Description

The Bulkhead is a heavily armored dual plasma cannon balanced atop a cheap set of legs. While this gives it an impressive combination of health and range, it is unable to aim or fire its cannons without first stopping to brace itself. This drawback is less pronounced in the water, where it can float to fire then sink to reposition.

Tactics And Strategy

The Bulkhead allows for easier disposal of static defenses, and just 3 of them can even topple a Stinger. In combination with Limpets, Bulkheads can target faster units, such as raiders.
