"My engineers tried several experiments trying to make a Tickferno that could shoot out a stream of flame, but the weak, little things kept setting themselves on fire. We had to settle for the current ones, which can blast a line of targets with a powerful heat ray that saps strength and wipes out energy. We’ve started a program of extermination, but they breed fast, so there are still plenty available if you can find a use for them." – The Manual, The Book of Pyro

Tickferno is Pyro's level 2 creature.

Creature Information[]


"The tickferno saps energy with a blast of heat. Now, without energy, rangers can't shoot those magic bolts and wizards can't cast spells." – Zyzyx, The Prophecy (Pyro)

The creature is obtained along with Fireform and in campaign is received in Pyro's second mission. It shares its unit model with Scarab and Vortick.

Name Etymology[]

Tickferno's name is derived from the words "tick-", describing its heritage, and "-inferno", describing its mode of attack.


Tickfernos are a species of insects who are descendants of the common Tick, enslaved by Pyro.

Since they have no specified home, they are presumed to be spread out all over Pyroborea.


As an insect, Tickferno's taunts are mostly consisted of buzzing and droning.

Special and Passive Abilities[]

Passive Abilities: Attacks take away large amounts of mana but little health.


Surprisingly good unit, using half a dozen really takes its toll on the enemy. Use an equal number of these and snipers in your ranged division.
