…Boasting 4 light weapon slots, this robot is extremely versatile - a universal soldier. Fit for combat at any range… – in-game description


Introduction

The Gl. Patton is a medium robot with 4 light hardpoints. It was released in the first version of the game.

Strategy

This robot is considered an upgrade from the Destrier, having twice the firepower and health, but a little bit less mobility. The Patton is the only robot in the game that can fire 4 light weapons at once, allowing for many weapon load-outs.

Solid load-outs for a Patton include; 4 Aphids, Pinatas, or Punishers. These combinations represent a massive amount of firepower. A Patton with quadruple Spirals can also damage other bots greatly. Pattons wielding 4 Aphids can be commonly seen, even in the higher leagues. Another combination is using Gekkos, as these are powerful at long range, especially in groups on large and open maps. Lastly, Gusts could be used for effectively taking down Ancile shields, due to the shield catching all of the projectiles, even from a safe distance.

It is recommended that the player uses the Patton as a support or ambush unit. When equipped with Aphids, Molots or Punishers, the robot can be very effective in support or providing suppressive fire. Additionally, when equipped with Pinatas, this robot becomes very effective at ambushing enemies. However, when one uses these strategies, they must be situationally aware.


The Gl. Patton is rendered mostly obsolete in higher tiers by the Griffin, which is considered more formidable with more damage potential, and the Jump ability. This robot can still be highly effective when used with caution.

Possible Setups

These setups are recommended for the Patton:

Note: Each slot type is filled with only one particular weapon. For example, if a robot has 3 light all three of those slots are filled with Pinatas, as mixing weapons of the same slot type is not advisable.
