Dark Bat Sniper
From Sonic Retro
|Dark Bat Sniper
|Game: Sonic Unleashed
|Affiliation: Dark Gaia
|Points: 20 Dark Gaia Force (PS2/Wii version)
These enemies are similar to the Dark Bat, except they shoot balls of energy and are colored red with cyan markings. There is a 15-second delay between shots in the 360/PS3 verison, but that delay is far shorter in the Wii/PS2 version, lasting 3 seconds. The Dark Bat Sniper can sometimes be placed over bottomless pits along with Dark Bat's to provide a small sense of urgency to not get attacked while trying to navigate across.
|Even harmless Dark Bats can grow wild after absorbing too much of Dark Gaia's sinster energy.
These mutant bats fire energy bullets from their tails.
