Grinder MK V
Feeling nostalgic I had decided to browse through my earliest robocraft screenshots.
I decided to rebuild this; one of the first bots made after I finished spending time following a guide (due to struggling upon first joining) and wanting to make my own "improved and original version".
Just for the record, the original screenshot was taken 13/9/15 and my remake created 6/9/15.
As I sadly only have the one screenshot leftover from the original build this isn't a perfect replica, but I tried my best: Cube count is matched and no triforcing (even prisms under pilot) was used.
When it came to weapons I was pleased to discover that while lacking in redundancy, having them spread out allows me to keep firepower even after taking sustained damage.
Wheel placement allows me to drive normally with only 2 wheels left depending on which.
The bot moves much like a slightly slower version of the old cruisers from before "Respawned and Overclocked" and can climb steeper slopes than most (Image 4, not sure if hollow bottom helps).
I do not have any problems with wheelies.
In terms of performance and playstyle with this bot I prefer to ambush enemies and pick my fights.
With only 41K RR it's common to face robots made up of either low cpu or undertiered armor and as such can make quick work of them.
Cube counts are estimates as per usual.
The screenshots show the bot in various situations to allow others to both get a better idea of how it works and to copy if they so wish.
