Defender is a Boost Card unique to the Heavy class that unlocks when the class reaches level 2. The card gives players a small amount of extra score per hit taken, which in turn gives them extra Battle Points that can be used to purchase Reinforcements in-game.
As the Heavy class has the largest health pool in the game with 200 health points, Heavy troopers are able to take more damage before being eliminated, particularly from blaster bolts. Defender encourages Heavy troopers to draw fire from enemies while laying down their own fire, whether that be via their primary weapon or their Sentry ability.
