Special Abilities

Advance Hyper-Alloy combat chassis (Ex): The skeletal structure of the T-700 is constructed of a special alloy, making it very strong and resistant to damage. The alloy is also heavier and as such the unit is slowed because of this.  As a result, the unit gains a DR equal to its CR+4 against all physical attacks. Furthermore, the T-700 gains a +4 to all Fort saves.

Detailed anatomy files (Ex): The Terminator has detailed files of humanoid anatomy. As a result, it automatically gains a damage bonus equal to half the Terminators CR rating (rounded down). Also anytime the Terminator gains a critical hit, any DC save increases by +2.

Will not stop (Ex): When the T-700 reaches zero hit points, it automatically ‘heals’ 20 points of damage on its next turn. This will only occur if the T-700 is under Skynet’s control, otherwise the T-700 does not gain any benefit from this. This allows the T-700 to continue to fight, although this can only be used once. After the additional hit points have been lost, the T-700 is destroyed.


The predecessor to the T-800 Infiltration unit, the T-700 is taller and weighs significantly more than the T-800. This particular unit stands at 7 feet in height, and weighs 550 pounds. The unit uses a heavier version of the Hyper-Alloy combat chassis. This was abandoned by Skynet when constructing future models, as the advantage it provided with damage resistance was offset by the resources required, and the loss of speed.  This also explains the dark gray coloration of the endoskeleton.

Although the T-700 is built along the standard endoskeleton, it appears more primitive, even brutish. It is slow-moving and almost appears to be sluggish, but unlike previous models, and even some of the later models like the T-800, the unit is able to soak up more damage and can continue to fight even if it has been blown apart.

Unlike the later models, the T-700 is not self-aware, and runs on a rather primitive AI, which was still used in the older T-600 models. It needs to be given specific orders, or it will fall back on the basic programming of search and destroy.

Also, these particular models typically used weapons scavenged from the resistance forces they encountered, or would move up and literally get ‘physical’ with the enemy targets, punching and smashing quite effectively.

Even after the advent of the T-800 and later models, these were still being constructed and deployed to the battlefield, thanks to their sheer toughness in combat.
