The '''Marked Mountain Tile''' is a special variant of either a [[Mountain Tile]] or an [[Ice Tile]] which rarely appears during [[Missions]].
The certain mountain or ice tile DOES spawn damaged at the start of the mission, so if you see an already damaged tile when you enter a new match, take a very close look at the tile to see if it is the tile you're looking for. Note that the glow is not always as obvious as the one seen above, however it should always be in the middle of the mountain.

== Description ==
Upon breaking the marked mountain tile, a ''strange object'' will drop from it, move your mech on to the object and it will broadcast a signal. Once you end your turn, the FTL jump drive sound (from subset games's ''FTL: Faster than Light'') will play and a ''strange pod'' will fall from the sky just like a time pod. Pick up the pod or protect it until the end of the match and you will be able to open it like any other time pod, gaining one of the three secret pilots.

The undamaged tile looks exactly the same as its normal counterpart, while the damaged tile has a faint, yellow glow originating from inside it. This special tile variant may spawn already damaged at the start of a mission.
The pod also looks like a broken section of the Federation cruiser from ''Faster than Light''.

The Marked Mountain Tile is a special variant of either a Mountain Tile or an Ice Tile which rarely appears during Missions.

Description

The undamaged tile looks exactly the same as its normal counterpart, while the damaged tile has a faint, yellow glow originating from inside it. This special tile variant may spawn already damaged at the start of a mission.

Destroying the tile will reveal a "strange object" hidden inside it; upon being picked up it will broadcast a signal. After the end of that turn, a "strange pod" will fall from the sky, similarly to a Time Pod. Protecting or rescuing the Pod will unlock one of three special Pilots and grant the Distant Friends achievement.

Notes

  • Keep in mind that the "strange object" must be picked up by a Mech, simply protecting it until the end of the battle won't summon the Pod.

Trivia

  • The special pilots are a reference to Subset Games's earlier title, FTL: Faster than Light.
    • The sound that plays during the signal broadcast is the same as the FTL jump drive.
    • The pod resembles a broken section of the Federation cruiser from Faster than Light.
