Units are the individuals who take the form of the wavy armed warriors that battle with low-polygon rendering in TABS. They are colored to match their team (red or blue), save for their unique headgear, clothing, weapons, and other items. Every unit has its own set of abilities which it can use. Each unit can be either a melee, a support, or a ranged unit.
They have a relatively simple AI system. Although AI is considered quite "basic" in the Open and Closed Alpha, Landfall has redeveloped and innovated their AI for the Early Access release of TABS. The "New" AI has been showcased in the Closed Beta. They are special soldiers, whom you place before on the map before battle.
Each Unit has their own unique AI which determines its behavior in combat (for instance, the ranged units go to a certain distance before firing and the melee units will take the straightest path possible to their target). Certain units have the ability to dodge or parry, while others can charge into melee range. These abilities and behaviors should be considered when selecting and deploying your units, as they can have a major impact on the game. Currently, units are controllable.
Units can have minor variations between them that are randomly generated, mostly for aesthetics. Some of the changes include:
- Slightly taller/short units.
- Units with large/small body parts.
- Units with large/small pupils/eyes, sometimes one large/small than the other.
- Cyclops units (rare).
- Multiple eyed units (more than 2 eyes) (very rare).
- Units with 2 or more pupils in the eye (incredibly rare).
- Giant/tiny units (very rare).
- Fat/Skinny units (rare).
- Two of these variations (depends on the variations).
- Three of these variations (depends on the variations).
Units will always have googly eyes as long as they remain set to on in the options menu. Units also get X's on their eyes when they are dead, with some units they will show >< on their face when damaged, and normally they blink --. All things in TABS can have variation, like Clams from the CLAMS man, or birds from the Scarecrow. The Snake Archer's bow can also have eye variations.
Main article: Factions
There will be a reasonably large amount of units. Each one is placed into one of the several factions that depict different time periods- Tribal, Farmer, Medieval, Ancient, Viking, Dynasty, Renaissance, Pirate, Spooky, and more. These begin from just mere cavemen, but evolve to powerful, laser-welding superhumans. Each faction has about seven units, typically including a melee infantry unit, a ranged unit, a heavy unit, and a boss unit. Some factions will also have support or artillery units as well.
There are about 70 planned units planned for the full game, not including the secret units. (Currently, there are 77 units not including the secret faction.) there will soon be legacy.
Most of the units are unlocked in the game from the beginning, but there is an exception for the Secret Faction. To unlock such a unit, the person must go to Free Camera Mode and search around for a weapon, or for a similar item.
Note: This is a general overview of the units, each of which has its own page. The links to those pages are listed below. All of the units are either a melee, ranged, or an artillery unit. Each unit is unique. There are no units with the same armor and weapons.
Note: The information in the unreleased section may be outdated. It may be advised to check the Units tab at the bottom to see upcoming units.
