Our inward swing is nearly over. No new weapons or gadgets, but we are greeted by the arrival of "Spider" processing robots and their kin:

Spiders usually release a handful of miniature spider bots after they are destroyed. They will yield three or four of them usually. Sometimes these guys can be found in the wild, but usually out of a trap door. They are a little bit weaker than Class 1 Drones, but the can be terribly annoying if you're not paying attention to them.

And as you saw at the beginning of the video, we have this little fucker:

Class 1 Drillers prefer to shoot at you from a distance, but they will follow you if you run away. They are armed with a Vulcan Cannon and love to use it. Because their gun operates the same as yours does, dodging a Driller's fire is very difficult. Always keep on the move when one is attacking you. They are defensively weak, so a single homing missile is the best weapon to use to eliminate them. Concussion missiles also one-shot them.
