        Finally Kamikaze unit on cliffs like the wiki states. Tried probably 10 other suggestions and that was the only one that worked. Darn you DLC!

            Can't find Enhanced Medium Flyer Kamikaze x4 anywhere, stuck on a 99% mobs intel. I searched in different chapters, rebooted a few times in different locations and it's so annoying. Help me please with location of it. Platform: PC, steam; DLC incl.

              Just like the others said. Medium Flyer: Gunner x2, Kamikaze x2 Enhanced can be found on the grass field by the "City Near Factory" Access Point. Reloading is faster as you just need to turn around too.

                Found a medium flyer kamikaze unit at the very beginning of chapter 14-01. A2 awakes in the desert: run towards the bunker door and directly next to the broken stairs (there is a treasure underneath) in front of the apologetic machine there is one.
