Insectoids were metallic insects created by Nefarious to destroy Metropolis but were thwarted by Qwark. They did not cause too much damage, besides being annoying. They could be easily blasted away with a few shots. In the Unnamed Qwark vid-comic, there was a boss that resembled an Insectoid, most likely a prototype for the enemy in the scrapped beta level.
