“…One of the most durable light robots…” – in-game description
The Destrier is a fast Light Robot with 2 light Hardpoints and is the robot that all players start the game with. The Destrier starts with 44,000 HP and a base speed of 42 km/h, making it a good early choice for capturing beacons. However, it is recommended new players buy the Patton or the Vityaz instead of 2, as the extra firepower is a necessity in higher leagues.
The Destrier can be used a close range knife fighter when first starting the game. Equipped with dual Punishers or Pinatas can make for a decent robot for beginners. However, the Destrier will become obsolete in higher leagues, as it lacks the firepower and resilience required to be able to survive.
Strategies with this bot mainly involves flanking and capturing Beacons, but can also be used for head-on assault provided the the opposing force is outnumbered or outgunned.
The Destrier is a one-of-a-kind bot, as it is the starting one of every player. A lot of high-league pilots hold fond memories of this obsolete yet unique light bot.
