Low-grade Sangvis Ferri combat unit. It has poor combat ability but it can be easily mass produced. Typically used in defense and search operations. They attack by physically ramming their targets with great force, and their combat power in large numbers should not be underestimated.

Appearances

Dinergate units make their first appearance in chapter 2-1 and later on appear in various story, emergency and midnight chapters. They typically appear in moderate or large size groups of themselves or supplementing other units.

Gameplay

Dinergate units have low individual health and low evasion, their short attack range is compensated by their moderately fast movement speed and very high damage up close, individual attacks can devastate even an armored SG type T-Dolls.

Dinergate swarms can be difficult for low rate of fire RF dolls to deal with. In a SG/MG formation if MG dolls does not have sufficient ammo chain to finish off the wave and are forced to reload for the second salvo, the Dinergates may capitalize up on this reloading time frame and devastate the frontal SG units.

A notable example of a dangerous enemy combination appeared during Singularity E3 was the Guard/Dinergate enemy echelon, where high HP Guard units walked ahead of a large amount of Dinergates, if one were unable to defeat the Guards in time, the player's echelon will suffer heavy casualty due to the sheer amount of Dinergates rushed towards their T-Dolls.

The most effective way to combat Dinergate units is using AR and SMG type T-Dolls who have continuous damage outputs, or capable of dealing area damage by launching/throwing explosive/molotovs. One can also deploy SG/MG formation with sufficient ammo chain. However the most effective way to deal with Dinergate swarms is to make use of an airstrike fairy, since they have low individual HP, airstrike fairy's flat damage skill across the combat field will defeat all Dinergates simultaneously.

Lore / Story involvement

A small mechanical automaton of Sangvis Ferri origin, visual appearance similar to a small quadruped animal, its small body frame means it's capable of fast/agile movement in smaller spaces, and could be mass produced easily. Dinergate unit can be identified by its large frontal oculary sensor, an automaton unit typically used for security guarding, sector monitoring, also for search & rescue operations.

After Butterfly event and the Sangvis Ferri command chain overhaul, Dinergates are now being used as combat units, their individual combat performance is low and threat is considered trivial compared to Sangvis Ferri Humanoid type androids. The first edition of Girls Frontline artbook mentions that they are equipped with a short range electromagnetic pulse type weapon mounted on their back, it can actually devastate humanoid type androids such as T-Dolls effectively if they can get close enough. Dinergate units will resort to physical body slamming and/or ramming attacks against their opponent should their primary weapon becomes damaged.[1]

Dinergate units come in many variants, possibly for different security roles. Other than standard mechanical legs, Dinergate variants can be equipped with airborne and waterborne movement instruments. Military graded armored variant of Dinergate is 'Tarantula', an experimental model of Dinergate with a large physique and thick armor is produced later on is given the codename 'Garm'.[2]

Using T-Doll AR M4 SOPMOD IIThumb button.pngM4 SOPMOD II  and her weapon as comparison, a standard model of Dinergate should measure roughly 30-40 x 20-25 x 25-30 cm in dimension excluding exterior attachments.


Trivia

  • After modifications, Dinergates can function as a civilian mechanical pet. Presumably, after loading an appropriate operating system and removing the lethal weapon mounted on its back.[1]
    • Dinergates are often called 'dogs' by the player base because of this, as well as due to the physical similarities.
    • A successful example of a pet Dinergate would be 'Chopsticks'; G&K T-Doll HG P7Thumb button.pngP7  captured a Dinergate unit, then kept it as a pet and named it Chopsticks. Chopsticks is one of the mascots for Girls Frontline, it has made many appearances in both official and fan made content and comics. The most prominent appearance of Chopsticks is the G&K Chopstick News, where Chopsticks hosts interviews with various contributing artists of Girls Frontline and inquires about character settings and backstories.
    • AR M4A1Thumb button.pngM4A1  also own a pet Dinergate in the Girls Frontline: Healing Chapter OVA.
    • Many variants of pet Dinergates can be found throughout the game, often appearing as bonus effects of a complete 5* rarity furniture set or as part of character costumes. Some examples are the one dressed up as a ghost with a large coat in the 2017 Halloween set, the airborne Dinergates disguised as bats in P7's costume Demonic Gunslinger Nun, and the waterborne Dinergate unit kept in a plastic bag in SMG MP5Thumb button.pngMP5 's costume Sleepless Flower.
    • Unfortunately rogue Dinergate units cannot be found in the dormitory's pet rescue station, meaning that players cannot adopt Dinergates as pets (yet).
  • Dinergate's physical strength is speculated to be relatively high; a furniture piece introduced in 2018's Mid Autumn Festival is a Japanese style Mikoshi mounted on the back of four dinergates. The Mikoshi itself can carry a T-Doll and move at a relatively high speed inside the dorm.
