“…A scout robot, well-suited for quickly capturing beacons and chasing down quick opponents.…” – in-game description
This robot has its own ability taken to a completely new concept: partial use of its gliding ability. This ability acts like weapons that can reload while firing and can be used to make short bursts of it instead of one long burst.
When the glide ability is activated, the robot will slowly propel itself into the air at the speed of the robot. The altitude of the jump depends on how long the ability button is pressed, making the robot fly higher as the button is held down longer. After landing, the user must wait for 7 seconds before the ability can be used again, no matter the amount of fuel left. This means that improper use of this ability can cause you to land in the wrong place filled with enemies.
Gliding too high can result in you heavily exposed while gliding too low can result in an inability to go over tall obstacles. This means that unlike the Jump ability, which is the same for each individual robot, this ability allows the player to control the flight trajectory. Not controlling it properly can result in being trapped in the midst of enemy lines, or even worse, landing in glitched areas that can be extremely difficult to get out of.
A common loadout of this weapon includes 2x Orkan and 1x Pinata, or 2x Taran and 1x Magnum, or some combination of the two. These loadouts are common for individual threats and can bypass a specific type of shield (Ecu for the former and Ancile for the latter). They also have extremely high values of DPM, making them effective for knife-fighting but useless for long ranges beyond 300m or 350m.
- The Hover is the first robot with an ability that can be used partially, and not completely (glide).
- A visual animation of thrusters firing in the rear occurs when the ability is activated and when falling off cliffs, with the latter not draining the fuel.
- This robot is one of five robots without an official faction, the others being the Stalker, Carnage, Rhino, and Inquisitor
