Etymology

In Greek Mythology, cyclopes (the plural form of cyclops) are are race of giants, having but a single round eye located in their forehead. They were said to be children of other mythological beings, such as the Gods, nymphs and even the Earth itself. Skilled blacksmiths, the cyclopes sometimes made weapons for the Gods, most famous of these being the thunderbolts of Zeus.

  [Source]

The Cyclops is a bipedal exoskeleton used by the UNSC Marine Corps during the early years of the Human-Covenant War. While it was originally intended for construction and other noncombat purposes, it was repurposed for combat against the Covenant for deconstruction proficiency on Covenant building structures.[1] The modification for combat included additional armor plating around the operator and joints, and specialized equipment for demolishing enemy fortifications. The Cyclops is available only if Sgt. John Forge is the leader.

History

After the MJOLNIR Mark Is were found to be impossible to control, they were decommissioned with the majority of them being thrown into the titanium mines on Reach. Bitten by the failure of Project ORION, and suspicious of ONI, the Marine Corps under the UNSC Marine Special Operations division started their own power suit research division. They needed a form of shock deployment troop to fight the continuing rebel uprisings throughout the Outer Colonies and sometimes in harsh environments such as the Eridanus Asteroid Belt where Robert Watts was holed up after the rebels fled to the asteroid belt following Operation: TREBUCHET in 2513.

These power suits, often called “coffins” by those who had to wear them, initially did well in field tests, but severe power problems, and the issues with the propulsion systems led to them being mothballed. Most of the power suits were assigned to support vessels where they were deployed alongside the base pods to construct the buildings once they were on the ground. The Cyclopes were used extensively during 2531, in the combat engagements on Harvest, Arcadia and a Forerunner Shield World. The power problem was eventually solved, directly as a side effect of Project ORION, and the suits were updated, but the deployment of Spartan-III soldiers in 2536 took them out of operation completely and they were mostly scrapped alongside the Mark Is on Reach.[2]

Development

A trio of Cyclopes in an early build of Halo Wars.

Originally, Ensemble had designed the unit as a canon-accurate MJOLNIR Mark I suit, but deemed it too similar to the Spartans to easily distinguish. The Cyclops was therefore rebuilt from the ground-up as a unique unit, both larger and bulkier than the MJOLNIR Mark IV the Spartans wear. During at least one point in development the Cyclops lacked the reflective visor, instead having only a bare crash cage over the wearer.[1]

Initially, fan reaction to the unit was poor, regarding it as an unrealistic "mech" addition. Over time, acceptance of the unit has not changed, and the fanbase is still polarized as to the legitimacy of the Cyclops.[3]

The Halo Wars Cyclops is based on the Cyclops unit from Ensemble Studios game Age of Mythology, an actual Cyclops, which was similarly a large unit that dealt heavy melee damage.[4] Even their alternate attacks are similar - when its bar has charged, the AoM Cyclops will lift a nearby infantry unit and hurl it at the enemy forces for additional damage. Pressing Y on the Halo Wars Cyclops will allow it to tear a vehicle apart, and hurl the chunks at enemy forces in a similar manner.[5]

Combat

In combat, the Cyclops deals heavy melee damage, using its powerful arms, once used to carry heavy machinery and equipment, to deal devastating blows against enemy units and structures. It also possesses the ability to tear apart a destroyed vehicle and throw the pieces further at any other unit, including air units which they have no other offensive option on. If upgraded, the Cyclops can repair nearby vehicles and buildings.[1][6] It costs 125 resource units and a tech level of one. Takes up one population cap. Has two upgrades:

  • "Repair Kit", which allows the Cyclops to repair buildings and mechanized units. 400 resource units and tech level of two.
  • "High-Torque Joint" which improves its movement speed 500 resource units and tech level of three.[7].

Although the Cyclops has heavy melee damage when faced against multiple infantry squads it is weak, so it is advised that you back up the Cyclops with Warthogs and/or Marines. Furthermore it is completely useless against air units, like Banshees. Also note that the Cyclops does heal buildings and vehicles, but it cannot heal infantry and airborne units. It also plays a big role in level 12 of Halo Wars because they are the only units that can repair the power core of the UNSC Spirit of Fire.

