…Eight on the Beaufort Scale. The enemy had better hold on tight if he wants to stay standing… – in-game description



Introduction

The Gust is a close to mid-range (up to 500 meters, with a 150 meter optimal range) light kinetic weapon.

Strategy

This shotgun works very similarly to the Storm (medium weapon) and the Thunder (heavy weapon), due to the bullet spread and the reload while firing mechanic. It fires faster than both but with less particles. This makes it a light version of the Storm or Thunder since it acts like them in many ways, and should be played similarly to them. Gust’s texture is similar to the appearance of the texture of the Thunder.

The Gust can take down Ancile shields effectively, due to most (if not all) of the projectiles hitting the Ancile, due to the large size of the shield. It can also destroy physical shields very quickly, due to double damage done to physical shields by kinetic weapons.

Like the other aforementioned shotguns, in order for the Gust to severely damage another robot, you must get close to your opponents. Not much damage will be done beyond 200 meters due to the bullet spread of the gun. However, the Gust can still take down Ancile shields effectively beyond that range (up to 500 meters). It is recommended to use an Ecu shield or an Ancile shield, or a bot with high speed or health to close the distance.

Mounting Options

Some good choices of robots to mount this shotgun on, are the Stalker, Pursuer and Leo. The Stalker, and even more so the Pursuer, make great use of their mounted Gusts with their stealth ability and speed, allowing them to get the most damage out of them by getting close to their respective target, while taking little, or possibly no damage in the process. Finally, the Leo can mount 3 of these along with a Thunder, as they have great synergy and when combined, they have devastating firepower at close range, enabling the robot to destroy most robots quickly.
