“Our greatest weapon is the Hand of Ruk. Named for our greatest hero, the Hand of Ruk is a mobile military base. Six hard-point turret serve as garrisons, while the Hand of Ruk can construct any ground unit needed for the front line. Wielding the collective will of our people, its main cannon can lay waste to a building or approaching army with a single shot.”

The Hand of Ruk is the Beta epic unit.[2]


Named after one of the saviors of the Beta people, the original Hand of Ruk suffered an accident during field tests. Afraid of its power, Beta leadership vowed not to deploy the behemoth unless absolutely necessary. Recent iterations have become more stable, allowing for construction directly on the battlefield. In truth, Ruk would protest such a dangerous weapon being named after him, due to this gentle nature. Unfortunately, the first Hand of Ruk was commissioned long after his death.


Named after a hero of the Beta people, the Hand of Ruk is a mobile military base that can make entire continents shudder. With six turret hard points, it can house nearly any Beta unit and contains a manufacturing plant that can build units as fast as any stationary factory. Truly a force to be reckoned with!


Note: All factories and attachments must be connected to and powered by the same Large Hub. Creating the Hand of Ruk removes these structures as they become the components of the epic unit. 


  • The Hand of Ruk is able to fire the furthest of any epic unit. Use vision from other units to reach max range.
  • The Hand of Ruk's nuke is able to be ground-targetted similar to other artillery attacks.
  • Six turret hard points present on the Hand of Ruk allow any unit capable of mounting Beta wall pillars to catch a ride on the Hand of Ruk and defend it.
  • Unless mounted by Cloudbursts or Guardians, the Hand of Ruk has no defense against air.
  • The Hand of Ruk is able to create and deploy any Beta land unit, but cannot create air units.
