Becoming a Launcher
The Gunner must first reach level 15.
Awakening as a Wrecking Ball
A blinding flash of light, then an ear-splitting roar…then instantaneous devastation that leaves nary a tree branch smoldering in the dirt. Is this the fury of an angry god? No, but something close, something mortal that can create divine devastation. It is a gift perhaps granted by the gods themselves, but a gift that they must now regret bequeathing unto man.
The Launcher who can declare “I shall see light and bring to it darkness”…that is a Launcher who has awakened into a Wrecking Ball. Wrecking Ball is a legendary title belonging to the one who annihilated the Dragon’s army squadron during the Mechanical Revolution. It is the name given only to the most highly regarded Imperial Guard. It is the name of the one who serves, with power and authority, as a commander to the gods.
The Launcher must first reach level 50.
Alternatively, if the player skips Unending Foreboding:

Awakening as a Destroyer
Short on battle supplies, the Imperial Army continuously fled from battle.
The spirit of the soldiers was ruined, just like the farmlands that were ruined from the long war.
But soldiers had to continue fighting and grab their weapons before they could heal their wounds.
Humans were exhausted. And the weapons rotted.
This is a lost battle and you know it. Wouldn't it be better to just give up now?
Such rumors were common. One of the units were annihilated as they lost faith
in their commander and acted on its own.
However, the leaders of the Imperial Army was not overlooking the situation.
They chose the most skilled and solid people among the Wrecking Balls.
and secretly trained them. An operation that temporarily put them on the defensive.
Of course, they were given newly developed weapons that were created with
everything they had.
Even their trainers were overwhelmed by their intense training. However,
with the mission of defending Empyrean from the Kartel on their mind, nobody gave up.
And so came the day where they can show off the results of their training.
There were reinforcements that arrived just before the last line of defense fell.
Despite the commander's words that it was too late, they calmly took their weapons
and headed into battle.
Under the dark sky of sunset, a counterattack had begun. A fire that was brighter than
a rising star lit up the sky. Soldiers kneeling down helplessly with an empty clip raised their hands.
The Wrecking Balls, who wielded powerful weapons that others couldn't hope to lift,
was the hero that everyone was waiting for.
They were powerful and trustworthy and had no mercy towards the enemy.
The eyes of the soldiers filled with hope. Exhausted officers regained their courage.
Amidst the personnel moving to their positions, someone started to shout.
This war is not over yet!
As long as we have the Destroyers annihilating all enemies in our path,
we shall rise again and fight once more.
The Wrecking Ball must first reach level 75.

- M-137 Gatling Gun - Modeled after the M-134 Minigun.
