Description of The Giant Robot
There are three Giant Robots patrolling the map. They are names are Thor, Oden, and Freya. According to the names written on the inside of their heads. Each walks a specific path at random intervals.
The Giant Robots are 1000 foot tall patrol robots that were left behind after the zombie infection. They have a single yellow eye that resembles Cyclops from the X-men, and a Templar Cross on their chest.
The operators inside are all dead, so the robots are walking their programmed patrol route.
Entering The Giant Robots
You can enter the robots through a trap door in their foot. However, the trap door is not always on the same foot. In order to determine the correct foot you will have to be at an angle where you can see the bottom of there feet while they are walking. The foot with the four lights on the bottom is the foot that has the trap door.
To enter the foot you must first shoot the trap door. Any gun will work, but automatic long range weapons are ideal. Shotguns will require you to wait until the robot is close, which might not give you time to escape if you are unable to shoot the foot. If this is preformed properly, the trap door will open. Stand under the foot in one of its footprints. When the foot comes down you will enter it instead of being crushed. You do not have to be standing directly under the trap door, but just under the foot.
The Giant Robots' Patterns
Each Giant Robot walks a different section of the map, but all walk from North to South. One of the three starts their patrol every 2 minutes. It is very rarely the same giant paroling twice in a row. They step in large mud footprints that are visible on the map. The prints are equipped with red lights, which will flash when it is about to be used by a giant. Your character will normally talk also, saying something like 'It is unwise to stay in the robots path'.
Thor patrols the East side of the map. He has two playable footprints that the players can be crushed in, or can use to get inside the robot. The first one is at Generator Station 3. It is the same footprint that has the Perk-a-Cola Machine, Speed Cola. The second footprint is by Generator Station 2. It is on top of the Tank Station.
Freya patrols in the West. She also has two playable footprints. They are each on one side of the church. Her left foot lands in the area between the Church and the Excavation Site, and the right foot lands between the Church and Generator Station 6.
Oden walks a patrol right down the center of the map. He has a total of eight playable footprints. His patrol starts above Generator Station 5. He steps to the right and left of this generator. He then steps to the North of the Excavation Site with both feet, and then to the South of the Excavation Site. His final two footsteps land on each side of Generator Station 4.
Items Found in The Giant Robot
Each Giant Has Two Items Inside of It:
- A Radio that Plays a Maxis Voice Clip
- A fragment of the Staff of Wind
Other Useful Information

- You will use the Giant Robots to break the seal for the 'Lost Little Girl' Easter Egg.
- The Giant Robot shoots at the G-Strike Beacon, causing a lot of destruction.
