Welcome to the Beginners' Guide!
For the purpose of these guides we have classified beginner as the portion of the game up to Player Level 20 when the Workshop is unlocked. The Workshop generates WP (workshop points) which are used to buy some of the more advanced weapons and robots.
We have put together a list of the most popular information requested by new players of War Robots! This information is provided by experienced players who have taken the time to test various combinations of Robots and Weapons. However, these are only recommendations and you should experiment yourself to find out what works for you and your style of play.
The guides are generally written with the assumption that the player will be leveling up naturally and will be earning Gold as they go. Of course you can always buy Gold or pay for Premium using in game purchases to get a head start and avoid some of the early grinding.
Confused about which Robots and Weapons to purchase? Should you spend precious Gold on that extra hangar slot or a fancy new Weapon or Robot? Or perhaps you just want to know what those Beacons are all about? Then these are the pages that will answer your questions and get you up and running quickly.
