Terminator T-800 has an appearance that resembles to its recent portrayal in upcoming live-action movie Terminator: Dark Fate. It makes a similar entry like it did in Terminator 2: Judgment Day when it came to save John Connor.

T-800 displays its unique ability to use short-distance portals in a confrontation with Kano and then completely loses skin when Scorpion spews fire on it, revealing a much tougher robotic skeleton underneath synthetic molten flesh.

Upon triggering Krushing Blow, it would shoot player in the guts after hitting you with the weapon and awkwardly show a thumbs up but would grab by the legs in mid-air while mockingly saying "GET OVER HERE!" and finish up.

They leave behind the snowy landscape when entering to neighborhood of Seattle, where her surroundings are covered in green. This is where things start going topsy turvy and she had to take a stand against a ruthless enemy group.

Another latest aspect of her movement is crawling ability that gives her an edge for stealth, allowing her to quickly get out of enemy sight. However, enemies use trained guard dog to sniff you out and track down even if you are hiding.
