight.
