Special Abilities

Deadly Aim (Ex): The creature can take a -2 penalty to any attack it makes, and will gain a bonus of +6 to damage inflicted.

Tail Sweep (Ex): As a full-round action, the creature can ‘sweep’ an area with its massive tail. This is treated like a 30 ft. cone for area of effect. Anyone caught in the cone must make a Reflex save (DC 16) or take 2d10+18 B damage and automatically be knocked prone. Those who make the save do not take any damage.

Trample (Ex): As a full-round action, the creature can move up to twice its speed and literally run over any opponents at least one size category smaller than itself. The creature merely has to move over the opponents in its path. The creature does not need to make an attack roll; each creature whose space it moves through takes damage. A target of a trample can make a REF save (DC 16) for half damage. If it attempts the save, it can’t make an attack of opportunity against the trampling creature due to the creature’s movement. The creature can deal trample damage to a given target only once per round.

 

Like the majority of the augmented dinosaurs, this particular beast has been upgraded with an implant, giving it more intelligence than its un-augmented brethren. This creature also has been modified with a pair of built-in weapon systems, both anchored on the left and right side of the neck, just below the jawline. It can fire one or the other, but more often than not will use the Grenade launcher. The typical load-out for the grenade launcher is a combination of fragmentation and incendiary, but this can be easily changed depending on the mission parameters. The creature has also had its feet modified, allowing for greater damage when it decides it will stomp on the enemy. Thanks to the length of its neck, it can often use this to literally get behind enemy defenses in order to open fire, often taking the enemy by surprise.
