- "Powerful energy beam with auto tracking. (No ammo crate refills)"
- — Singleplayer description
After the player arrives on the Retribution, it can be equipped as a secondary weapon under an assigned Heavies slot. The Torch is useful for taking out groups of enemies, as well as destroying C12 tanks and C6 drones efficiently.
- "Heavy beam based weapon with multi-target tracking."
- — Description
In multiplayer, the Steel Dragon is the default 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 accuracy and overall speed of the beam.
The March 10th, 2017 patch increased the Steel Dragon's sprint out time, reducing the close-range capabilities of the Steel Dragon.
