  • The Comet perfectly describes the appearance of this dangerous anomaly.
  • Close approach is discouraged with the notable exception of the appearance in the Sarcophagus which seems to be benign.
  • The Comet is frequently seen (if at all) together with clusters of other anomalies.


  • Whereas the parent anomaly for all three 'fire-based' artifacts (Droplets, Fireball and Crystal was the Burner or Comet in the Base Game; in the Lost Alpha the parent anomaly for the Fireball is mentioned cryptically as 'Scorcher'.
  • The Burner anomalies are excellent sources of Droplets and Green Parasites but not of Fireballs or Crystals.
  • The Dark Valley spawn point only produces the Fireball out of the fire-based artifacts, implying that Comet = Scorcher.
