Weapons Ordnance Rugged Machine Specialists (W.O.R.M.S.) are the artillery specialists of the Cobra ground forces. Trained to man any position on a Maggot, be it driver, gunner, loader or even diesel mechanic. A four man team can be completely self efficient out in the battle field but even a two man team can successfully do the job.

W.O.R.M.S.es were deployed on Cobra operations including:
- The capturing of an oil terminal in the Gulf of Arabia, which was liberated by Action Force.
- The W.O.R.M.S.' filecard says that the Maggot usually operates with a crew of four, but can get by with just two. Of course, the toy actually only included one.
- Working names included "Crabs," "Roaches," "Slugs" and "Grubs."
- Presumably each of these would have been turned into an acronym, as well.
