Carabus are a type of Grineer Sentinel. They share the same sound effects as Ospreys and exhibit similar behavior.

When deployed by Artificers they are armed with an GrnHeatGun.png Atomos particle beam and may attempt a Kamikaze attack similar to an Oxium Osprey. They have a chance to drop Oxium when killed, possibly depending on their behavior and weapon load-out when summoned.

When used by The Grustrag Three they are armed with DESentinelLaserRifle.png Laser Rifles and are invulnerable to all damage, following the Grustrag members around like Sentinels. A Grustrag's Carabus will disappear along with them upon death.

When summoned by Executioner Nok, the Deth Carabus will attempt to close in to a target and fire a continuous Mod TT 20px.png Vaporize beam. The beam deals 1% of the target's health as damage per second and are primarily used to draw fire away from Nok. However, they can kill unwary, injured players even if Nok himself is killed.
