This bot got me from S-1 to P-5. During this solo journey I had only lost 2 league battles out of at least 30, majority of which I had top score. This beast is capable of capturing towers very easily, healing allies during emergencies and dishing out decent firepower against various types of hostile bots, including Laser Drones.
13 Tornado Hover Blades are enough to support the tough & heavy chassis, yet giving it a stunning top speed of 181MPH at OC1, 203MPH at OC4 & 225MPH at OC15.
4 Puma Thrusters & 4 Cheetah Thrusters provide decent forward acceleration and to support hill climbing.
7 Disintegrator Top Lasers give decent damage at any directions. 3 on top, all far apart, and 2 on each sides.
3 Constructor Nanos provide quick healing to get teammates into action quickly.
Able to climb hills.
Great for 1v1 fights.
OK-OK against Laser Drones.
Triforced (Hovers, Weapons, "Cockpit" & a few other areas)
Rodforced (Hovers, Weapons, middle 2 Thrusters & the centre)
Effective placement of Hovers.
Only 1 Hover is fully-exposed - the bottom rear one (But no one is able to destroy that easily).
All Thrusters exposed.
Weak against Plasma Drones.
Rare (but possible) scenarios where the front and middle Hovers are destroyed, resulting in loss of movement control.
Pilots should know exactly when to heal & when not to heal, depending on combat scenarios.
NEVER execute sharp U-turns.
7 hardpoints for Holoflags.
1 hardpoint for League Badge.
The Barracuda has quite a history of changes.
I actually made it to P-5 on 21st April, but because of school, I couldn't publish in time.
I have LOTS & LOTS of screenshots of the Barracuda as top score.
