A Gauss Cannon

Gauss Cannon is a Green unit and part of the base set. It's a relatively expensive Attackattacker with high FragileFragile health.




Gauss Cannon is the Green resourcegreen Attackattacker unit from the base set. Its Goldgold cost is high for only Attack1 attack, however its Health5 Fragile health make it worth it to go against breaches. It is also the only unit from the base set that cannot be targeted by Apollo, as long as it has more than Health3 health.

Gauss Cannon is a bit expensive for only one constant Attack attack (Tarsier provides only one less damage over the course of a game for a far lower cost), so it should usually not be your main source of damage, but it can be your best option when you already have Green resource and don't need it for defense.

Gauss Cannons are especially useful when the game whittles down into the late-game and breach is imminent, or when going for a Breach me I don't care strategy; they will survive longer than most other Attackattackers thanks to their high Fragilehealth. Beware that low health attackers, like Tarsier and Shadowfang, do not pair well with Gauss Cannon, as in a breach situation your opponent will focus your low health attackers. Thus Gauss Cannon are better paired with other high health units like Iso Kronus.

Gauss Cannons are also constructed by the Gauss Fabricator, which builds one Gauss Cannon per turn for eight turns.
