  • FNIX machines are generally associated with negative connotations in their names, while Soviet machines tend to carry a predominantly positive connotation. However, not all names fall strictly into these categories, as some seem neutral in nature.

  • Basically, the Rival names, much like companion names, are created by combining elements from pre-established lists of nouns, proper nouns, and adjectives and combined in a random manner.

  • Certain locations or areas referenced in the Rival names are not explicitly marked on the in-game map, although they are genuine locations within the Östertörn world. For instance, Hammarstoten is a mountain situated on Himfjäll, yet it lacks a detailed description on the map, unlike places such as Rusa Klint.

Curious if you noticed a pattern in the prefix of the rival name? I haven’t been noting them down like you had, but anecdotally I spotted a few usual suspects like Oxen seems to always be a Harvester, Mechanical Unit Enforcer a firebird, Wolf a Hunter etc…

Also, the FNIX bots seem to have a negative subtext, whereas the Soviets a more positive one (e.g. savior, helper etc…), but I haven’t noticed a pattern across the types other than that.


Well, the lore seem to indicate that Soviet machines were initially on Swedish soil to help the Swedes to fight the machine invasion and prevent the machines to invade the Motherland. So positive names seem fitting. While FNIX, who did not wanted to be controlled by the military, abducted and killed many inhabitants of the Swedish islands, so prefixes like “Horror" or "Ransacker” should be how survivors saw them.

The list for me was really only intended to find names that said some thing special about the areas they patrolled, so I started to write them down. For instance “The horror of the Toresta Coast” was not on the in-game map. And since I made an out-game map I like to add those area names to that map, to get an even more complete document of the Swedish islands. :coffee:

I’m gonna start writing mine on paper :confused: sometimes I get repeat names, However, can’t remember if the funny number is the same, & also what’s even more complicated is that EACH region has its own runner names, AND the only way a runner will turn rival is if it kills you, AND, even more complicated is that NOT all runners qualify for the rival upgrade, I have 6 runners rivals, 1 hunter rival, 1 reaper in apegelego region, and it took FOREVER to find 6 runners that qualified for the rival upgrade

Every machine qualifies for becoming a rival, if it kills you. It’s still just a chance that they become personal rivals.

every machine type, yes, (expect ticks) , but not every Tank, Harvesters, Firebird, Hunter in the game qualify, example: Hunters that stand guard in the military base next to klint, they don’t qualify, :confused:, no matter how many times that hunter kills me, And as for Runners & Lynxes, Only some quality IF one kills you, and still not 100% that they will, i tested this out, and i found Runners that walk all over the place might probably quality, and Runners that just stand in place Won’t qualify, thats how I was able to create 6 Runners in aplegigo region, I tried figuring out other regions But :sleeping: so exhausting trying to find the Runners that quality

i tryed getting all 6 Runners rivals in one place with heavy radio noise thing for screenshot :confused: but difficult, got 4 of them though, Jarven A-307, Wolverine B-389, Stridsmaskin 30 A-339, Stridsmaskin 30 A-345


That’s great to have 6 Rival runners. I have two Rival Lynxes, Baba Yaga and General Winter.

I have a question to all players how would like to help. I am looking for Rival names that have a locations that are not officially on the in-game map like for instance “The Horror of Himdalen”, where the Himdalen area/location cannot be found on the in-game map. I already found several, but with more players pitching in I bet that we can find more. Just check your Rivals and if you have one or more, post the name, region and (machine type; tank, lynx, etc.) in the comments.


it must have been bring your daughter & son to work day :rofl: for game devs the day they were creating names for rivals, but dad I wanna help, alright, alright, you can name some of the rivals, Baba Yaga & General Winter, lol lol lol

“General Winter” is probably generated automatically out of some variables, like we can name our companion, “Baba Yaga” is out of a slavic fairytale/mythology… A witch.

Baby Yoda, might be related, lol

I have been searching the internet for rival names, since nobody on the forums and on Facebook, wanted to help. I found a picture that showed a Soviet Lynx which seems to have a negative name, but the picture was cropped showing only the first part of the full name. Lynx ->The Terrible A???

But it seems not to be a positive name or maybe it can be positive-ish =>The Terrible Assassin. :coffee:
