Rustick is a robotic space monster found in space encounters.

They are immobile enemies attached for foreground surfaces, found in groups of two or more, always in even numbers. They do not directly attack the player or even react to the player's presence. Rusticks connect to the next-closest Rustick with a player-damaging energy beam; destroying one Rustick dissipates the beam. But if there is another un-paired Rustick nearby, the surviving Rustick will immediately connect to it with a new beam.

This monster is best countered using a mech vehicle. It can drop electronic components and mech energy when defeated.

They are not capturable using Capture Pods.
