Lieutenant haster var1

A Haster from Onslaught.

Hasters were strange Quantum Lieutenants found on Zelem's Nexus. They had the ability to speed up time for their allies.

Lore

Hasters alter the time stream surrounding themselves and their allies, speeding themselves up and therefore, in effect, slowing down their foes' movement and attacks. With high-speed projectiles, hasters can wound their sluggish foes from safe distances.

Strategy

They could speed up their allies, hasting their movement and attack speed. This could be very annoying, as they sped up already-speedy enemies, such as Sting Raiders or Strafing Drakons, making them even speedier. They also had a ranged attack, but the attack dealt generally moderate damage, making them easy targets when alone.

  • Onslaught Variant: Haster
  • Invasion Variant: Time Haster

Using Blitz or Vex against them was a good idea, as teleporting to them prevented them from hasting more allies, plus getting the advantage of being able to kill them faster with a higher attack rate.

Another good idea was to use pets, as while you retreat, they would still be attacking the Haster.

Trivia

  • Hasters had some of the same features as certain heroes. They appeared to have the same parts that make up Skar's head and Sage's gun. Also, their ability to speed up time was similiar to Orion's abilities.

    Offical concept art.

  • Before their official name was revealed, the Hasters were called "Temporal Twisters", likely as a reference to their hasting abilities.
  • Hasters were technically tripods because their other hand is a foot.
  • The concept art of a Haster showed that its weapon is located on the left arm, as for the game, its weapon was on its right arm.
