When attacked, these will sound an alarm to summon allies. They attack with Tek Lasers and Schillers.
The Satellite, also known as the Telstar, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI. It is found in a monster-in-a-box in the Imperial Camp. It is a dangerous enemy, but the rewards for fighting it are well worth it. It is an alarm device built by the Gestahlian Empire using Magitek.
It attacks with Scintillation, which inflicts Blind on both Sabin and Shadow. It can also use Missile to take away 1/4 of a character's max HP and give them Sap. It calls in two Soldiers after 25 seconds, three 55 seconds later, and four Soldiers 120 seconds later. It also counters any Blitz with Mega Berserk, which puts Sabin in Berserk status. Every twelve turns, it uses Dischord.
A recommended strategy is to have Sabin use his physical attack and to have Shadow Throw Shurikens. The Satellite drops Green Berets, the most powerful head armor in the game up to this point. The Satellite appears on the Veldt, making it possible to stock up on the item early.
