WAR Loaders are Hyperion loaders designed to fill a front-line combat role. They are among the larger loaders and have large incendiary cannons instead of arms.



WAR Loaders have massive incendiary autocannons for arms and can do a stomp attack as melee, along with the standard optical shock blast.

The autocanons have a mandatory 10-second cooldown period during which it can only use melee attacks. This can be used as an advantage by waiting behind cover for their guns to go on cooldown and then pop out and shoot at them with no fear of getting shot at in return. Alternatively, their autocannon arms can be shot off to drastically reduce their threat, as the optic blast is relatively easy to dodge.
