How effective would it be to drop subterranean, self replicating robots around, that kill anything with a heartbeat, but you give good guys, like a watch or something that hid them from the robots?

    I swear I saw a 1980's or 1990's scifi movie with a similar plot.

        It's a bad movie but it's super creepy. Saw it for the first time at 4am at my uncle's house.

      "Screamers", with Peter Weller from Robocop. Inspired by a scifi short story by Philip k Dick, "Second Variety".

    how about i detonate some underground emp to make all the robots dead or turn off everyones watches.

    also is the weilders of such a weapon loose track of even one bot, things could get messy.

      id catch one in a pickle jar, go above ground and demand 1 million dallerinos or id open the jar.
      or id just put it on my desk and use a magnet on a stick to play with it.

        actually, I don't think they are. One of the points of Dick's novel was that in the end, the "human" screamers were carrying anti-screamer grenades, to kill each other.

    You could make a robot that hunts those robots near whatever resource deposits they use to replicate.

    Chinese or Russians would make a cheap knockoff copy without any of the IFF or safety protocols and Earth would become uninhabitable.

    Bye civilians, bye bye, BYE.
    And the enemy doesnt have to fuck with these, just fuck with the watches, this is just a more advanced version of claymore roomba, its funny but you just cant put it anywhere near you.
