Spotlight: Ironclad Dreadnought

Learn more about the new Elite unit releasing in the October update - the Ironclad Dreadnought!

Background

Often the first to take charge into heavily defended enemy territory, the Ironclad Dreadnought is among the strongest of the Space Marines. Utilizing its heavy layers of armour, the Ironclad Dreadnought trades range for sheer brute strength and durability, creating seismic events to knock enemies off their feet, and keep them in the sights of their Battle Brothers.

A melee walker with exceptional crowd control capabilities, the Ironclad can create controlled seismic events that stun enemies and even uproot the ground itself - temporarily blocking movement.

Abilities

The Ironclad Dreadnought delivers a powerful blow every 6th melee attack. Deals bonus damage.

Seismic Slam

The Ironclad Dreadnought triggers a controlled earthquake in the target direction, knocking back infantry and stunning vehicles in an expanding cone. The ground is uprooted at the end of the shockwave, creating a wall that temporarily blocks movement.
