The particular version of the unit being added to the game will be the MS Unit XXXG-01H2 Gundam Heavyarms Custom [EW] from the Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz movie. It is an upgraded version of the original Heavyarms piloted by Trowa Barton in the Gundam Wing TV series.

Check out a preview of the Heavyarms Custom [EW] in Gundam Evolution Season 3 Update.

The preview shows that the Heavyarms Custom [EW] skillset will focus on high attack and mobility. It will have a Double Gatling Gun with infinite ammo and an overheat cap as its main weapon. The iconic Moonsault will also be added as a skill to move swiftly across the map.

Its G-maneuver ultimate attack will be a Hatch Full Open barrage. While active, the Heavyarms will storm the enemies with missiles while hovering in the air for a few seconds.

In February, Gundam Evolution developers announced that three new mobile suits would be released monthly throughout Season 3. The Heavyarms Custom [EW] is the second of the batch, previously followed by Gundam SEED’s Hyperion.

More information on the “Ignition” update will be shared during the Mission Briefing stream on March 3, 2023 at 10pm PT/1am ET.

The Heavyarms Custom [EW] joins Gundam Evolution when Season 3 Ignition update debuts on March 8, 2023. The game is available on the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.
