SPECIAL ABILITIES

Automatic Laser (Ex)

An anacite predator drone’s automatic laser can fire in automatic mode each round at up to five targets. The weapon has a range increment of 60 feet.

Electric Ray (Ex)

An anacite predator drone’s electric ray has a range increment of 60 feet.

Shortwave (Ex)

An anacite can communicate wirelessly. This acts as telepathy, but only with other creatures with this ability or constructs with the technological subtype.

Sunlight Dependency (Ex)

Anacites are solar-powered constructs, although they can function at reduced capacity away from light. In areas of darkness, they gain the sickened condition.

Target Lock (Ex)

As a move action, an anacite predator drone can lock on to a target within 60 feet that it can see. The anacite can have only one locked target at a time. Against the anacite’s attacks, a locked target gains no benefit from concealment less than total concealment, and a locked target reduces its bonus to AC due to cover by 2.

ECOLOGY

Environment any
Organization solitary, pair, or squadron (3–6)

Anacites have varied general designs, but some have evolved for specialized tasks. Two such specialists are the ambassador and the predator drone.

An anacite predator drone resembles a rhinoceros beetle made of silvery metal with a reddish shell that opens to reveal enormous wings. The drone’s weapons are part of its body, leaving its wings and appendages free. Countless drones police megaplexes. Others serve as soldiers for anacites that have greater authority, fighting in places such as the Midnight Trenches.
