Info

The Slammer is the Advanced version of the Dox. With higher damage and more health than the Dox, a group of Slammers are excellent for flanking an enemy and wreaking havoc before the defenders can mobilize.

The Slammer also contains a torpedo launcher and can walk across the sea floor.

The Slammer can shoot farther than it can see. So radar coverage or scouts greatly increases the effectiveness of Slammers.

Amphibious

The Combat Fabricator is amphibious, allowing it to walk under water.
