The Imposter Sheepsquatch is a robot found in Appalachia.

Background

This modified Assaultron unit was developed by Calvin van Lowe in his attempt to hunt down the fabled Sheepsquatch cryptid. It was designated "Mary's Little Lamb" by the Bysshe Company who sponsored van Lowe's development of it.[1]

Originally intended by the Garrahan Mining Company as a counter to Hornwright Industrial Mining Company Strikebreaker robots, the project was canned and handed off to Allan Garrahan,[2] who handed off the project to one of Bysshe's fixers, codenamed Big Bad Wolf.[3]

The project team consisted of Calvin (codenamed Blacksheep) as the main developer, Bo-Peep as the handler, and Big Bad Wolf as the fixer.[4] After initiating a mating protocol[5] and maiming Calvin van Lowe, the Imposter Sheepsquatch escaped containment. Big Bad Wolf attempted to contain the rogue Assaultron at the pylon ambush site and failed, but left an automated message for anyone to finish where he left off.[6]

Another variant of the Imposter Sheepsquatch, dubbed the "Sheepsquatch Imposterling," was created from a corruption of Calvin's old Assaultron protocols, its software parameters commanding it to seek out and kill all known Bysshe Company employees; it lurks within the lower areas of the Harpers Ferry tunnel.[7]

Characteristics

The Imposter Sheepsquatch is invisible and invulnerable until the three pylons nearby are activated. Activating a pylon places a damaging effect on the player character who activated it and notifies all event participants of who has activated which pylon if they have the event tracked. The Imposter Sheepsquatch becomes visible and loses its invulnerability as long as all three pylons are all active. If any of the pylons become deactivated through the death of the player character who activated it, the imposter Sheepsquatch becomes invisible and invulnerable again. The pylon damage will not finish off downed players, and they still contribute to disabling the imposter's shields.

  • The eye laser fired by the Imposter Sheepsquatch will ignite the ground, creating a mild fire hazard.
  • The Imposter Sheepsquatch is completely immune to limb damage and crippling effects.
  • The Imposter Sheepsquatch is bugged to have 100% armor penetration on all of its attacks.
