…Swift and sturdy, Gareth is well suited for both capturing and defending beacons… – in-game description



Sir Gareth

The Gareth is a light robot with one light and medium hardpoint. It was released in version 1.8.

This robot has a built-in physical shield which is placed on the robot’s side. The Gareth’s Phalanx Mode ability (shared with medium robot Galahad) lets it switch its shield to the front, similar to how a medieval knight uses a shield. When the shield is in front, the robot’s movement speed is decreased by 20%, but the shield blocks oncoming projectiles to protect the Gareth.

In-game performance

Equipped with one medium and one light hardpoint, giving Gareth firepower similar to the Gepard. With only two hardpoints Gareth suffers more if one weapon is destroyed, however with shield deployed Gareth is capable of withstanding far greater punishment than the Gepard. With some caution, heavy bots may be engaged successfully, but this is not recommended as the Gareth’s shield may be destroyed and leave him highly vulnerable to counterattack. Gareth is well suited for countering Stalker pilots, as weapons are situated at a good height for damaging the Stalker even when Stealth Mode is engaged.

A Gareth pilot's role is for beacon capping and flanking. It's speed helps drastically with these two objectives, and when equipped with a Magnum and a Taran, it can be a powerful flanker. However, it will work most likely if the enemy's attention is diverted. If they notice you trying to get around them, retreat immediately.

While the shield adds greatly to the Gareth’s power, it does not render him invulnerable. Rockets are effective against shielded bots thanks to splash damage, and said shield may be broken after sustaining heavy damage.

Due to this bot being used as an early beacon runner (along with the Galahad and Stalker) it is very common to see players start out with splash weapons to completely ignore their shield.
