Tech-X, or The Iron Gnaar, is a boss that appears in Serious Sam's Bogus Detour. It is fought along with the PRIME-209, making them a singular boss.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Tech-X is a large mech that resembles a Gnaar, hence its name. Hailing from Mental-Altani's Tech Replacement program, this mech was built for use in highly toxic sanitation situations where a regular Orc force or other machines couldn't be sustained for any extended period of time.

Following a shift in focus, some of these were changed to work in the reverse capacity - instead of containing the ooze, they are commanded to spread it as much as possible, both as a weapon and for a more sinister experimental purpose.

Attacks and stats[edit | edit source]

The Tech-X's main attack is firing several Ooze Spawn from its reversed vacuum suckers. Its second attack is firing a cloud of ooze from the canisters located on its back. These clouds will poison the target if they are near them. After a certain amount of time has passed, it will summon Orc Scientists to help repair it.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

  • The Tech-X is an easier boss to defeat than the PRIME-209, therefore it is recommended that the player focuses on the Tech-X first, then the Prime.
  • Avoid the ooze fired by the Tech-X by dashing or strafing in the opposite direction from where they are fired.
  • Eliminate the Orc Scientists as soon as they start appearing to prevent them from repairing the mechs.
  • The Cannon and XPML21 Rocket Launcher are effective weapons to use against the Tech-X.
