It has uses but it's also kind of pricey in points.
Cool, thanks for the info, I'm also liking the outsized las cannons, I wonder if they'll make that shield generator available to contemptor dreads too?

It looks a tad large for a contemptor. Fluffwise I'd say it needs the bigger power plant to project a force field than a standard contemptor could provide. Or I could be completely wrong. 😎

Fair point, do you know anything about the dodo dread with the big ass lascannons? I'm torn about getting a dodo or another contemptor!

The las cannons haven't been released yet. Can't see how they'd be any different to a normal las cannon though. I must admit the deredeo has grown on me, but if I was buying anything tomorrow it would be a leviathan dread. With the quad autocannon and siege that thing looks bad ass.

Yes the leviathan is a beast, I'm holding out on that to see what other weapons or variants of it they release. The big ass las cannons on the dodo dread look quite large, and only one on each side, me thinks there will be a buff for them
