In-Game Information[]

A prudent pilot, his goal is to get behind his foe thereby gaining the upper hand. Unfortunately, this tactic requires mobility and conflicts with his preference for tread-based leg parts. Unwilling to change, he struggles to advance.


Back Breaker's biggest flaw, as his description states, is his sluggish, sitting-duck level mobility. He will simply lumber around the battlefield while haplessly shooting you with his pulse cannons or rifle. His FCS' small targeting reticule makes it difficult for him to even keep a constant bead on you, so take advantage of this. Stay out of his line of fire, and if done right, you should be able to defeat Back Breaker with minimal (or even zero) damage taken.



The name Castor refers to the second brightest star in the constellation Gemini and one of the brightest stars in the night sky
