“…They say he will protect us. But is that so? All he's thinking about is bringing Justice... in his own twisted way.…” – in-game description
The Dash ability gives it the capability of a quick burst of movement in any given direction. It shares this ability with the other two Korean robots, and the Strider. The Haechi can store two Dash charges, and shares the same cooldown time (15 seconds) with the Bulgasari.
The Haechi is tied with the Bulgasari in terms of firepower, sporting 3 medium hardpoints. The combination of its abilities and impressive firepower make this robot a total powerhouse. It can excel at multiple different play-styles depending on the load-out, including ambush, support, brawling, or beacon capturing.
A large weakness of the Haechi is its vulnerability to energy weapons. So using weapons such as the Zeus, Dragoon, Trebuchet, and Shocktrain can be an effective counter to the Haechi, especially due to their range. Scourges can work very well due to their ability to stay locked-on to targets, even when robots use the Dash ability. Tarans are also effective due to their fast projectile speed and high damage. However, they require you to get within 350 meters of the robot, so caution is advised.
These setups are recommended for the Haechi:
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.
Close Range (350m or less)
|Slot Types →||Medium Slot ↓|
|#Slots →||x3||Name ↓|
|Setup 1 →||Death Button|
|Setup 2 →||Plasma Death Button|
|Setup 3 →||Leadhose|
|Setup 4 →||Shotgun|
|Setup 5 →||Nuke|
One of the most common and powerful setups is using 3 Orkans on a Haechi due to the massive amount of burst damage it can inflict. Thanks to its Dash ability, the Haechi is able to quickly close in within 300 meters of its targets, and with its built-in energy shield, the Haechi can block incoming rockets, giving it the durability needed to survive a close-range brawl.
Triple Tarans and Scourges are also popular builds, being able to counter other Haechis or other robots using energy shields. Ranged builds can include using Shocktrain, Ion, and the aforementioned Scourge, making the Haechi a strong support robot.
