The Attack Pod is a floating spherical green vehicle with room inside for one Gem of Squaridot's size. The top half of the pod is retractable and has a window in front when extended. The bottom half features two retractable mechanical arms.
In the post credits, the Attack Pod jumped into hyperspace.
In the second version of the game, it crashed inside of Hessonite's old warship.
Like many other Homeworld vehicles, the Attack Pod can float in mid-air with no visible propulsion mechanism. It can also create a vacuum effect with its arms that pulls nearby people and objects toward it, spinning its fingers rapidly as it does so.
- The Attack Pod's shape, size, and color scheme make it resemble an armed version of the Escape Pod.
- The Attack Pod's cockpit with its top retracted resembles the Egg Mobile from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.
