Spire-Missiles in action

A Spire Missile (or more commonly simply a Spire) is a Chimeran biological weapon designed to infect large numbers of humans with the Chimeran virus. Spire missiles can wipe out entire cities in a matter of minutes, and have become one of the Chimera's most effective and lethal weapons. A Spire missile is fired from a Goliath into human-held areas. After impacting and embedding itself into the ground, the Spire opens up and releases its deadly payload of Crawlers. By Resistance 2Spinners are the main payload of Spires.

Deployed Spires are a common sight throughout the series, showing an area has come under attack; the missiles land with enough force to reduce buildings to rubble.

Appearence

Resistance: Fall of Man

A Spire attack was seen in a cutscene following the "Spires" subsection of the York level of Resistance: Fall of Man after Nathan Hale and the rest of the 1st Ranger Regiment secure the landing zone in the abandoned bus depot.

Resistance 2

Crashed Spires are seen throughout the course of Resistance 2. Most commonly seen are in Orick, California and Twin Falls, Idaho. All Spires where mention to carry Spinners instead of Crawlers as seen in Fall of Man.

Resistance 3

Several crashed and disused Spires can be seen throughout Haven and in the wastelands, which the Wardens are encountered in the latter.

Resistance: Burning Skies

The only Spire attack in gameplay occurs at the end of the mission Staten Island in Resistance: Burning Skies; the player must quickly flee from spreading black clouds which indicate Crawlers, as Spires fall around them. While large numbers of deployed Spires are seen during the game (and are much smaller than in any other Resistance game), no Crawlers or Spinners are ever encountered again, and no Goliaths are seen at any point during gameplay.

Trivia

Resistance: Burning Skies

  • According to Resistance: Burning Skies the section of a Spire between the tip and the pods containing the payload is the "Spire Beacon" and is used to tell Carriers and other Chimera that a Spire attack has occurred so they can follow up on it. Chimeran infantry have never been shown to follow up on Spire strikes before, and the idea seems to have been invented by the writers of Burning Skies to allow the Chimera to be deliberately called to a specific location by Richard Gorrell using one of these beacons.
