…A dangerous dead-eye stocked up on firepower, well-prepared for both mid and long-ranged encounters… – in-game description


Introduction

Butch is a Heavy Robot with 4 heavy hardpoints, used two at a time, with the Quick Draw ability.

Butch was released during the 2016 Christmas event. At the cost of 13000 event tokens, Butch is the most expensive bot in the game, valued at 100 US dollars, and considered the best price to win in the event. Butch is one of three Quick Draw bots (alongside Jesse and Doc).

Strategy

With 4 heavy weapon hardpoints, strategies include bearing four of a kind, using the Quick Draw ability to exploit reload times, or mix ranges between the two weapon sets to control as much area as possible. This allows Butch to be a brilliant support bot, only limited by low base stats.

As for setups, equipping Tridents with Zeus' would be sufficient. Although the Butch has limited knife fighting ability, the Quick Draw ability makes it into a decent support bot.

In some cases, Butch can be the most heavily armed robot in the game. With the Quick Draw ability, they are theoretically capable of dealing more damage per cycle than a Fury, but the Quick Draw's long recharge time generally reduces the amount of damage Butch can output.  

It should be noted that long-range weapons are typically fairly useless, it is not recommended to use them on a Butch outside of the Trebuchet in specific situations.

Trivia

  • Butch is named after Butch Cassidy, Robert Leroy Parker (April 13, 1866 – November 7, 1908), better known as Butch Cassidy, was a notorious American train robber, bank robber, and leader of the Wild Bunch gang in the American Old West.
  • Butch is unable to equip an Ancile due to the Ancile theoretically being able to be used even when "put away", resulting in a bot that has 2 heavy weapons and a very powerful energy shield. This is probably why Pixonic made it so it can't equip Ancile due to it being too overpowered.
  • Equipping four Zeus' would not be an effective use of the Quick Draw ability due to their short reload time.
