Legs. The guardian has six legs, which resemble white metal links that are flexible enough to climb. Each leg has an AC of 15, 10 hit points, and vulnerability to radiant damage. Damage dealt to the legs deals the same damage to the guardian. When a leg is destroyed, the guardian must succeed on a Constitution saving throw with a DC of 5 + the damage taken or be stunned until the start of its next turn. When two legs are destroyed, the guardian's walking and climbing speeds are reduced by 10 feet. When three legs are destroyed, its climbing speed is lost and the guardian loses its Spider Climb feature. When four legs are destroyed, the guardian's walking speed is reduced by an additional 10 feet. When the guardian loses five legs, its speed is reduced to 5 feet. When the guardian has no legs left it falls prone and its speed is reduced to 0 feet and it can't benefit from bonuses to speed.

Spider Climb. The guardian can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.

Weak Point. Any attacks made against the guardian's eye bypass its immunity to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage. Any attack roll made as a called shot, such as against this weak point, is normally made with disadvantage.


Energy Cannon. The guardian shoots a beam at a point within 60 feet of it. Each creature within 5 feet of the point must make a DC 20 Dexterity saving throw, taking 16 (3d10) radiant damage and 16 (3d10) force damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Each creature within 10 feet of the point must make a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw, taking 16 (3d10) force damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

A guardian stalker has six segmented legs which support its main body and most dangerous weapon: its single eye, which can fire a deadly beam of energy. These legs can be damaged and destroyed, leaving the construct immobile and vulnerable. Numerous ancient materials can be recovered from destroyed guardians, which can be used by researchers to create powerful gear.

Variant: Guardian Turret[edit]

Some guardians are constructed without legs and deployed in stationary positions to guard important locations. Though a guardian turret is incapable of movement, the effectiveness of its laser isn't reduced. A guardian turret has a speed of 0 feet, no climbing speed and can't benefit from any bonuses to its speed, cannot be knocked prone, doesn't have the Legs or Spider Climb trait and has the following trait:

Immobile. The guardian cannot be moved in any way other than teleportation.
