In-Game Description
"Giant insects living deep underground. There's no risk to watch them but they will assault you if you destroy their habitat."

The Giant Caterpillar is one of the Super-Rare Units of the "Independent" faction in Metal Slug Attack. Parts can be obtained through the Guild Store and the occasional Independent-only Event Crank.

A very large caterpillar, the Giant Caterpillar has plenty of health. Its stampede attack can deal massive damage, while its ranged attack shoots out spores from its mouth. The stampede attack can decrease the attack speed of units it hits when MSA Skill small + 1 is unlocked.

Should the caterpillar be killed and MSA Skill small + 4 is unlocked, it will explode and release numerous maggots, which have stun capability.

When placed in a deck with its mini version, they form the "March of Caterpillar" team, lowering their AP costs by 10%.

  • MSA Skill small + 1: decreases the enemies' speed when they are hit by the attack.

Usage

The Giant Caterpillar is one formidable unit tank, due to its cheaper AP cost of 500 unlike other tank units. Its stun capability is very effective for other ally units to help wipe out nearby enemy units.

Encountered

It is encountered in a Player or NPC's deck, but it is also encountered in some of stages of the Extra Ops: Invader Girl and Mutation War.
