Logbook entry

This member of the Beetle family has adapted to life in the subzero temperatures in the Phendrana Drifts, growing a thick ice shell over its entire body. The ice is extremely resilient, providing the Ice Beetle with extra protection and augmented digging abilities.


  • A scan in Research Lab Hydra reveals that an infestation of Ice Beetles occurred throughout the Glacier One facility that was 95% exterminated. It is unknown if the number reached 100% throughout Prime.
  • Sometimes, the Ice Beetle performs an extremely dramatic death, trying to crawl forward for a last time, then dropping and fading away. It particularly does this when set on fire by a single Plasma Beam shot.
