From Sonic Retro
|Game: Sonic Unleashed
|Affiliation: Eggman Empire
|Hits to defeat: 1
A flashy version of the standard Aero-Cannon, these machines are (like their mundane bretheren) just large, floating guns. Prefering to retreat rather than reel around in recoil-shock after firing, destroying these robots nets Sonic a hefty points bonus.
|Eggman built these pure gold gunners on a whim one day.
They run away after popping out for a quick attack-- beat them before they can for a nice treat!
