Salmonid Field Guide

Salmonid Field Guide page detailing the Griller

The following text is quoted from the Salmonid Field Guide.

What Happens
  • Armored vehicles called Grillers spawn one after the other. Grillers lock their sights on to a target and will pursue it relentlessly.
  • Smallfry are known for hitching a ride on the Griller and interfering with its targeting.
How to Get Golden Eggs
  • Attack the weak spot on the back of the Griller to stun it.
  • Stunning Grillers will reveal further weak points. Attacking these weak points is the key to taking down Grillers and getting Golden Eggs.
Advice from Mr. Grizz
  • If the Griller has you in its sights, you're better off running away and letting your friends handle it.
Supplementary Information
  • Operating costs for a single Griller would be enough to deploy 100 regular Salmonid fighters.
