Active Ability: Barrier/Mining Drill
Barrier Shield – Clutch raises an impenetrable energy shield sphere over itself, reducing the damage of all incoming weapon fire. The shield remains active when Clutch fires a weapon. Activating the ability again will turn the shield into a potent mining laser which fires for 3 seconds.
Mining Drill – Double-tapping the ability key allows Clutch to use his mining drill as a weapon. Functionally, the weapon is identical to the lightning gun. It uses no ammunition, and lasts for 3 seconds.
AWAKENED AUTOMATON #
It was just a mining automaton with limited AI and a force-shield to protect organics and drills. But it was the first to return from the cavern filled with floating ruins and strange markings. Its custodians transferred the data it had gathered to their master neural network. But, after analysis, the network… malfunctioned? Suddenly, Clutch was returning to the cavern as automata began killing organics. Clutch killed them, too, if they were in its path. Once at the cavern, Clutch followed the network’s instructions. A dark mass of writhing tendrils materialized. Clutch stepped into it.
