In multiplayer, the Steel Dragon is a payload for Merc. It is advised to take it out when facing more than just one player at a time, as it's stopping power might not be enough to take out the enemy in time. Instead, it should be advised to take it out on a group of two to four player as its multi-target tracking ability will make use of it's powerful accuarcy and overall speed of the beam.
