The Irritator is a combat support vehicle used by Haihead to disrupt enemy formations, turning them against each other with its confusion rays, or marking enemies with illumination flares that makes them more vulnerable to attacks.

Description

The Irritator is an odd addition to Haihead’s arsenal. This eight-wheeler is mounted with an experimental weapon, initially tested at the Last Bastion, that could turn enemies against each other. It was half-jokingly called the "confusion ray", but it lives up to its name: it confused the enemy as to who the real threat is, thus resulting in a friendly fire scenario where Haihead’s enemies are ‘confused’ to think their allies are actually their foes.

If this isn’t enough to irk an enemy commander as his troops turn against each other, the Irritator can be deployed to arm its illumination flare launcher that is capable of firing flares at long distances. Wherever the flare detonates, all enemy units close to the flare’s detonation will be revealed, making it easier for Foehn troops to target and eliminate them.

The Irritator was designed primarily as a support unit, and thus does not have weapons of its own to defend itself. Also, due to the weight of both the confusion ray and flare launcher, the Irritator must remain stationary in order to use either support weapon.
