|Disco War Machine / Disco WM|
What is it?
The name comes from the flashing colors on that frozen (not moving) machine.
It can be found in the Out of Bounds area of the Underground level, at the Southeast corner of the level somewhat below the surface level. The "disco" effect varies by platform.
See Investigation box below.
Depending on certain circumstances, it may happen that the Companion does not see the WM (or you don't see it).
“ The colors of this WM differs, depending on the way/route before approaching it. „ — zzZZzzenTraveler, before testing
“ .. well, guess what i said counts for the PS4. did two checks on the PS3 now. first attemp ended with a strange shadow layer on the wm, second one with a clean texture and no "effects" at all. „ — zzZZzzenTraveler, after testing
How and where to do it
A possible route and explanation to that place should be added.
It's in the Out of Bounds area of the Underground level, at the Southeast corner of the OOB.
Enter the OOB before you go to the Ambush Room.
Depending on circumstances, the Disco WM may not be there for a player. See Disco WM#Missing Disco WM
Even if the location of the Disco WM is found, it might be hard to see it:
At this place the camera strongly points to the wrong directions. The WM lies below an invisible ground and you have to trial and error to get a view on the WM. This can be seen in the short clip above.
It is not visible from some distances and appears only when the player is rather close. As if thick fog is covering that area below.
Exit to OOB with CB-ing up to the top of the entrance gate or even directly to the top of the wall. See Underground (OOB), Entrance: At the start of the level.
Missing Disco WM
Quotes and information, about when the Disco WM dissapears and is visible to only one player:
"This War Machine (Disco WM) stays in the south-east corner of the map (XYZ 0,0,0) until any of the War Machines triggers are activated by the player, in which case it is placed within the level boundaries (where exactly depends on which area the player are in).
Players reported that Disco WM is sometimes missing, that’s because after it’s being moved from its original spot it will no longer appear in the south-east.
Even if the player restart the level or start a new game. This can cause desynched WM position, in which case one player can see Disco WM in the usual spot, while the other cannot (desync disco WM requires verification).
- Disco WM is in fact two WMs that appear in the Underground, simply “merged” together at the same spot. That’s the cause of texture flickering as two models interfere one with another.
- Disco WM disappears as soon as any WM-related trigger is activated (in a normal play-through, this would be the Ambush Room trigger).

- Paleologos, prompted by Pipimpipim, who asked about missing disco WM.
- Rebi, on discord: "Its pretty magical the last location of the [Disco] wm is not reset when you enter again".
