The Sunfire Pod is a weapon that appears in Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. It acts as a flash grenade, temporarily blinding any enemy caught in its bright flash.


The Sunfire Pod is a sphere of cooled, cracked magma. It has sunlight energy visible through its cracks and glows when idle.


The Sunfire Pod is a weapon that is great for the level "Lair of the Blind Ones." When thrown, it flies for a short distance, or the player can "cook" the pod and launch it a larger distance by holding down the fire button for a few seconds.

Due to the Blind Ones' sensitivity towards light, one flash will set them ablaze, killing them. It can be useful against Endtrails as well, but they will only be stunned by the impact.

Ammunition is common near the lava pits in the Lair of the Blind Ones. The player must be cautious while in these areas, as Fireborn are present near these pits. The player can acquire the Heart of Fire Talisman to make the task of obtaining these pods much easier.

The Sunfire Pods can still prove to be of great use for stunning enemies, and they are quicker than the Charge Dart Rifle. Unfortunately, they can be found only in the Lair of the Blind Ones, and once they have been used up, ammo cannot be found in later levels. The player can, however, use the Ammo option in the Save Portals to replenish this weapon's ammunition.

Ammo PickupsEdit

  • ​Pod: Restores one pod (this also counts as a pickup).


  • This is one of the few weapons in the Turok series that is thrown by hand. The other weapons are the P.F.M. in Turok: Rage Wars, the Razor Wind, the Boomerang, and Turok: Evolution's Grenade.
  • It is possible to kill other enemies besides the Blind Ones using the Sunfire Pod, but it may require three or more pods for this to happen.
