Snomp is an enemy most frequently found in Agnisort.

Datalore

Alpha Lore (unlocked by killing Alpha variants)

Immobile environmental assault Unit.

Early models of the Snomp indicates routines for "friendliness", "comfort", and "thermal annihilation" functionality, suggesting a target market comprised mostly of dictators and oligarchs that deem other humans an unnecessary risk. Why the original designers chose to model it after a serpent is unknown, and probably contributed to this Unit's failure in the global marketplace.

Beta Lore (unlocked by killing Beta variants)

Secondary market tests followed, of course.

Corp Marketists sold some to church caretakers to replace their aging gargoyles, which found some limited success among the "fire and brimstone" crowd. The Corp's Toy Division tried to market them as a "modern Furby", but found little overlap between parents who thought this was a good idea and parents who could afford to buy one.

Gamma Lore (unlocked by killing Gamma variants)

Snomps are pretty good at taking a beating and testing precision Contractor movement, so they became a natural fit for the Site Testing team. We quickly augmented the initial offering with the double-spitting Beta and triple-headed Gamma models, and I'm not ashamed to note here that I keep a Gamma as a pet. Cerby is my best friend.
