An unknown animal wandered into Thump Dump last night. The town's guards attempted to contain the creature, but were unable to do so. They succeeded in driving it out of the area, but not before it caused significant damage to the surrounding buildings. A local scientist managed to obtain a SIN scan of the animal before it passed out of range. Read on for more information.
Name: Shield Crawler
Researcher’s Observations: The Shield Crawler is a large crab-like animal, covered in a chitinous shell that is far stronger than any man-made polymer we have developed. The shell's composition allows it to deflect both kinetic and energy projectiles, often back in the direction of those who fired them. The Shield Crawler's two front legs have large interlocking shell plates that it can draw in to cover its vulnerable head. When in this defensive position, its only real weak spot is its back, below the protective shell. Though the Shield Crawler does not appear to be overly aggressive, it will charge anything that strays close enough to be perceived as a threat. Personnel should not attempt to engage the Shield Crawler alone, as flanking maneuvers are required to subdue it.
