Tick-sized... Gnomes?


#1

I haven’t seen this anywhere else, so… Here goes. Me and a friend encountered it during a late night session. Scared the crap out of me. Exploring a house in Östervik, we found several Gnomes inside standing with their backs against us. Attempting to pick them up, caused this to happen:

They dropped advanced medkits, 9mm ammo, .50 BMG ammo, regular Tick Pods (we didn’t have the perk), and well… These.

They stopped spawning after a while and were replaced with regular Ticks, so I believe this was some kind of random encounter.

A weapon to surpass Metal Gear…

That is super creepy! :grimacing:


#5

Looks like a new easter egg. :grin:

Any pointers which house it was? (Need to get it for my collection. :star_struck: )


#6

I want now some dalahorse runners :smile:


#7

IF it was this house:

I wonder how the heck you got in, since the front door have no option to open? Looking through the window next to the ladder, I can see a gnome inside, just like on your screenshot.


#8

Ok, now I’m really confused. Returning to the very same house after starting the game up again, the gnome is gone and the door on the front could be opened? :thinking: :thinking: :thinking:

House seen on Xezr’s screen is at 705, 53. Took some running and searching to find it.

No gnometicks in there for me, but i have a theory.
It is possible that gnometicks appear only when it’s night IRL Sweden and perhaps, it should also be night at your game.


#10

Me and a friend were playing, the doors were openable for me but not for him. But I was able to lure the Gnome Ticks out of the house so he could loot them too. After I had put a Field Radio on the balcony though, he could open the door and get in that way.

@Aesyle’s night theory sounds like it’s worth testing.


#11

LOL, that is scarier than the Tank at FOA4 :rofl:


#12

That Gnome-Tick is from a mod named “High class machines”…


#13

I don’t use mods, so that’s a negative.


#14

And your friend hasn’t ever used that mod???
Becuase what you describe about loot is identical to mod description too.


#15

Nope, and it was my session.


#16

Have to explore and find that house, tonight Swedish local time to see if it happens.
Been around the map exploring “closed” houses and areas to see if I can teleport in to them with a radio but never seen a closed one with gnomes.


#17

Allrighty. This modding potential could pull me in the side of mods for this game.

This is creepy, unusual and certainly intriguing :smiley:


#18

i found exact the same thing also in Östervik. was searching some houses and was wondering why the front door was locked. i took the back door and found these gnome there. i got the info i could pick it up but then it transformed in these tick gnomes and screamed at me. but i also was able to loot one of the gnome pods


#19

Hmm, that means that they could exist in more houses than the one I posted above, since on that house there wasn’t a back door. Interesting. Does this mean I have to stay up all night to see if I can get a shot at this :rofl:


#20

as i discovered these ticks they was located in 6 house. in all over house the ticks looks normal


#21

Nice, thank you. So - stay awake all night, or what? :smiley:
