Chinooks are Salmonids that appear during the Mothership event. They are the only Salmonid that drops Golden Eggs during this occasion. Instead of dropping three Golden Eggs, they will only drop one.

Appearance

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, glowing red when they are about to open, but can be destroyed before doing so. If attacked, they drop one Golden Egg. Because of this, it is debatable if they count as Boss Salmonids.

Tips

  • While the Chinook is prepared to drop an enemy crate, it quickly takes off, so make sure to splat them quickly before they get away.

Trivia

  • 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.
