All the mobile suits and their abilities have been revealed for Gundam Evolution. In recent weeks, Bandai Namco has revealed so much about the game and who will be in this newly made Gundam game. This guide will let players know not only what are the playable units but also, their abilities and background as well.
In Gundam Evolution, there are a total of 17 playable units with their own skills and abilities that will make up a player’s style of fighting. According to the developers, there will be more playable units coming to the feature but for now, here are the mobile suits playable in Gundam Evolution:
RX-0 Unicorn Gundam
Main Weapon: Beam Gatling Gun
G-Maneuver: Beam Magnum
Active Skill #1: Psycho-field (Armor)
Active Skill #2: Shield Funnel
Passive Skill: Psycho-frame Resonance
Developed by Anaheim Electronics, this Gundam is one of the latest mobile suits to incorporate the Psycho-Frame technology to fend off Zeon remnants. Piloted by Banagher Links, this mobile suit combined with its psycho-waves resonates with the NT-D and becomes an unstoppable force. This version of the Unicorn is when it’s fully awakened. Whenever the NTD is activated, it usually glows in red but the sign of green glow signifies that the pilot’s Newtype abilities have fully synchronized with the mobile suit.
MS-06 Zaku II [Melee]
Main Weapon: Large Heat Hawk (Slash)
Sub Weapon: Guard Tackle
G-Maneuver: Large Hear Hawk (Rotating Slash)
Active Skill #1: Survive
Active Skill #2: Large Heat Hawk (Shockwave)
Active Skill #3: Zeon’s Rage
One of the mass-produced mobile suits developed by Zeon. This mobile suit is custom-made for Dozle Zabi, one of the lead figureheads of the Principality of Zeon who in his own right believes that those who carry the mantle of Zeon will lead them to a new era of the Universal Century. Unlike the normal Zaku II F-type, both of the Zaku II Dozle Zabi Custom’s shoulders are equipped with four spikes, while its hand armor has three spikes each.
The unique gold engraving on the mobile suit’s body was not Dozle’s idea, but rather the idea of the technical officer who customized the machine. Although it was originally intended for ceremonial use, Dozle went to the front lines in this machine on the pretext of inspecting the front lines and participated in actual combat with only a special large heat hawk.
One of the units featured in the Turn A Gundam series. This mobile suit is the mainstay unit of the Ghingham Fleet. Making its perfect mid-range type unit, it is equipped with a Mobile Trace system and uses artificial muscle fibers in its drive system. Powerful thrusters give the Mahiroo high mobility and atmospheric flight capabilities.

Later on, it was used Zeon Remnants to fight off the Londo Bell and the Earth Federation. During the events when the Unicorn was being used, several Marasai units were used by Zeon remnants to attack the Federation’s Torrington Base signifying that other Anaheim-developed units were scavenged and used by Zeon on Earth.

Its basic frame is easily adaptable to modifications into mission-specific GM models, and has a fairly high level of mobility, for the time, both on Earth and in space. It has a maximum acceleration of 0.94 Gs in space, which is better than the Gundam’s and roughly twice of the Zaku’s. On Earth’s surface, the GM is also faster than the Zaku II.
Main Weapon: Beam Spray Gun
G-Maneuver: Homing Mine
Active Skill #1: Shield Bash
Active Skill #2: Detonator Bomb
Active Skill #3: Repair Grenade
One of the 1st 3 mobile suits was developed successfully by the Earth Federation. Though it lacks mobility, it has a high defense and its weaponry is strong enough to take down incoming enemies.
The Guntank’s main weapons are twin 120mm cannons, which are effective at long and medium ranges. Its arms have four-barrel missile launchers instead of hands, and they provided good cover fire against enemy tanks and aircraft, but are less effective against enemy mobile suits. A major flaw of the Guntank is its inability to turn its torso, making it difficult to aim the cannons at moving targets, as the Guntank must reposition itself. Another major flaw is that its design was primarily for ground combat, resulting in it having poor maneuverability in space.
Main Weapon: Bop Missile
G-Maneuver: Launch Core Fighter
Active Skill #1: Rush
Active Skill #2: Cannon
Active Skill #3: High Speed Recovery
WD-M01 Turn A Gundam
A mysterious mobile suit was found within a statue known as the White Doll.

Main Weapon: Beam Rifle
G-Maneuver: Moonbeam Butterfly
Active Skill #1: Nanoskin
