Description[edit | edit source]
The Carrier is a sentient parasitic growth that has taken on a submarine as a shell. The submarine is old and abandoned, with limbs resembling that of a Fractal Guardian, and the entire lower back portion of the vehicle has been removed. A red substance adorns the sides, either rust or dried blood.
In-game[edit | edit source]
When encountered ingame, it is incredibly dangerous, and will take multiple hits from a railgun to be killed. Its head can destroy the hull of a submarine in a single hit, meaning that it must be killed quickly if you want to survive. Despite the uniquity of its appearance, its AI is similar to that of the Moloch's, and therefore similar precautions should be taken.
Carriers are solitary, and will only appear on their own.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The mission briefing of "Salvaging a Derelict" and the following mission complete message imply that the Carrier is actually a growth-like form of the Veronaceps Calyx, or a similar organism resulting from chemical mixtures.
- The submarine shell's appearance and size are almost identical to that of The Nibbler, implying that the lost trading vessel was a Nibbler.
- The Carrier's Attack 1 audio, "alarm1.ogg", sounds very similar to (and is named after) an alarm. This suggests some of the inhabited ship's systems are still online.
