"Fist of the Infantry"
- Guards creed

Tactical Analysis

  • Heavy Lifter: Guards are heavily trained infantry that are capable of carrying heavier loads than standard Shepherds without slowing down. Sporting similar armor and equipment, they are as mobile and at home operating in uninhabitable environments as their MX-15 totting cousins.
  • Tank's Bane: Guards are issued with Matador Anti-Tank Rocket Launchers. Capable of firing two different warheads, the Matador is a flexible system. The Phosgene Warhead is equipped with a tracking system, and is faster to lock on and will track its target. It also causes an AoE slow effect on the area around the target upon impact. The Penetrator Warhead is dumb fire and requires a significantly longer lock on. However, it has much higher AP and damage, and will cause serious problems for enemy tanks. In addition, Guards can use their 9mm Berettas at close range against enemy infantry if the situation calls for it.
  • Dedicated: Guards are meant to be used against enemy armor divisions, and have limited anti infantry or anti air capabilities. Do note use them in such situations as they will be easily overwhelmed.
