Krosshair is a robot.

I know I haven't been on for a while, but I found this image of what appears to be Krosshair from DKC3 on DK Wiki. It's definitely him. The sirens on him are the sirens you hear in the level. Those things above his arms are speakers and he's holding the cannon used to shoot at you. I didn't know what Krosshair would look like, but I didn't know he'd look like this! Pretty cool, I'd say. 8-)

I never even considered this guy could be the one shooting at you in Krack-shot Kroc. I've had this image for bloody ages but never thought about it. I always thought he was some old design of Karbine or maybe even KAOS.

Although I've read around elsewhere and it may be more appropriate to call him Krackshot after the level name, with Krosshair referring only to the targeting you see onscreen.

The propeller on his back explains how he could follow you around the level. There is also an antenna on his head. There might even be unused sprites of him in the game! If that's not the case, then maybe he wasn't meant to be seen in game, but Rare wanted to show people what he looked like.

Oh... my... god... That's freaking amazing that you figured that out! I just always thought that Krackshot was a kremling with a cannon or something...

Is he the same one in DK64 (in the aztec level)? If so, they totally should have showed him in the game!

At the DKU they seem to assume that the crosshairs in Angry Aztec are indeed Krosshair from DKC3. Seems logical enough to me. Since he's got speakers that could be how he shouts "GET OUT!".

I always thought it was a Bazooka-looking enemy that shot you in this level.

Nice find, good to know that the faceless enemy had an actual design.

My mind is blown. I always thought he was some offscreen Kremling with a cannon or something!

I used to think that was actually BARON K! Well now we all know, its a ROBOT!!! Hey! Isin't he in the level Angry Aztec of DK64? If thats true, he should have been flying around the screen with the cannon so we could have recognized him. That would have been awesome!

A bit of a bump, but I wanted to say that I always thought that render of Krosshair/Krackshot was a beta version of Karbine.

I saw this a while ago. It would make an interesting character.

Yeah, they really should of showed Krosshair in the game itself. I think it would make DKC3 more interesting.

I always thought that enemy was a "Karbine", which was behind the screen.
