The Dreadnought (Dread) is a heavy Space Marine assault walker vehicle. The walker is actually a life-supporting sarcophagus for the remains of a mortally wounded Space Marine veteran deemed beyond the help of conventional means, yet worthy of the rare honor of becoming a holy Dreadnought. The walkers are both sacred relics of their Chapter and venerated heroes.

  • Melee vehicle, effective against all target types.
  • The sight of a Dreadnought killing enemy units inspires allies in radius 45, removing suppression, increasing damage by 20%, and reducing received suppression by 20% for 20 seconds.
  • Can upgrade to a ranged weapon, but loses the inspiration ability.
