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.

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.
