|“||The BET-C autonomous weapons platform is a remnant of the first attempts to tame Hoxxes. Alas, it was quickly discovered that a local species of parasite, Xynarch Charge-suckers, loved nothing better than to corrupt the programming of the BET-C units by gorging themselves on the copper wiring and electric charge within. Any BET-C yet left on Hoxxes should be treated with extreme caution - these mechs were designed to take on the worst Hoxxes has to offer, and should be treated as such. Still, if a mining team should find themselves able to dislodge the parasites, they just might gain a new temporary ally.||„|

The BET-C or Breakpoint Explosives Transport - Combat-Specification (nicknamed Betsy) is a Deep Rock Galactic owned quadrupedal robot capable of walking on any surface, previously serving as a mobile depository, defensive turret, and grenade launcher.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
BET-C can rarely be found during missions. Before its corruption by a pair of Xynarch Charge-Sucker machine parasites, BET-C presumably acted as a depository for an unknown previous team of dwarves. Unlike the M.U.L.E., BET-C is equipped with a large turret and a grenade launcher, and is suited with a Shield Generator, which it uses to hunker down when in danger.
Infected[edit | edit source]
As BET-C has poor component security, a Xynarch Charge-Sucker is able to corrupt it and control it against its fellow dwarves. There's a low chance that dwarves will randomly encounter a sleeping infected BET-C unit during missions. While an Infected BET-C is in a sleep state, it'll make a distinctive pulsating sound audible from vast distances. Once approached or shot, BET-C will immediately awaken and turn hostile against the dwarves.
An Infected BET-C has three different assault phases which it repeats in this order:
- Aim and shoot in short bursts at any nearby players.
- Slam into the ground, activate a dome shield and dish out eight bombs around itself.
- Re-position while firing a single grenade at any nearby players.
Once the Xynarch Charge-Suckers are removed off an infected BET-C, it will collapse to the ground and require a reboot in a similar manner to repairing a Mini-M.U.L.E, which takes around 8 seconds to do. After rebooting the BET-C, it will follow its new found friends and fire at enemies. BET-C is completely invincible to all attacks, and boasts the same impressive firepower it uses against the dwarves, which now won't do any damage against the team.
The chances of encountering a BET-C are 3% for Hazard 1 and 6% for Hazard 2 and up.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- A corrupted M.U.L.E. was originally teased on Twitter back in September, 2018. The model shown was very different from the one that exists today.
