They disintegrate 1 random item from your inventory. You count as one of the possible random items.

So every now and then it'll disintegrate you instead of an item.

Slapped to death by a Psirebral playing as a Striker on Quick Normal.

I was down to one charge on my Tarkan Field Surgery, had no Med Drone charges left, was starving, and I desperately needed to get to a Cooker if I was going to stretch my food for a respectable amount of time to come. So no resting for me.

A Psirebral was about the last thing I wanted to see, so first I tried to Fear it. No luck. It didn't TK Fist me right away, so I popped my Field Surgery... Failure at 67% success chance, ow. Now it has Deflect up, so I can't shoot it, but it walks into spear range, so I'm good. Still no TK fist, luckily. But it slaps me to death before I can finish it off. :(

The TK Fist would have at least been a respectable way to die, but this guy was like, "Nope!" *slapslapslap*

I probably should have used an energy cell to recharge my Med Drone a while back, but I was jealously hoarding them for the late game... Like I ever get that far...

I wisely discovered an Adaptoid in a room pretending to be an ammo container.
I smirk as I set up for an easy kill on the adaptoid.

As i get a bit close to it, I step on a mine, activate the adaptoid and the thing angrily one shots me, gg.

So I was on floor 10, and I found myself a 4D printer. Up till this point, everything had been perfect. I hadn't found any new guns, but I did have about 400 pistol rounds, my trusty knife, lots of health kits and oh-so many grenades. My armour was a little low on durability, but I was intending to reprint it.

Oh cruel fates, how you had other ideas.
As soon as I touch the 4d printer, a stream of nanites fly out of it and instantly destroy my knife.

Ok. Ok, thats a bit of a kick to the teeth, but I'm sure I can find another melee weapon. How hard can it be, right?

Apparently, very hard. Four floors later I had found no new weapons, ammo, or repair stations. My armour had long melted away and I was down to using my fists and the grenades I still had. Funnily enough, I had a constant supply of the damn things. I ended up with 6 HE grenades at one point.
But all of the explosives in the world couldn't save me from the crappy disease blob that charged forward and gave me Space Influenza. I fought the beasts and robots off with grenades but the infection kept getting worse and worse.

I could heal myself with psi powers every so often but it was just a matter of time now. I had to find a cure.
I got down to the next floor by just running from the remaining creatures to find a ammo box with about 20 pistol rounds in it. Back in the game.
I ran out into the hallway and found a medbay. It had a couple of swarms in it which went down without a hitch, but the doctor robot ripped my health bar down till it was nearly non existent.
But at least I could repair one of the medical bays and heal myself...

Lolnope. It blew up and killed me.
That was the most disappointing death I have every had in any game ever. I had survived by the skin of my teeth for so long...
