In-Game Description
"Sand submarine developed by the Ptolemaic Army. She indeed submerges. Just there is no occasion."
Sandmarine

The Sand Marine is a unit in Metal Slug Attack, first appearing during the Extra Ops titled 'Sand Locker'. Parts and items are currently available through the Independent faction's second Another Story.

It primarily attacks by blasting homing energy balls at the enemy. At close range, it switches to its frontal cannon. Its special rains down a deluge of falling bombs from the sky, which are very effective at wiping out aerial units such as the Golden Hunter Walker or The Keesi III.

When placed in the same deck with the Metal Rear and Stone Turtle, they form the "Ptolemaic Weapons" team, lowering their AP costs by 15%.

Attacks

Short Range

Attribute grenade (Spread) - Fires three large bombs from its front cannon at the closest enemies.

Long Range

Attribute grenade Energy Ball - Fires four long-range homing energy balls.

Special Attack

Attribute grenade Bomb release - Rains down a volley of falling bombs from the sky. Having MSA Skill small + 4 unlocked increases the number of shells.
