My Little Kubrow

The thing about hatching a Helminth Charger before completing the tutorial pet quest Howl of the Kubrow is that half the stuff involved in getting your Helminth Charger into battle doesn’t… actually work. So after some messing around, I got myself another Kubrow egg and went and bred myself a Kubrow. What the fuck is a Kubrow you ask? It’s a space dog. With a horn on its nose.
