“…A deceptive mechanical predator always ready to ambush an unsuspecting enemy... just like the gunslingers of old…” – in-game description
Jesse was released during the 2016 Christmas event, and will be available as a token purchase on the 27th of January to the 12th of February. Jesse is one of three Quick Draw bots (alongside Doc and Butch).
With 4 Light Weapon hardpoints, strategies include bearing four of a kind, using the Quick Draw ability to exploit reload times, or mix ranges between the two weapon sets to control as much area as possible. This allows Jesse to be a brilliant support bot, only limited by low base stats.
It was anticipated that Jesse would be a "gunslinger", such that appropriate weapons would be Molot and Punisher. Equipping Aphids with Pins or Pinatas with Magnums will make good use of the Quick Draw ability to exploit reload times and protect themselves and beacons. Although Jesse has limited knife fighting ability, the Quick Draw ability makes for a good support bot.
In some cases, Jesse is the most heavily armed light robot. With the Quick Draw ability, they are theoretically capable of equaling damage per cycle with a Patton, even being a Light Robot, but the Quick Draw's reload time generally reduces the amount of damage Jesse can output.
- Jesse is named after Jesse James, Jesse Woodson James (September 5, 1847 – April 3, 1882) was an American outlaw, guerrilla, gang leader, bank robber, train robber, and murderer from the state of Missouri and the most famous member of the James-Younger Gang. Jesse and his brother Frank James were Confederate guerrillas or bushwhackers during the Civil War.
