Chinooks are Salmonids that appear during the Mothership event. They are the only Salmonid that drops Golden Eggs during this occasion and each one drops one Golden Egg. It is the only Lesser Salmonid that can drop a Golden Egg, aside from the Snatcher.

Description

Chinooks are similar in appearance to Chum. They wear metal propeller headlamp helmets that allow them to fly, making them similar to an Octocopter in that regard. They carry large crates from the Mothership that resemble white styrofoam coolers, with a cyan glow under the lid, and do not follow the Mothership when it goes to the egg basket.

Chinooks do not attack. The crates they drop spawn Lesser Salmonids. The crates glow red when they are about to open, and eventually explode. They can be destroyed before doing so.

The crates the Chinook carries deal damage when touched mid-air or when they explode.

After Chinooks drop an enemy crate, they quickly take off.

Trivia

  • Relative to its HP (50), the Chinook provides more Power Eggs than any other Salmonid, at 18.

Etymology

  • The Chinook's name is a reference to the species of salmon of the same name. The name is also, along with its propeller helmet and role of crate transport, a reference to the Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter, a transport helicopter used to carry heavy loads.
