Hyperions tower over the vanguard of Retribution forces, armed with an incomprehensibly powerful starburst weapon capable of annihilating anything in its blast. Originally designed centuries ago to protect Ios from the unspeakable threat of dragons, the power Hyperions wield is so terrible they were banned from Iosan cities and relegated to deployment along its borders. Incissar Vyros, emboldened by victory, has now overridden that order to add these most formidable Iosan constructs ever developed to the Retribution’s arsenal.

Thoughts on Hyperion
Hyperion in a nutshell
Hyperion's Starburst cannon is among the strongest ranged attacks in the game. Feared by many, it can remove swaths of small-based infantry at a time with a critical hit. It also offers very strong melee capabilities.
