Known colloquially as the 'drill sergeant', the Augur is fast-grown into its enhancements. As with all Ghouls, no regard is given to the proper development of its higher functions.

Cantilevered leg augments propel the unit toward the fray at speed, while over- and undermounted extendable drill carriages magnify both reach and penetrating power.

The Ghoul Auger is a Grineer Ghoul armed with drills that allow it to quickly dig underground and ambush their foe. Attached to these weapons are fuel canisters, doubling as a flamethrower. As with all Ghouls, on death they will release a cloud that inflicts Damage/Cold DamageDmgColdSmall64.png Cold and Damage/Toxin DamageDmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Avoid perching yourself too far away or they will use flamethrowers, which can cause severe damage to lower level frames.
  • When they dig, try to keep track of where they are and where they will resurface.

Whether through aberrant cognition or sheer brutality one specimen always moves to the front of each pack. It is from this individual that the other units take their lead.
