In-Game Description
"METAL REAR ver. Expedition
It is equipped with several functions for survival because it is thrown into a lot of manoeuvres of extreme regions.It is obviously still nimble."
Metal Rear EX MSA idle

The Metal Rear EX is a playable unit in Metal Slug Attack, first appearing in the Extra Ops titled Wild Edge.

A Metal Rear specially designed for difficult environments, it shares a similar moveset to the original, but reversed; it uses its vulcans as a short range attack while using its cannon over longer distances.

The Metal Rear EX has a counterattack, much like the Augensterm Ver(P.M). If an attack would cause it to be knocked back, the Metal Rear EX will retaliate back with the standard Metal Rear's special attack. Until MSA Skill small + 4 is unlocked, using the Metal Rear EX's special attack is not recommended, since it will move even slower and cannot counterattack, making it vulnerable to enemy fire. With MSA Skill small + 4 unlocked, the Metal Rear's special attack is enhanced to that of a Formor, making a massive leap that covers a wide range (and deals additional hits), stopping prematurely if an enemy ground unit is in its way.

When placed in a deck with the Ptolemaic Slug EX, they form the "Ver.expedition" team, reducing their AP costs by 10%. The Metal Rear EX also boosts the damage of the Ptolemaic Rear EX if MSA Skill small + 1 is unlocked.

Attacks

Short Range

Attribute grenade Heavy Vulcan (Spread) - Fires its vulcan cannon.

Long Range

Attribute fire Cannon (Spread) - Shoots three fiery cannonballs at the enemy.

Special

Attribute grenade Squashing (Spread) - Rears up, moving to the frontline before smashing enemies in front of it with its tracks. If MSA Skill small + 4 is unlocked, performs a massive leap that covers a wide range, and will stop prematurely if an enemy ground unit is in its way.

Counter

Attribute grenade Heavy Vulcan Strafe (Spread) - Any attacks that would cause the Metal Rear EX to be knocked back is countered by jumping backwards while firing its vulcan cannon simultaneously.
