Melee skill
Melee squad with high damage and low durability. Can be upgraded with burnas (flame throwers) and a squad leader. Data version: 3.18

Slugga Boyz are Ork boyz equipped with choppas and sluggas, wearing practically no armor. They deal good damage, but are quite vulnerable to ranged fire and area-effect attacks. The tier 2 squad leader upgrade improves their speed and durability.

  • Good against basic units but model losses can hurt your economy
  • The infantry_fire_resist armor type gives 25% resistance against flame damage, but because of their low health they are still very vulnerable to fire
  • Warboss global abilities and the Mekboy heal make them much more powerful
  • Good at killing retreating models
  • Very fast generator bashers when equipped with burnas
  • Good synergy with the Wartrukk, which can deliver them behind the enemy and reinforce model losses
