The Mgalekgolo Captain is exclusive to "Colony" and can be built at the War Council. Like other hero units the player is limited to one on the field at a time. They have immense durability at the cost of mobility, making them one of the slowest units in the game. Captains feature the Siphon ability to steal health from enemies and are able to agro enemies away from allied units. In Blitz Hunter Captains cost 260 energy and feature the Shock ability to decrease enemy armor, in addition to its normal energy shielding, passive Siphon ability, and Taunt ability.
