  • Flickerbat
Artist: Delta Hexagon
Tallon IV
Phendrana Drifts

Scavenger with optical camouflaging that renders it invisible to the naked eye. Flickerbats are deceptive creatures. The only way to track them reliably is with x-ray imaging. They fly ceaselessly, hunting on insects and other small insects that float on the air currents. Flickerbats tend to fly in cyclical hunting patterns, using primitive sonar to navigate.

You will encounter these apparitions in Phendrana Drifts. Due to their ability to fully cloak themselves, they are only able to be spotted using the X-Ray Visor. Until you receive the item, it is best to avoid them completely. Otherwise, take them down with a well-placed shot of your Wave Beam.
