OverviewEdit

Dune Riders are premium light vehicles that function as an artillery type unit with far greater mobility. They cost Resource-nanopod 18.

They possess two attack types. Their first, available at rank 1, strikes up to 5 units in an 'X' formation. It does relatively minor damage compared to other artillery attacks, but it does possess the ability to strike an opponent's third row while the Dune Rider is sitting safe in your third row. Unlike most other checkered attack types, the Dune Rider is able to fire twice before needing a lengthy reload.

At rank 3 a second attack becomes available called Triple Strike. This attack primarily targets a single unit and fires a volley of shells. It can also randomly strike other units in the squares surrounding its intended target. It has the ability to deal a good amount of damage, but it is inconsistent as well. Like the above attack, it can be used twice before the Dune Rider needs to reload.

Dune Riders also have the benefit of extremely high defense for an artillery type unit. This makes it easy for them to dodge attacks coming from low offense units like tanks.

They are limited by their low Stat-HP pool and the fact that their limited stock of ammunition and lengthy reload time ensure they often are unable to attack.
