Halo Wars 2 Colony DLC Announced


Hello everyone, Jordan back again with all things Halo related for your information needs. 343 Industries have just announced the next Halo Wars 2 DLC, and it certainly is something to get excited about. Old enemies as you’ve never seen them before!


This newest DLC is named Colony, and features a new leader of the same name. Colony is a new Lekgolo leader that commands a deadly and dangerous army of new Hunter forms with the Banished forces on the Ark.


New Units

Skitterer: Lekgolo powered turret with legs. They can be like mini Scarabs when it comes to attack. They can also attach to other units, depending on the size, from 1 to 3 Skitterers per unit.


Goliath: “Hunters on Steroids” as said in the release trailer. While Hunters usually go around in pairs, Goliath Hunters are solo units which are two Hunters in one. Completely overpowering enemy units.


Hunter Captain: A Hunter unit with a heavy set of armour. It can taunt enemies to attack it, and allows you to draw fire off other units.



New Leader Powers

Living Barrier: A series of smaller Lekgolo colonies in armoured small barriers. It allows you to cordon off areas or trap enemy players to allow yourself more breathing room during play.



Hunters Brand: A small but deadly glassing type attack that shoots a beam from the sky to destroy opponents units. It has a short cool down time and is very effective.

Vehicle Symbiote: Allows Lekgolo worms take over a vehicle to increase power and speed for that vehicle.


Devastating Host & Colony Drop: These were not talked about much but they are the ability to drop an army in from the fly where ever you are able.


343 Industries released a ViDoc named Hunt or be Hunted to introduce this new leader.
