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

DescriptionEdit

With dense ceramite armour plating and a variety of weapon options, Dreadnoughts provide mobile and heavy fire support which is not encumbered when crossing unstable terrain. Belied by their lumbering appearance, Dreadnoughts are surprisingly agile and not significantly slower than their power armored brethren.

The Space Marine within the sarcophagus will control the robotic body of the walker and experience the outside world through cybernetic neural links and sensors implanted within his life support systems. They are equipped as the battle field dictates with a variety of weapons options.

While they are welcomed for their tremendous firepower and close combat strength, they are revered as living relics of the Chapter. Due to the life support systems in the sarcophagus Dreadnoughts can live to be thousands of years old, and likewise accrue millennia of battlefield experience. As such their knowledge and insight is well respected and often called for when planning an offensive.

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