Mobile artillery unit that fires missile barrages. Data version: 3.10

The Manticore is an Imperial Guard artillery vehicle. It is extremely slow and fragile, but has a longer range than other artillery units and requires no direct line of sight to fire.

  • The only artillery unit with indirect fire; can generally fire over any obstacle, but sometimes a missile may get blocked by very high terrain on some maps
  • Missile barrages launched manually through an ability
  • Uses the new multi-targeting system, allowing the player to place all four missiles individually
  • Barrages are powerful, but have a delay and a warning marker


  • A manticore is a mythical beast with a tail that shoots poisonous spikes.
  • The Manticore's firing noises strongly resemble that of the Nebelwerfer 42's.
