The Machines are a type of enemy ARKS face in the Desert, Tuennsl, and Quarry fields of Lillipa. They are mechanized security constructs, which have fallen influence to the Darkers as other enemies have in Phantasy Star Online 2. All Machines are weak to Bolt without exception.
These Machines were not normally located in the Desert, but rather have climbed up to the surface from the Tunnels beneath the surface and continue to act unpredictably under the Darker influence.
The Machines located here were once intended to be security drones, but the Darker influence eventually grew too strong within them and has since caused them to go berserk; they attack anything and everything that moves, be they ARKS or Darkers. All four Desert Machines also appear in Tunnels.
These Machines are responsible for patrolling and protecting the abandoned mining field known as the Quarry. While most of them are unique, a few of them are modified models of those found in the Tunnels area. Spardan A and Spargun can sometimes appear as well.
