The Dreamsnare is a specialist Warstrider variant which carries an energy shield boosting relay device, improving the effectiveness of passive countermeasures on all nearby Shaltari units. This makes it an excellent support unit for the nucleus of any Shaltari Warhost. Tactically adept Shaltari Warchiefs can use modest numbers of Dreamsnares to maximum effect by rapidly relocating them to flashpoints where the fighting is fiercest.
The Dreamsnare is also armed with a pair of twin, long-barrelled Microwave Cannons (an arrangement known as the Dragon Canon), giving it exceptional anti-infantry firepower. This configuration supports Warstrider groups effectively, since Jaguars, Ocelots and Coyotes do not carry specialized anti-infantry weapons. The Dreamsnare can also concentrate all four of these formidable weapons onto a single target, delivering such energy that it can boil crews inside armored vehicles, obliterate electronics and fuse moving parts into lumps of inanimate matter. This gives it powerful (albeit short ranged) anti-armor firepower.
