Game Wars: Helghast VS Chimera (pt.5)
Alright, so in part 5 we’re going to discuss the bigger weapons. such as vehicles, and machines of destruction. This is kind of meshed in with part 4, but due to the longness it would add, i decided to give this it’s own section since both factions have a formidable array of vehicles.
(CAUTION: may contain minor spoilers for both the Killzone and Resistance Series)
The most important vehicle for the Helghast has to be there dropship. it can deploy troops into any battlefield without having to land via rapelling ropes, all while providing air support from its guns.
The Helghast also have a strong number of tanks ranging from offensive models, to troop transport models. these “offensive” models feature a turret for the big rounds and a secondary machine gun. most of the troop transport tanks will have a machine gun nest on the top for a gunner to sit in, but once he’s taken out, the vehicle is defenseless.
The Helghast also have these huge war ships made to fight up in space, or to float high above land and obliterate ground forces. in addition they have several small space cruisers for space and high altitude battles.
Some unique vehicles include a weapon mounted jetpack, a mole-like tank that can plow through walls, and a huge wrecking machine called the MAWLR. this thing is huge and apart from the war ship, probably the strongest the Helghast have. it’s hard to bring one of these babies down.
The “Stalker” is probably the most important vehicle on the Chimeran side. basically the tank for their forces. featuring powerful firepower including anti-aircraft. it’s quite mobile able to move where it please, but suffers from an exposed power core in the back. eliminate the power core and its gone.
The Chimera also have huge war ships, though they do look slightly bulkier. in addition they do have several small space craft vehicles like the Helghast. These war ships probably pack just as much punch as the Helghast, but these look much slower and harder to maneuver.
Much like the Helghast, the Chimera too have a unique set of vehicles. they have a underground burrowing vehicle as well, and if you can tell by the picture, their own huge machine of destruction, the “Titan”. it’s practically the brother of the MAWLR. they’re almost composed of the exact same stuff.
However the Chimera have a weapon that could turn the tide: the Terraformer. basically floats in the sky and destroys everything on the ground. end of story.
UPPER HAND - HELGHAST
thought the Chimera have the terraformer, i’m afraid the rest of the vehicles are too evenly matched. for instance, the Helghast can easily take out the Terraformer with their warships. in the long run, the Helghast win this portion with their bigger variety in vehiclery.
So that’s it, it’s all been added up, in part 6 we’ll see who’s going to take Helghan for their own!
