Description

The Crab's huge shells obliterate large swarms of cheap units, and can also outrange basic defenses. When it stops walking, Crab curls up into armored form reducing incoming damage to a third. The Crab's main weakness is its lack of mobility.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

It is better for defense than attack despite it's high damage, because if it is not moving it gets a much stronger defense and can tank hits better.
