The Aparoid Roller is a giant Aparoid found in several levels.
The Aparoid Roller is a giant, white spherical Aparoid. It is very heavily armored, and it has at least eight legs when its shell is closed. when its shell is closed, it will fire torpedoes, which, like the somewhat similar Aparoid Missile Launchers, are interceptable. If you get close enough, it shell will open to reveal a large tread and a vulnerable head. In Bronze difficulty, it takes 3 hits to destroy it. At any other level, it takes five hits to kill. the head has at least six short, stubby legs to charge at you. The charge is very damaging, therefore using a Landmaster is advisable. Destroying certain Aparoid Rollers will drop a Gatling Gun as a reward.
These are more numerous than in any other level. At least five or six are surrounding the Climate control center, another is on a nearby platform guarding the location of an S-Flag, and two more are locaed near one of the Shield Generators.
- There are smaller versions of these Aparoids, that look and perform similar attacks, found in sheltered areas.
