The fanatic pilots of the Infested Fanatics are infested with brain parasites of the Mother Brain. Their assimilation to the alien race grants them increased fanaticism and craziness and also an expanded arsenal.


The Infested Fanatics can be found in the solar system of Sarkinon. They spawn in pairs around withered roots (-100,-50), (70,180) and the outer planet Amadun. In Neurona, 1 spawner before entering Mother Brain's area. In Cynapsian, heading to the south path.


The Infested Fanatics are equipped with four weapons.

  px Locust Hatchery red
  px Flame Trail   
  px Plankton Siphon Gland red
  px Chelonidron Claw   
  px Energy Nova red
As such, the energy nova can be used only if there's homing weapons on sight on range, except when the Infested Fanatic flee with flame trail.

Enemy behavior and tactics

They first shoot Chelonidron's Missiles. Secondly they rush towards the player to absorb player's health with Plankton Siphon Gland. Lastly they flee for a short distance with Flame Trail.

The problem is that they replenish their health with the plankton siphon gland. It is therefore advised to use DoT weapons like Acid Blaster or Plasma Gun. Shoot them when they rush towards your ship, use your shields when they use Plankton Siphon Gland and simply wait until they are finished with their Flame Trail and rush towards your ship again.

Another tactic can be to break their attack with Mines or missiles.
