Dual ice-picks and a flying charge attack make a deadly capable foe.

Terra Trenchers are Corpus enemy units encountered in the Orb Vallis on Venus, wielding a Kreska.pngKreska in each hand to engage the Tenno in close combat.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • Betraying their lumbering appearance Terra Trencher enemies are capable of using their jet pack to quickly jump to their target. Upon landing they will create a large AOE shockwave which also causes a knock-back effect.
  • Additionally, their melee attacks possess an innate stagger effect, which can leave unfortunate Tenno easily perma stun-locked if cornered by two or more Trenchers.
  • The Trencher will use its jetpack to quickly move around the field.

Farming Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Enrichment Labs area of the Orb Vallis is one place to meet them. As this place is also used for toroid farming, meeting them is a great possibility.
  • "Defend The Comm System" side-missions to switch agents to new areas for the United Solaris will have few of them (such as Transit Depot).
    • If the alert level increases during one defense, keeping the level high will help to farm in one place.
    • Farming "Neo Pink" pigment, each Trencher will have a chance to drop the color in 5-packed quantities, and at least one of them will most certainly drop the color.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Their feet have added spikes for greater grip on the snow.
  • Despite being a melee enemy, Disarms, ShootingGallery130xDark.pngShooting Gallery and Mod TT 20px.pngCounter Pulse will affect Trenchers, causing them to switch to a Prova8point2.pngProva or attempt to fix their Kreskas.
