Chaos Dreadnoughts house the fallen veterans of each Chaos Space Marine Legion, henceforth entombed into a robotic shell which provides life support and an extreme battlefield presence. Their counterpart is the Imperial Dreadnought.

DescriptionEdit

Chaos Dreadnoughts are very similar to their Loyalist counterparts. The body of a mortally wounded but feared member of a Renegade or Traitor Legion warband is placed within a sarcophagus that contains multiple life support technologies and this sarcophagus is them placed within the armoured form of a combat walker that the former marine controls using neural impulses.

Unlike their loyalist brothers, most Chaos Marines do not see internment in a Dreadnought as an honor. This is because being trapped within the armoured shell of a Dreadnought while suffused with the power of Chaos drives the Chaos Space Marine insane and transforms the resulting Dreadnought into an relentless and incredibly blood-thirsty killing machine.

As a result, far from being revered for their wisdom or experience like their Imperial counterparts, Chaos Dreadnoughts are shackled securely when not in combat because the crippled Chaos Space Marine within has been driven insane by millennia of being trapped within the cold cybernetic sarcophagus as the power of Chaos warped his mind and spirit. They are used as insane behemoths to trample the enemy and are regarded with caution, as the madman within the Dreadnought can turn his wrath upon his comrades if there are no enemy units within range.

The Dreadnought in the game is armed with a Reaper Autocannon and a Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon. It has a single-use void shield, which grants temporary invulnerablility when in heated situations. The shield will not work if the Dreadnought is being hit by heavy weapons fire whilst the user activates it.
