Krootox

"The Krootox breed for battle."

The Krootoxen (singular Krootox) are huge gorilla-like creatures from the Kroot genetic family. Originally they were used as beasts of burden, but were later trained for war. The Krootoxen are the Tau army's answer to walkers like Dreadnoughts and Wraithlords. These beasts lumber into battle while the Kroot Carnivore riders take shots at the enemy with the powerful back-mounted rifle. This unit also excels in close combat, where it can hold its own against much larger forces.

Krootoxen do not regenerate health in Dark Crusade.

Tactics

Krootoxen are available to players who build the Kauyon Command Post after researching Teachings of Kauyon. Krootoxen are primarily useful for holding down enemies in melee, absorbing massive amounts of damage, and engaging enemy vehicles. Against infantry, a Krootox actually does more damage with its ranged attack (less per hit but attacks faster), although melee is generally preferable to keep enemy infantry away from your ranged units. While Krootoxen have massive health (which becomes even greater with Improved Metallurgy, which allows them to attain the highest health for non-relic units), they heal very slowly and, although they count towards the vehicle cap, they understandably cannot be repaired. Nevertheless, Krootoxen provide a huge damage sponge for the Tau army, 2 Krootoxen combined with 2 squads of Kroot Hounds are an unstoppable melee force.
