Never tried editing a wiki so i'll refrain from trying but, these enemies can also drop Sturdy sockets.
Do some know where to find the long range enhanced one ?
You can farm these left (or back into the factory's underground) from the Factory: Furnace transporter. You'll find them on the walls in the 2D gameplay section.
From the Factory: Hangar access point, you'll also find 2 or 3 of these in the first round building (past conveyor belt with press machines). Easy Sturdy Sockets if you have max drop rate.
Where on earth do you find these on chapter select? Either I can't leave my mission to go to the factory or the elevator is red.
Do they ever spawn in route A before the story quest in the factory
