Critters[edit | edit source]

Can't be sold on every trader like the other resources. Critters and drones can be sold to Maelnir Trading Ship and the Menkmack at New New New Whatever Menkmack. Critters can be shot or stunned. Some creatures will charge-run at lander dealing few damage points.

Drones[edit | edit source]

Drones (also known as Unknown entities) shoot laser beams when alerted to lander presence. Damage dealt by laser is usually fatal to lander, when no lander armor is equipped. You can easily destroy drones when shooting at them from behind horizon.
