Farmbots, also known as Agribots, are an upcoming enemy in Scrap Mechanic. They will be added with Survival Mode.
Farmbots have been mentioned in various Devblogs on the official website, as well as making an appearance in the debut trailer. Devblog 6 mentions that there will be various types of Farmbots, each with different abilities.
According to the backstory, the Farmbots are robots built to tend the farms on an agricultural planet, the setting of the game. At some point before the player character arrives, something goes wrong with the Farmbots, causing them to attack humans on sight (and take over the radio station, for some reason).
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Farmbots were originally named "Agribots", as seen in earlier devblogs. The name is a portmanteau of "agriculture" and "robot".
- Farmbots appeared with functional AI in the debut trailer and their models are in the Beta files. This is because, like other Survival features, they are present in an incomplete form in a development branch of the game.
