Shadow Hawk Specs

Shadow Hawk Hardpoints


The SHD-5M comes from the factory with Endo-Steel, Double Heat Sinks, and an XL engine, making it a significant upgrade over the SHD-2D, albeit at a higher purchase price. The SHD-5M is a highly versatile skirmisher.


  • Versatile weapons potential allows for engagement at all ranges.


  • No weapons in left arm.
  • Mismatched weapons systems make Shadow Hawk vulnerable to more specialized opponents.
