“…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 speed of 42mph, 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 for a successful player.
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, progressing through the game soon reveals that this robot is outclassed by all other options. Robots like the Gepard and Stalker outclass the Destrier as beacon runners and hit and run robots, and nearly every single robot in the medium and heavy category are vastly superior as knife fighters. It is never advisable to run a Destrier unless it is kept in very low tiers.
- All players start the game with a Destrier equipped with its default Spiral and Molot.
- Its name is a reference to a medieval warhorse known as a Destrier.
- A Destrier slightly resembles the ED-209 from Robocop, however it is unknown if this is intentional.