Trivia

The back of the Cyclops exoskeleton.
  • To date, the Cyclops is, along with the Gremlin, the only UNSC ground vehicle named after a mythological creature, unlike other vehicles which are usually named after real animals and creatures.
  • When used against infantry, the Cyclops will do "finishing moves" against weakened squads, such as breaking their necks or throwing them.
  • The Cyclops design changed drastically during the game's development: its helmet was once similar to that of the MJOLNIR EVA and SPI armor and its body was bulkier and shorter.
  • A Cyclops can repair Covenant vehicles in addition to UNSC, as long as they are on the same team.
  • It is a well equipped multipurpose vehicle, repairing buildings and units similar to an Engineer and destroying buildings comparable to the Locust.
  • The driver of the Cyclops sound as though he/she has an Australian accent.
  • If you look closely in the back of the Cyclops you can spot a glitch where you can see right through it.
  • The Cyclops was a one-eyed giant in Greek Mythology.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

A cyclops (plural cyclopes) is a monster found on the top floor of the Warriors' Guild and some other places. In the Warriors' Guild, many players fight them in hopes of getting a defender, as they are the only monsters that drop them. Cyclopes come in two varieties in the guild: Level 56 and Level 76. They have low defence and a reasonably high number of hitpoints, making them a very good training monster. However, they are immune to ranged and magic. The level 56 cyclopes are the lowest level monster to drop level 3 Clue scrolls, although, they do not drop them often, the cyclops -2- in the Warriors Guild is the best for clue scrolls due to it being low leveled and having a higher drop rate than most. Many players bring runes for High Level Alchemy because cyclopes, especially the level 76s, drop Steel, Black, Mithril, and some Adamant items.

A Ring of Wealth does not appear to increase the chance of getting a defender, which is a rare drop. It is possible for players to spend over 1500 tokens without a defender dropped.

Contents

Location

The two main variations of cyclopes may be found in the Warriors' Guild. To get inside the Warriors' Guild, a player's Attack and Strength levels must add up to a sum of 130 or greater. In order to enter the Cyclops area, located on the second floor, a player must gain at least 100 Warriors' Guild Tokens. When inside the room, 10 tokens are used up every minute, and the player must leave when the tokens run out.

A single cyclops is caged in the Ardougne Zoo, but it does not drop defenders.

Level 81 cyclopes inhabit the God Wars Dungeon, but these too do not drop defenders.

Trivia

  • In Grim Tales, Sylas informs the player that he has a prized possession, the skull of a mutant cyclops with two eyes instead of one. The player suggests that he has a skull of a regular two-eyed giant, but he rejects this idea.
  • Many people believe "cyclops" means "one eye", but the word is actually derived from the Greek for "round eye". In the Greek legend, the Cyclops' single eye was indeed round. Greek is also the origin for the English plural of "cyclops": "cyclopes" [sigh-CLOE-peez], not "cyclopses". When you talk to Kamfreena outside the cyclopes' room in the Warriors' Guild, she will correct you when you say "cyclopses".
  • If you receive a slayer task to kill 'Hill Giants', it is possible to kill cyclopes as a substitute.
  • Harrallak Menarous addresses the cyclopes as "beasts from the east" if you ask how good he is with a sword. Since Cyclopes are not found in any natural habit(other than God Wars Dungeon, where they were sent to fight for Bandos) on Runescape, it is possible they are from the "Eastern Lands."
  • The cyclopes in the God Wars Dungeon have horns growing down on their back of their heads.

The Cyclops, often abbreviated to simply "'Clops", was a smuggling vessel that was active during the time of the Galactic Civil War.

The ship was equipped with two shuttles, and was captained by Jerg, whose first mate was Marie Peeno. In 1 BBY, the Cyclops transported several hundred Rebel Alliance sympathizers from Sulon to start a new life in a new colony on Ruusan.
