The Loyalists are a royal legion of Cabal who serve Emperor Calus onboard The Leviathan. Since the recent assault by the Red Legion, they have since and recovered over time and increased their defensive capabilities. They can be identified by their heavily reinforced gold-clad armor, imperial crests on their shoulder pads, and polished helmets.

Unique Forces[edit]

The heavy golden armor worn by the Loyalists slows them down to a crawl and are particularly vulnerable to headshots, which can stun them and deal high bonus damage.

Each unit also comes in different tiers with varying combat behaviors.
