  • Poison Fiend
  • Elite Fiend
  • Brute
  • Exploding Brute
  • Elite Brute

Anomalies are different from zones because when you defeat waves of cube monsters the anomaly gets collapsed. A progress bar will appear on the top of your screen which gets splits into three parts, these parts get filled with each cube monster you kill. When the bars are completely filled the anomaly will collapse and spew forth several treasure items, along with a legendary-rare Sideway Rifle.
