“…The most durable robot in its class. Perfect for close combat…” – in-game description
The speed of the Boa gives it a slight advantage on the battlefield. At level 9 it reaches its maximum speed of 42 KPH so it can quickly close in or sneak up on heavy enemies. At the top tiers of the game, the Boa is often seen equipped with a maxed Thunder and Orkan in order to do catastrophic damage in a short amount of time. At lower tiers, it is more common to see a Boa equipped with a Taran instead of an Orkan.
The Boa’s health rivals that of heavy robots, and it has the highest health out of all of the medium robots. Because of this, it can last an extremely long time compared to other robots. With a Thunder and an Orkan, it can create enormous amounts of damage when up close, and it can easily close the gap between opponents, making this robot and weapon set popular.
Although the Boa does have only 2 × hardpoints, many pilots (experienced and inexperienced) believe that this flaw is overshadowed by all of its advantages, and Adrian Chong has even included it in his “Top 5 Robots You Should Buy” Mini-series on YouTube. Link?
