Attack with a drill. Press a button repeatedly for powered up attacks. — Basic attack description, Sonic Forces manual
The Drill Wispon is an object that appears in Sonic Forces. It is a Wispon that is themed after the Yellow Wisp. The Drill Wispon can be used by Avatar, allowing the character to penetrate through Badniks, as well as excavate through the ground and climb up walls.
Modeled after the Yellow Wisp, the Drill Wispon is a cone-shaped Wispon that is colored yellow with orange strips spiraling through. It also has a hole in the middle of the cone that resembles the Yellow Wisp's eye. The cone itself is attached to a black footing with yellow bars surrounding the gray grip that is attached to the back of the black footing. The grip itself allows the wielder to hold this Wispon in a comfortable position.
Features and abilities
As its name implies, the Drill Wispon can use the power of the Yellow Wisp and essentially allow the Avatar to use the power of the Yellow DrillColor Power without transforming into the Color Power. The Drill Wispon can be used as an offensive measure against Badniks.
The Drill Wispon allows the user to pierce through enemies, spiralling the user forward to destroy the enemies in front of them. It can also allow the user to climb up walls and tunnel underneath the surface to keep moving forward to the goal. The basic attack of the Drill Wispon is a charge attack with three levels of charge that has the user dash straight ahead at high speed. Care must be taken so that the user does not fly over the edge or into any hazards.
The basic Drill Wispon is unlocked by defeating Infinite in his boss fight in Metropolis. By advancing through the game, the player can unlock different variants of the Drill Wispon. These variants all have the same basic functions, but offer additional skills to the player when equipped:
