Lifeless Growls

Plasma Mech added 1 year ago

Still riding the mech leg high, I am introducing my new Mech plasma bot: Lifeless Growls. I like to upload builds that make me proud. I have mixed feelings about this robot. It is too successful to pass up though, so I am sharing it with you.

This mech is designed to take full advantage of the jumping mechanic included in mech legs. The best way to use this bot is to select your target carefully, hide at the back of the team, jump and fire. If done correctly, this technique will quickly chisel away at the enemy team, crippling robots.

As you may have seen, this tactic is hard to counter.

I made several design choices to make this robot a better mortar build:

-Guns are aligned to be as compact as possible without interfering with each other
-I used many smaller EPs instead of a few big EPs. This was done to reduce damage from sniper fire.
-Shields doubled up at the front of the robot.
-All guns placed on top of the robot, instead of mixing top-bottom or top-side. This way, all guns fire towards the same target.
-Made the robot as small as possible.

Because this is a mech, it is pretty slow at ~69MPH in TDM.

Bombers and snipers are a big threat to robot like this, as they are already using similar hit-and-run techniques. Bombers can quickly destroy this robot.

This is not a front-lines soldier by any means. SMGs that get close will have sufficient firepower to overwhelm this robot.

The guns are also a cause for concern. By placing all of the guns on the top of the bot, it has a very limited firing cone, favouring distant or elevated targets. It can not shoot down hills.

At the end of the day, this robot is very effective. The jumping mechanic gives it an unfair advantage. I don't like to brag, but this build usually has the highest score on any team I play in TDM. Mostly because the rest of the team is distracting the enemy, doing all the hard work, while this robot hides.

If you need to farm RP but can't afford a Megabot yet, I would recommend a build like this (Or a gunbed or a medic).

Available in the CRF until November 23 2015.

TLDR; Long-range mortar cannon, not suitable for close encounters.

nice support bot right there, truly is great for duck and cover fire
Good gun placement and armoring in the case you get shot mid jump by a waiting rail
