How To Play Squats in Necromunda

The clock has chimed. Squats have come back to roost. Take a look at their rules.

Necromunda is a hive of scum and villainy–but more so these days with the new Hired Guns who have just made their services available. Gracing the pages of Gang War 2 you’ll find deadly hunters of all shapes. And sizes. Including a return of one of the galaxy’s most rumored races:

Grendl Grendlsen makes his home in Hive Primus. And while there’s only one of him, it’s like the saying goes, for every Squat you see, there’s a hundred more you don’t. Pretty sure that’s a saying and how it goes.

But from the one we see, we can learn much–like that there’s a contingent of squats (or at least there was) called the Vega Rams.

But you didn’t come here to learn why Squats, or even what Squats–you came here to learn how to Squats. Well, let me tell you, this sanctioned bounty hunter is pretty fearsome. His boltgun and trusty hammer are ready your disposal.


And as you can see from his card, he comes with a pretty sweet set of skills and gear–combat master and iron jaw play very well with the armour, making Grndl a pretty deadly force who’ll consistently soak up the enemy’s return fire, at least for a few rounds before he has to start worrying. Tough and scrappy, Grendl is more of a brawler than a blaster–but hire him on if you want someone who’ll get the job done.

The other way to play Squats is to carefully bend your legs then spring upwards when a shout.
