Core Electrical Units are large destructible items in Just Cause 3.


It's a large electrical transformer for high voltage. It's always surrounded by Circuit Breakers.


Shooting anywhere will eventually destroy it, but it gets destroyed immediately when several of the relatively weak insulators are destroyed. (Insulators are those grey stacks that hold the power cables.) The insulators can be pulled down using the Grappler. Explosives and heavy weapons can destroy it instantly. Additionally, as the main unit is usually mounted on rails, using the Grappler to pull it any significant distance in either direction will destroy all the insulators simultaneously and rapidly, in addition to the consequent explosion being large enough to take out smaller chaos objects nearby (whichever it is now closest to) without the need for additional hooks, bombs or the like. Shooting the fans will also destroy it in a short time.

As one of the larger chaos objects, it gives 400 chaos points upon destruction.
