New Upgrade Modules!
This new module will make every hostile predator think twice about attacking your Cyclops

Cyclops Auto Defense System

  • Whenever a hostile target gets in range to attack the Cyclops, the Auto Defense System will automatically zaps the aggressor
  • and anything else unlucky enough to be close to the Cyclops when it fires
  • For the Auto Defense System to function, a Seamoth with a Perimeter Defense upgrade module must be docked in the Cyclops
  • This system works by supercharging and focusing the Seamoth's Perimeter Defense System
  • Where can I craft this? This module can be found in the Cyclops Fabricator.
  • What do I need to unlock this? You'll have it available as soon as you unlock the Seamoth Perimeter Defense System.
  • Alert! Because the Auto Defense System is engaged by the Cyclops threat detector, it will only target large creatures that are attacking the Cyclops itself.
  • This mod will not protect you if you are outside of the Cyclops.

Cyclops Auto Parasite Remover

  • Whenever a lava leech attaches to the Cyclops to start sucking away are your energy, the module will automatically pulse the Cyclops shield to detach them.
  • For the Auto Parasite Remove to function, a Cyclops Shield module must be installed in the Cyclops.
  • A shield pulse from the auto parasite remover only consumes 10% of the power that a manual pulse of the shield would consume.
  • Where can I craft this? This module can be found in the Cyclops Fabricator.
  • What do I need to unlock this? You'll have them available as soon as you unlock the Cyclops Shield Upgrade Module.

Cyclops Auto Defense System Mk2
  • An improved Auto-Defense module that does not require a docked Seamoth to function
  • Has a slightly reduced cooldown time compared to the original
  • You can use this in addition to the original Auto Defense System, giving you twice the zapping power!
  • Where can I craft this? This module can be found in the Modification Station.
