Player description and analysis Edit

Pillbug, AKA "The War Machine" is the most powerful bug hero in the game. Heavy firepower, high armor, low mobility and an array of high damage abilities, Pillbug is useful to hold position and mass army battles, he can pin down enemy creeps like ragdolls.

Despite being stationary before firing, he can deal armored bugs with piercing rounds and smaller hordes with his explosive rounds, he also hunker down to gain damage and armor piercing by 25, and when he gets in melee combat, he activated his hardened shell to repel melee enemies like fleas and gnats.

His greatest downside however, he is the worst scouter and his gun cannot fire while moving until stationary, and he is too slow to move even pairing with any hero. He is the most versatile DPS character in the Bug Heroes world.
