Individual FG-1000 units are capable of charging and firing a slow-moving bolt of energy at targets, but pairs of the robots can generate a Wave Beam barrier between them to cut off narrow choke points. The machines are not particularly robust, and can be destroyed with a few shots of any weapon. They appear in or near tactically important areas of the BOTTLE SHIP such as the outer corridors of the Desert Refinery, the gravity chambers leading to Sector Zero, and the Bioweapon Research Center, and are often encountered near another robot model with which they share many design elements, the FG II-Graham.
They will attack Samus Aran on sight, either because they were originally programmed to defend the BOTTLE SHIP against outsiders by the ringleaders, or because MB had taken control of them for use against the Federation. It is unknown if the FG-1000 or similar robots are used in any other Galactic Federation facilities, as none are ever seen outside of the BOTTLE SHIP.
In the Exam Center, several FG-1000 robots can be seen about the facility on the floor, deactivated, with their 'wings' folded in. It is likely that these robots were eliminated by James Pierce, as he was already inside the building before being found.
Nintendo Official Guidebook for Metroid Other MEdit
"FGs are floating, gun-type machines. The FG II-Graham has a stronger beam. Attack when their forward area opens and the gun is visible."
- If Samus stands extremely close to an FG-1000 robot (within a few inches of the device), it will become "confused", and will repeatedly fire projectiles harmlessly over her shoulder.
- Strangely, the Wave Beam FG-1000 robots possess an energy shield that makes it immune to Wave Beam shots (although a Charge Beam shot will freeze its cannon, it will not be destroyed) and Missiles, although the combatant ones lack the shield.
