The Galahad is a Medium Robot with 2 × light hardpoints and 1 × medium hardpoint all on the right side. This robot has a built-in physical shield which is placed on the robot’s left. Galahad’s special ability lets it switch shield mode, moving it from the side to the front, just like a medieval knight. When the shield is in front, the robot’s movement speed is decreased by twenty percent (20%).
The Galahad’s high speed and physical shield makes for a great beacon runner with the shield on it’s side,as well as allowing it to close to the thick of battle. It’s shield is reasonable when upgraded and being maneuverable when deployed allows you to avoid damage from multiple robots at close range, unlike a Rhino. That said, sustained fire from multiple ECC Thunders or Plasma will break it quickly, so its advised to still use cover and perform corner shooting.
On maps like Shenzhen one can easily move quickly towards the beacon while the shield protects you from the left side, which makes it function very much alike an Ecu. Very strong close range setups include 2 Magnums, Pinatas, or Aphids for the light spots. For the medium hardpoints, an Orkan or a Taran work very well.
Overall, it is key that the pilot must use their shield wisely in order to correctly approach or attack enemies.
