The Lambent Brumak is the result of a normal Brumak coming into direct contact with Imulsion or Imulsion Vapours, and becoming heavily mutated. It's mutation and mutation results are far more different than other Lambent Locust. As most Lambent Locust would just turn yellow and explosive when they become infected, a Lambent Brumak would also grow several stories tall, with its head splitting open with a second one coming out of it and with multiple, huge tendrils coming out of its body. It was seen once towards the end of the Siege of Jacinto when Marcus Fenix's and Dominic Santiago's hijacked Brumak turned after direct contact in the Jacinto sinkhole. It served as the final boss in Gears of War 2.
Only one Lambent Brumak has been seen. It has been found they are exceptionally hard to kill, even with the Hammer of Dawn, often taking 3-5 or more strikes to bring it down.
As discussed by Baird and Marcus, the Lambent Brumak would explode upon death, very similar to the Lambent Wretches. Marcus decided to use this to the humans' advantage as the original Lightmass Bomb that was intended to sink Jacinto was lost when the Lambent Brumak struck the King Raven that was carrying it. The Lambent Brumak was used as an alternative bomb, having the same eventual effect as the bomb, sinking Jacinto which floods The Hollows, taking most of the Locust Horde along with it.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- The Lambent Brumak was the final boss of Gears of War 2.
- Before the scene when the brumak goes lambent, if you step in a puddle of imulsion, the beast will sway and roar, so don't attempt it.
