Known colloquially as the 'drill sergeant', the Augur is fast-grown into its enhancements. As with all Ghouls, no regard is given to the proper development of its higher functions.

Cantilevered leg augments propel the unit toward the gray at speed, while over- and undermounted extendable drill carriages magniify[sic] both reach and penetrating power.

The Ghoul Auger uses drill arms to melee its enemies, and sometimes uses the fuel canisters attached to said drills to blast a stream of fire at targets farther from its initial melee range. Often will dive underground in an attempt to cut off or ambush his enemies, usually using his flamethrower attachments to catch them by surprise.

 Behavior Edit

Tips Edit

  • Avoid perching yourself too far away or they will use flamethrowers, which can cause severe damage to lower level frames.
  • When they dig, try to keep track of where they are and where they will resurface.

Whether through aberrant cognition or sheer brutality one specimen always moves to the front of each pack. It is from this individual that the other units take their lead.
