  • Lascannon: Costs 45 Requisition and 115 Power and deals 83-101 ranged damage. Equips the Predator with a high powered laser weapon, devastating against armored units. It is long ranged and is effective against Vehicles and Buildings. This upgrade can be researched twice. Each Lascannon upgrade permanently replaces the default Heavy Bolter weapons on one side of the vehicle.


As a main battle tank of the Space Marines, this unit offers high durability with good offensive capabilities. As the game progresses, upgrade options such as improving weaponry to that of a lascannon for greater damage against other vehicles becomes available. The default configuration is autocannon turret and heavy bolter sponson which are mounted at the sides. All weapons can be upgraded to a lascannon which roughly deals doubled anti-vehicle damage but halves the anti-infantry damage. The basic choice is mixing the turret lascannon with the heavy bolters sponson. For additional armor penetration against Buildings and Vehicles, it is recommended to upgrade the heavy bolter sponsons to a lascannon.
