The Pincetron is an organic enemy in CrossWorlds. They can be encountered in areas of Maroon Valley as part of the previously PC-exclusive quest Best in the West.


This more disciplined variant of the Pinceron has been equipped with a light, back-carried artillery launcher. Because the pincers and stinger weren't already scary enough, apparently.

Appearance[ | ]

The Pincetron is a red creature that bears resemblance to a scorpion. They sport a rounded head, 2 claws and 6 legs. Pincetrons are also equipped with futuristic visors and a large black cannon with neon blue highlights where its tail should be.

Combat[ | ]

In its first attack, it attempts to hit the player twice. It swipes one of its pincers towards the player, then causes an explosion right in front of itself. Its other attack is charging its cannon for a few seconds before shooting a bomb, which leaves it vulnerable to breaking. It always flashes red before attacking and its explosive attacks can cause Burn.

Strategies[ | ]

Pincetrons are capable of doing much more damage than their predecessors. Wait for them to attack first so you don’t get caught by surprise by their pincers, and try to focus on the ones that are preparing to shoot, since they are the most dangerous but also the most vulnerable.
