The Hand of Ruk is a Beta epic unit.

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![2]


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.
