Kaijuu with unique abilities will attack the city to get to the terminal. Create your team according to the kaijuu forecasted and counter their attack.
Eight meters tall and rather small for a kaijuu, it still poses a huge threat to humans. They come in large numbers and barge through buildings like solider ants.
A 35 meter-tall high kaijuu with huge weight and power. It has a thick layer of armor that missiles and machine cannons barely do any damage against. It is also a kaijuu that specializes in melee combat.
A kaijuu that specializes in attacking with missiles and Gatling guns.
A kaijuu filled with hexogen, which detonates itself when it comes close to its target for an explosive attack.
A kaijuu that protects other kaijuu by shielding them. When a kaijuu is covered with its shield, they will not take any damage. Prioritizing this kaijuu before it emits its shield will be key to combat.
A five meter-tall small scout drone kaijuu that flies with two large tilt-rotors. It uses formations and attacks with small lazers.
A 30-meter flying / digging kaijuu. It attacks from the air using machine guns and missiles. It also has a high defense.
A giant airborne carrier-type kaijuu that attacks by releasing waves of Hunters. It has a thick layer of armor and is also capable of attackig with machine guns.
A mobile factory-type kaijuu that absorbs surrounding materials to create kaijuu inside itself. It continues to create small or medium-sized kaijuu as long as it is alive, so it is wise to destroy this before it bombards you.
A heavy machine-type kaijuu that is over 100 meters tall. It has many weapons and thick armor. The plasma cannon fired from the upper middle part of its body is extremely strong, and even melts the armor of the Sentinels.
