First things first, this is a light bot. It moves fast (~220 at OC 13) and strikes hard. You have the luxury of picking your fights and you should use discretion when tackling a tankier build solo.
The bot isn't made of glass though. The front shielding lets it hold up to some heavy plasma and SMG fire but be wary of rails. I consistently survive 2-3 railgun shots before dying or limping back to the base. Clever maneuvering can allow the mega SMGs to be used as shields in an escape.
The bot handles anti air well and its exceptional firepower and maneuverability allows it to dodge plasma volleys and destroy the source.
The speed and damage combine into a bot that offers lots of map control. I mostly zip along the front lines, grabbing assists, defending towers, and tipping the scales in team fights.
Don't forget to retreat if damaged. You're hardly an asset without your mega SMGs, so stay topped of by doing swings past the base or the medics.
The rudders are not necessary but offer midair control (so you can keep all guns on target) and on point turning. They make going in reverse unresponsive but victory is achieved by moving forward!
