Zeus

Game Description:

Zeus is an energy weapon. Deals tremendous damage at distances up to 600m and reloads rapidly. Target lock-on required to fire. Ignores Ancile shield.

The premier energy weapon before the arrival of Shocktrain, the Zeus is an energy-powered-homing-electric pulse of destruction. With a fabulous range of 600m coupled with a recharge time of only 5 seconds, once you target your enemy its lights out. Though for a bill of 1,500 gold, it better be!

The heavy-hardpoint Zeus requires a clear line of sight to hit its target and, while it lacks Splash damage, it does do a tremendous amount of damage even at lower levels. Its versatility makes it effective on knife-fighting units like Golem or Carnage, or longer-range setups on a Leo with Gekkos, Pinatas or even Magnums. Once leveled up, the Fury triple Zeus might be the most potent setup in the game, save the triple Shocktrain on a Dash bot.

Experienced pilots will keep a good range from their enemies to stay out of the 300m-500m ranged weapons while still maintaining their 600m sweet spot. If used properly, you can get off almost 11 shots per minute! As an Energy weapon, it can bypass both Energy and Ancile shields. The only downside of the Zeus is that it cannot penetrate physical shields. It can weaken shielded bots for sure, but it will take a few shots extra at minimum. That means be wary of a charging Rhino, Gareth, Galahad or Lancelot. Ecu also stop the Zeus but not for long. The Raijin is a great counter bot to the Zeus as it has a large shield life coupled with its heavy hardpoints’ ability to fire back at range with a host of sniping weapons (think Trident, Trebuchet, Zeus, etc).

According to Wiki and Greek history, the Zeus is a direct reference to the ancient Greek god of the sky and thunder. Oh and science – deep breath – “The Zeus is likely a very powerful Tesla Cannon, which shoots megawatt lightning at a long range, ionising the target area and superheating the air around it, creating a small explosion equivalent to that of a thunderclap, which would destroy a conventional vehicle but only shake the robots in WR. This is supported by the fact that the Zeus has to “lock-on,” finding what amount of current, at what frequency, and at what particular charge is needed to selectively hit the target and not the ground in front of the cannon.” Whew.
