Mech drop beacon are Mechanoid cluster buildings added by the Royalty DLC. When the cluster is activated they will call for a small number of mechanoid reinforcements to drop-pod down close by.

Even if insta-killed, with a weapon such as with frag grenades, they will still call reinforcements.

A mech drop beacon will summon between 350 and 450 points of scythers, lancers, centipedes or pikemen. Scythers and lancers cost 150 points, pikemen 110 points, and centipedes 400. The mechanoids will arrive within a 10 to 30 radius ring around the beacon.

Trivia

Like all mech cluster buildings, they not only have a Flammability of 0%, but also take no damage from attacks with the Flame damage type. This is in contrast to, for example, a stone wall which will not be ignited by molotov cocktails but will take the 10 flame damage from the initial attack.

The Ideology DLC allows destroyed variants, the Ancient mech drop beacon, to spawn as remnants of the ancient history of the planet.
