It first activated to help him retrieve a Chaos Emerald but after the doctor noticed Sonic the Hedgehog who is also after the emerald, Eggman ordered it to attack Sonic. Beacon mainly bounced Sonic around but with the help of Tails and Amy, Sonic was able to destroy it. Eggman later rebuilt Beacon to help fend off an attack by G.U.N.'s air force.
- Beacon slightly resembles the Balkiry badniks from Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and the Egg Hawk from Sonic Heroes.
- Beacon might be made of some material different to metal, as it made Sonic bounce around on it before he destroyed it.
