Cauldron RHO Override. As you progress through the game, you will probably see a new machine becoming an escort for others. These are Longlegs and they are definitely more challenging than Watchers. One of the most important things you do not want a Longleg to do is call in reinforcements, which it can do with its antennae on its head; destroy this and it can no longer call for help. The Longleg can be fairly agile, although it does have one glaring weakness, its Concussion Sac.

This sac is located on the front of its body and is of a decent size, so it’s not too hard to hit. Hitting this with enough damage will not only cause it to explode, inflicting Tear damage on the surrounding machines and it also disables its sonic scream attack. Besides that, the Longleg typically likes to jump at you to try and kick, as well as another attack where it will leap and hit the ground, sending out some fire around it. The latter is disabled if you destroy its wings, but it’s likely that the Longleg will be dead long before you do.
