“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Krakens are heavy ordinance platforms employed by Maliwan's elite forces. A product of their weapons project, Valhalla, these powerful, quadrupedal walkers are deployed against the Vault Hunter intruders at Midnight's Cairn.
These massive artillery batteries will utilize their missile pods as their primary means of attack, launching missiles armed with a powerful, explosive payload into the air before they rain down from the sky. If their opponents are proving much more of a threat behind cover, they will either march or launch themselves with their thrusters to another position. If enough of their health is chipped away, they will envelop themselves in shields and create an impenetrable dome shield around them; to disable the shield, the Vault Hunter(s) should fire at the mech through the openings in its barrier to remove the shields and mitigate the threat of its dome shield.
