The Detroit omnium

Omniums are self-improving automated robotics factories installed in locations worldwide, originally constructed by the now-defunct Omnica Corporation. Though these factories were eventually dismantled following evidence of corporate fraud, they later reactivated of their own accord and launched attacks against humanity in a conflict that would come to be known as the Omnic Crisis.[1] The robots produced by omniums are known as omnics.[2] These factories are powered by fusion cores that, if destroyed, can result in nuclear fallout.[3]

Known Omniums[edit | edit source]

The Australian omnium
  • Australia: The Outback omnium and its omnics were given the Australian omnium and its surrounding land after the Omnic Crisis in an attempt to make a long-term peace. Dissatisfied human residents created the Australian Liberation Front, which destroyed the omnium and unintentionally turned the Outback into an irradiated wasteland.[3] Its remains were used to create Junkertown, and the Junkers continue to pilfer the omnium.[4]
The Nigerian omnium
  • Nigeria: The Nigerian omnium was a massive manufacturing omnium. The OR14 "Idina" line of security robots were built here before the start of the Omnic Crisis.[5]
  • United States: The Detroit omnium was the subject of an article, in which the author attempted to find answers regarding the Omnic Crisis.[7]
