An Ambot is a cybernetic construct used for heavy mining duties across the Imperium of Man. Its central nervous system is that of the xenos creature known as an Ambull that exists on many different worlds across the galaxy.
The Ambull was chosen to serve as the controlling intelligence of the construct because of its native adaptation to subterranean environments and its instinct for tunnelling. This is of great use in finding new deposits of valuable ores. Every Ambot is implanted with cortical limiters to reduce its aggressiveness and prevent it from escaping from its handlers and running amok.
On the Hive World of Necromunda, some of the gangs have gained access to Ambots and altered their programming to turn them into powerful engines of destruction. They are then deployed in the constant wars among the gangers of the underhive of Hive Primus.
