Typical whirligig as seen in the field.
  • Gravitational
  • Spatial distortion
    Activated by contact
Lost Alpha
  • Widespread

The anomaly snatches its victims up in the air and spins them at a breakneck speed. The exact nature of the Whirligig remains unknown. The anomaly can be recognized by a light whirlwind of dust above and by body fragments scattered in the vicinity. Victims caught on its outer rim - far enough from the maximum effect zone at the center - can escape the Whirligig with relatively minor injuries. Forms three types of artifacts: Stone Blood, Mean chunk and Soul.

  • Inflicts gravitational shock.


  • The listing of the artifact Meat Chunk at the end of the description is misspelled "Mean chunk" in the game code.
