Like the Land Raider, the Squiggoth is equipped with heavy weaponry and can transport both infantry and heavy infantry. However, unlike the Land Raider which is exclusively used for ranged combat, the Squiggoth specializes in melee combat and is more effective against massed infantry. Squiggoths also have the ability to transport more squads, with a maximum carrying capacity of two slots. Although it has an appearance of a creature or daemon, it functions as a vehicle which means it can be repaired. Despite its strength, Squiggoths takes up the most space in the game and can be easily walled in by other units and buildings regardless if it is friend or foe. Consequently, it is advised that players controlling the Orks to build at least one Da Mek Shop at an open area with minimal obstruction by buildings or in game objects. Players who are an enemy of the Orks can use vehicles to surround it and block its path while sending massed ranged infantry behind it to concentrate fire. Despite its immense size, Squiggoths are classified as squigs (the most primitive form of ork life).
