    • You can also topple buildings or other massive objects onto enemies, allowing you to make attacks with “Object” improvised weapons at a range of up to 8 spaces. This destroys the object, even if it is an “unbreakable” object.

Awkward. A heavy jaeger has disadvantage on Dexterity ability checks and Dexterity saving throws.

Bulky. A heavy jaeger cannot dive for cover.

Catalyst Enhancements. During Rainbow Serpent turn, the pilots of a Catalyst-enhanced jaeger can choose to activate a Catalyst benefit, gaining one of the following benefits:

  • Ionic Antiballistic Shields. The jaeger has special shields that can be activated to block attacks. Once before the jaeger’s next turn, when an attack its it, it can gain a +5 bonus to its Defense against that attack, potentially turning the hit into a miss.
  • Ionic Reinforced Musculature. The jaeger’s movement speed is increased by 2 spaces until the start of its next turn.

Momentum. When a heavy jaeger takes the Dash action, it must move in a straight line.
