In-Game Description
"Hired by the town, he's a man who came to be known as the ghost killer. The many weapons in his coat are effective against things that are not human."

Vatn is a unit original to Metal Slug Attack, first appearing in the Extra Ops titled Halloween Train (as a pre-acquisition unit, obtained by purchasing 10,000 medals). He serves as an expy of Van Helsing.

As a standard melee attack, Vatn equips a drill on his gun, dealing rapid melee damage. Unfortunately, this requires the enemy to be very close to him, or he will use his ranged attack instead. He fires his Gatling gun at enemies away from him, dealing less damage but shoots many bullets. With MSA Skill small + 3, he will shoot more per attack. Vatn's greatest selling point are his deployable mortars. These mortars are invulnerable to enemy attacks, cover a wide range, and deals decent damage (with high resistance lowering).

Setting them up with "Reload" can make multiple mortars in rapid succession, resulting in a flurry of mortar shells. Two or more mortars hitting an unshielded enemy can cause havoc on them, as they will be continually knocked back while taking damage in the process. They are especially notorious for destroying enemy bases early game if the opponent does not place a unit to tank the incoming mortars.

Vatn has the ability to evade attacks when MSA Skill small + 4 is unlocked. When triggered, he uses his cloak to vanish and reappear a short distance away. It is useful for helping him to survive longer so he can deploy more mortars.

If Vatn is defeated, he will grab a bomb from his coat and ignite it as a parting gift. Upon exploding, a medium-sized projectile will fly in a smaller arc, dealing massive damage to enemies hit by it.

A 15% AP cost discount applies to Vatn if placed in a deck with Emain Macha and the Subway, as part of the "Halloween Train" team bonus.

Attacks

Short Range

Attribute pistol Drill (Spread) - Projects a spinning blade from the barrel of his gatling gun, dealing rapid melee damage.

Long Range

Attribute pistol Rapid-Fire Gatling (Spread) - Fires a long line of rapid shots. More shots are fired with MSA Skill small + 3 unlocked.

Special

Attribute grenade Auto Mortar Install (Single) - Places an automated mortar unit. It cannot be attacked, and fires ten shots before exploding.

Note: If an attack causes Vatn to be knocked back (or evasion triggers with MSA Skill small + 4) while he places the mortar, the mortar will not be placed. The special attack bar will still be consumed.

Suicide

Attribute grenade Bomb (Spread) - Reveals a bomb which then explodes, dealing a single, moderate damage hit on unfortunate enemies.
