GUARD ROBOT (WOLFENSTEIN)
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
Guard Robots (German: Wachroboter) are large mechs used by the Nazis in the 1960’s. They are heavily armoured but slow moving.
The development of advanced mechanized war units was one of General Deathshead’s major contributions to winning the war. When the war was over, many of these units were redesigned to function as guard units that could be easily transported to where they were needed. These robots are easily transportable, and can fit into many tight spaces, from being stored in special trucks when not in use, to being able to squeeze into a broad-gauge passenger train as security for high-ranking Nazi Officials. This ease of mobility is also matched by this unit’s destructive fire-power stemming from its heavy laser blaster and its power-sapping EMP cannon.
In 1961, The Guard Robot has been replaced in general service in some regions (for example in the American Territories) by the Über Soldat robot; this appears to have been done to free them up for service in the ongoing war in Africa.
