XB-488 Disposalbots are part of the pre-XT-002 Deconstructor trash. They randomly target a raid member with Cut Scrap Metal, a channeled spell causing fire damage on a single target. When it reaches low health it will activate the ability Self Destruct, causing the bot to detonate and cause a very large amount of damage to players in the surrounding area.
Take out these bots last. They are not very dangerous and the Self Destruct will only trigger when the bot is on very low health. The bot can be killed before it activates Self Destruct with focused DPS.
