Ratchet

Medic Cruiser added 1 month ago

So this is the third robot I have uploaded in a row. Sorry if my spamming of bots is getting irritated, but nobody uploaded for a week straight and I'm pretty proud of this one.

Just like it's inspiration and namesake, Ratchet is a medic and not designed for frontline combat as it does not have the gun redundancy of a dedicated fighter. It does, however, have a very durable chassis which uses some damage redistribution techniques to ensure the wheels stay on no matter what unless directly shot at. The plasmas give it defence against enemy vehicles, allowing it to do it's bit in battle as well as focus on it's main attribute of healing. It can easily be converted into a dedicated medic or plasma car by just swapping out the weapons, and is good in both roles if you want it to suit a specific playstyle rather than merging the two.

Pros
Tough. Can survive a good beating before going down.
Can fight back if it has to.
Can be easily converted into a dedicated battlecar or medic just by swapping guns.
Decently quick.
Power module included for quick reloads.
Can drive around at very low health.
Works great if you have a friend playing a tank or brawler robot. Can offer supporting fire and healing at the same time.


Cons
Bad gun redundancy. Shouldn't engage in prolonged combat. If you have to fight, fight at longer range, with a teammate or as an assassin. Always land that first volley.
Sucks with camera controls, as do most cars
Can't heal backwards effectively. All the nanos are at the front.
Tier 3 nanos. They do the job but I had to use them as there was no space for tier 4s, and using T4s would have sacrificed durability and CPU due to the space required.
Despite the name and inspiration, it's not actually a transformer.

Name on the shop is "Ratchet TF" for anyone interested in taking it for a spin. Enjoy :)
