Universe At War

Novus Constructor


The Constructor is the primary Novus builder. It creates structures by spraying nanites towards the build site. These nanites are able to then construct the building in question. The stream needs to remain constant in order to fully build a structure. Up to three Constructors may participate to increase build speed. This unit has no attack. Instead, it can repair units and structures. Doing so costs resources. Constructors are immune to mind control and Amplifier lockdown.
