The Heavy Soldier is a slow-moving and heavily armored fighting machine. It is one of the latest additions to an already impressive arsenal of Helghast forces and is usually deployed individually to support Helghast ground troops.
With its heavy weaponry and extra-large posture, the Heavy Soldier acts almost like a one-man army. Using an automated and non-detachable StA-6 chaingun/grenade launcher combo, the Heavy Soldier is able to rain down a hail of bullets on anyone that tries to come close. And with the protection offered by its reinforced full-body armor, the Heavy Soldier isn't afraid to engage the enemy head on either.
Apart from its awesome firepower and full body-armor, the Heavy Soldier has another feature guaranteed to leave a lasting impression: its massive posture. The Heavy Soldier is one of Killzone's tallest characters, making an already intimidating encounter even more daunting. Guerrilla Games decided to check up with their coders and design artists to find out about the challenges this extra-large character posed during its development.
