Holographic Camouflage (Ex)

An assassin robot uses advanced sensors in conjunction with a holographic projector to blend in with its surroundings. If the assassin robot remains still for 1 round, it gains a +10 bonus to Stealth checks and is treated as having concealment“>concealment until it moves out of its square; this doesn’t stack with invisibility or similar effects. As a move action, the robot can amplify this camouflage for up to 10 rounds per day, using the duration in 1-round increments. While the camouflage is amplified, the robot is affected as if by the invisibility spell.

Holographic Trick (Ex)

As a full action, an assassin robot can move up to its speed, blurred by holographic camouflage, and then make an attack with a one-handed melee weapon or small arm. After its movement, the robot can attempt a Stealth check; this check is opposed by a Perception check attempted by its target, and if the robot is successful, its target is flat-footed against the attack and takes 5d8 additional damage on a hit.

Nanite Repair (Ex)

An assassin robot’s nanites heal it, restoring a number of Hit Points per hour equal to its CR.

Once per day as a full action, the robot can regain 6d8 Hit Points.

Retractable Weapons (Ex)

When not in use, each of an assassin robot’s weapons is folded inside the robot’s body and hidden from sight. A creature unaware of the robot’s hidden weapons must succeed at a DC 35 Perception check to notice one. An assassin robot can deploy any or all of its weapons as a swift action or as part of making an attack or full attack. Its weapons are mounted, leaving the robot’s hands free, and the robot can’t be disarmed of them. As a swift action, the robot can retract any or all of its weapons.

Target Tracking (Ex)

As a move action, an assassin robot can lock on to one target it can see. The tracked target doesn’t benefit from concealment“>concealment against the robot and can’t succeed at Bluff checks against the robot to create a diversion.

This tracking ends if the tracked target dies or is destroyed, the robot ceases being able to see the target, or the robot ends it as a move action.


Environment any
Organization solitary, pair, or team (3–5)
