In and out under extreme duress, the Firbolg handles lightning fast infiltrations/extractions and lazy picked duty with equal aplomb.

The Firbolg is a Grineer unarmed shuttle that drops platoons of soldiers on the Plains of Eidolon.


Tactics[]

  • While Firbolgs do not pose a threat by themselves, their noisy punch-in warns about the incoming Grineer troopers that are perched atop their hull.
  • Passengers can be shot down individually, since they sit outside the hull desant-style, leaving them exposed to attack. This will count as a stealth kill.
  • Destroying a Firbolg before it reaches its dropoff point will kill any passengers who have not started their dismounting animation. Passengers killed this way will count toward any relevant bounty objectives (such as the Control Level in Liberation) but will not yield any affinity or drops.

Trivia[]

  • Non-interactive Firbolgs are present on many tilesets, indicating their widespread use for a variety of purposes. For example, they evacuate Capture and Defection targets on Grineer tilesets, and are seen being used to resupply the Kuva Fortress during The War Within quest.
  • Keeping with the theme of Grineer space vehicles having names from Irish mythology, these dropships take their name from the mythical Firbolg people of Ireland.
  • The Official Cinematic Trailer reveals that the Grineer used Orokin variants of the Firbolgs and Bolkors during the Old War.
