The Triglav Protector is a vehicle on the Volskaya Foundry battleground. It utilizes a crew of two (one pilot, one gunner). Its loadout includes a gatling cannon, a laser, and rockets. It also has the ability to charge and generate a shield.

Background[edit | edit source]

Volskaya Industries is a Russian company involved in Svyatogor production, and is Russia's premier anti-omnic security force. After discovering her factories and the surrounding city are in danger of being invaded by beings from other worlds, Katya Volskaya immediately began to work on a new mech series - the Triglav Protector - to defend her homeland from the denizen of the Nexus.[1]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Throughout the match a Control Point will activate at one of three locations, beginning in a neutral capture state. Once a player stands on the control point without any enemies, they gain control progress for their team at a steady rate. When a team's victory progress hits 100%, they win the event. The control point deactivates and a two-person Triglav Protector spawns on the point for the winning team after a short delay.

Uniquely, it's controlled by two players, the first serving as a pilot, and the second serving as a gunner. If both the Pilot and Gunner seats are occupied, it will gain 10 Armor and 25% increased damage.

The pilot controls movement and can Charge at a target enemy, fire a Rocket Fist that roots a hero or disables a structure, and activate a Shield Emitter that grants the mech Armor and grants a shield to nearby allies. The gunner has an array of offensive abilities, including a Particle Cannon that charges in range, a Gatling Cannon that fires bullets at the cursor location, and a Scorching Laser that slices the terrain in a line then detonates for heavy damage.

One interesting part of this objective is that damage will NOT prevent players from entering the mech, only hard CC like a stun or a fear. It is also worth noting that the first player to enter the mech can switch to the gunner position if they choose using the heroic key (default: "R"). A player can leave the Triglav Protector (from either seat) using the trait key (default: "D"). If the pilot leaves the Protector, it cannot move but will not disappear until the timer or health bar depletes.
