The Sand Worm (unofficial name) is an enemy in Hard Corps: Uprising.

Description[]

These robotic worms lay dormant inside the quicksand of the Desert region. Acting as ant pits, they swallow whole any unsuspecting victim to trek through them overhead. They cannot move on their own and must wait for prey to pass by. Although they appear to be working for the Commonwealth Empire, they care little of their own troops, simply following orders to consume anyone nearby. These worms can swallow a foot soldier whole, then the worm reveals a hidden gun and shoots dead ahead. If a hero is swallowed, the character receives massive damage and is soon spit back out. Sand Worms are only mildly durable and can be taken out with concentrated weapons fire. When hit, the worm will immediately emerge from its hiding spot.

During the boss fight against the Lotus Wyrm, the boss is capable of producing Sand Worms to assist it in battle. These appear to be linked to the boss, as destroying the Lotus Worm also destroys its released Sand Worms.
