Medium Flyer Information

"A medium-sized machine lifeform outfitted with four flight devices. Armed with guns atop the devices and wire cutters on its sides, its capablle of taking on enemies in both close- and long-range combat. The wires on the bottom of the flight devices allow them to transport other machine lifeforms when necessary.

Variations with self-destruct units on top of their flight devices have also been observed. Said self-destruct units detach from their airborne hosts before detonation, allowing them to rain down destruction from above."


Medium Flyer Locations

  • Desert Medium Flyer: Kamikaze Unit can be found on Chapter 10-03 Route B. Transport to Desert: Oil Field and hug the right side when leaving the Oil Field until you find a cliff with enemies. Just climb up and check if any spawned, it does not have a 100% spawnrate.(Same spawn as enhanced version on Route C)
  • On Chapter 12-02, "Enhanced Medium Flyer: Gunner x2, Kamikaze x2" can be found as a very rare spawn--in place of the regular non-enhanced "Medium Flyer" that usually spawns--in the grass field immediately in front of the "City Ruins: Near Factory" access point.

        Medium Flyer (2x Gun, 2x Kamikaze) can spawn near a rock with a hacking chest, slightly north from the end of the cliff. The chest contains Project Gestalt Report 8. Confirmed on Chapter 06_02 as 9S.

          Here's a little tip to make your save/load grind semi easier for the Enhanced Kamikaze / Enhanced Gunner 2x Kamikaze 2x - (Assuming you already know their spawn location) Load into chapter 12-2, go to the cliffs and see if they're there. If they're not, make your way to the Oil Field access point to reload chapter 12-2. This saves a lot of time because one, you don't need to save. When you load in through chapter select it automatically resets the area. Two, you load in to chapter 12-2 standing a lot closer to their spawn location already than if you were to load in from a save file at the Oil Field access point.

              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.
