The absurd cluckensteins are 8'-tall mountains of fanged, feathered fury.  Crisscrossed with scars and sutures, their misshapen bodies are comprised of compressed poultry remnants given unholy life by deranged processing-plant AIs.  Certain avianoids often use them as guards.

Cluckensteins attack with battering fists, and if both strike successfully in the same round, the target is crushed for an additional 4d6 damage.  The beaked brutes are mighty enough to ignore damage from conventional firearms, and they barrel through walls, doors, and blockades without impediment.

Cluckensteins can operate vehicles and heavy equipment.  They are also capable of halting, gravelly speech, but usually only bellow threats like, "CLUCK SMASH!!!"

All artifacts found in a cluckenstein's rancid nest are in Condition 2 or less [p. 42 of the Mutant Future Core Rules].
