A Brig is a unique class of war machines used by the Fallen. It first made its debut through Insurrection Prime, who was used to invade the Last City and break into the Black Armory for the Kell's Scourge.
Sometime after the death of their leader, former members of the Scourge joined the House of Salvation and shared their innovation for mass production. Brigs feature prominently across Europa and these new models have engine cores similar to Fallen Walkers.
During a secret incursion to occupy a desolate district of the Last City, the Kell's Scourge stole phase technology from the Black Armory's vault and integrated it with their own Fallen technology by kitbashing a Walker mech and a Prime Servitor together to create the war machine Insurrection Prime as the first of its kind.
Following a few years since Insurrection Prime's appearance and rampage, inferior but mass-produced copies of it began appearing under the banner of Eramis, the newly proclaimed Kell of Darkness. Identified as Brigs, they were sourced from remnants of the Kell’s Scourge syndicate who had joined Eramis’s House Salvation. The majority of these war mechs appear to be smaller versions in comparison to Insurrection Prime. The smaller versions of these war machines are labeled Brigs while the much larger variants - similar in size to Insurrection Prime - are labelled Commodores.
Some time following Eramis's incapacitation and the deaths of her Dark Council members, Brigs began to appear in the hands of the House of Dusk elsewhere in the system, presumably sourced by defectors from the decapitated House of Salvation. [note 1]
Brigs are a dangerous and challenging opponent to face on the battlefield, both with their high durability and arsenal of weapons to hammer Guardians with. They are equipped with the same weapons as the Insurrection Prime; a pair of front-mounted Arc turrets, an arm cannon that fires Void blasts, a retractable launcher to bombard players with volleys of missiles from above and an Annihilation Blaster mounted on the other side, which can deal tremendous Solar damage and can potentially kill a Guardian in a single hit.
They will stride around, firing on players with their Arc turrets while occasionally using either their Void cannon or airstrike missiles, but when they lose a significant portion of their health, their face plate will blow off, exposing their engine core weak point. In this state they will hover stationary in the air while firing repeatedly with their Annihilation Blaster until either they or their target has been killed. There are two variants of Brigs. Those with right arm mounted cannons and those without. The one's without said cannons constantly have their retractable launchers deployed and almost exclusively attack via missile bombardments. These brigs also feature a different set of lights/sensors along their frontal plate with one large sensor and four smaller one's instead of six equally sized.
