This Hulkbuster Armor was deployed by Iron Man to intercept the Hulk at Wundagore Mountain in an attempt to stop him from reaching a Stark tech armory where Project A.R.K. was stored. Despite his best effort, and the use of three other copies of the armor as support, Iron Man was defeated by the Hulk, and Banner reached Project A.R.K.
Although this Hulkbuster Armor ultimately failed to defeat the Hulk, it can be presumed it possesses enough physical strength to go toe-to-toe against the monster. The suit's weaponry included wrist-mounted repulsor beams and a shrapnel missile of Adamantium nanoparticles, which could pierce and burrow into the Hulk's skin. Their nano-programming forged the Adamantium at an atomic level, shaping the shrapnel into any shape the armor's user could want. This allowed the shrapnel to ensnare the Hulk into the ground, forcing to tear off his own arm to break free.
