…Equipped with three light and one heavy weapon slots which makes him suitable for any battle situation… – in-game description

Leo (Heavy Robot)


The Leo is a Heavy Robot with 3 Light and 1 heavy hardpoints.

Purchased at level 6 with 155,000 HP and a base speed of 32 mph, it is an intimidating presence on the battlefield. The Leo reaches its maximum speed of 35 mph at level 9.

Because of its ability to mount a heavy weapon and three light weapons, it is very versatile. A Leo can be configured for close combat with a loadout of an Thunder or Zeus for its heavy weapon and Magnums, Pinatas, or Punishers for the light hard points.

Less commonly seen but still highly capable is the 1x Trident/3x Pin loadout. Optimized at medium ranges, possessing less firepower than a 3x Trident Fury or a 2x Trident/2x Pin Natasha, but with better speed and durability than either bot. One other effective medium-range Leo mounts 1x Thunder and 3x Pins; this version is less specialized than the Thunder/Pinata Leo, trading sheer point-blank firepower for vastly improved range and splash damage.

Suggestions for long-range combat are the Nashorn or Kang Dae for its heavy weapon, and three Molots can do a great deal of damage from moderate range. Some Leos are armed exclusively with energy weapons: an Trebuchet or a Zeus for its heavy weapon and three Gekkos, as this can be a deadly combination due to the precision and damage of energy weapons, as well as their ability to ignore energy shields.  

Leos are a bit slow to use as knife fighters, the trade off coming when the Leo's devastating broadside is eventually brought to bear. High burst damage and firepower make Leo a nightmare to deal with, and its extreme health pool can be hard for even Rhinos to take down. The most powerful knife fighter set up for the Leo is currently X1 Thunder and X3 Pinatas. This has extremely high burst damage and can cripple opponents before they deal too much damage, however, it is effective only at ranges of 300m or less. It is not advised to maintain continuous Thunder barrage fire unless range is less than 250m; the Thunder's large shot spread renders the Thunder almost useless beyond point-blank range.  

Lancelot is one of the toughest bots for a knifer Leo to counter, as Lancelot's durability is little less than the Leo while firepower is slightly superior. While the Leo possesses higher burst damage, the Lancelot's firepower in an extended fight is markedly superior. It is recommended to engage Lancelot with Pin and/or Trident rockets when possible and avoid point-blank encounters. When forced to duel a Lancelot at close range, make use of any available cover and force the Lancelot to expose itself first. Once the initial shots have been exchanged and the Leo's Pinatas are empty, Lancelot's shield will render the Leo's thunder less effective and the Lancelot's own Thunder and Orkans/Tarans will continue to deal heavy damage. It is not likely that a knifer Leo will win a 1v1 battle with a full-health Lancelot unassisted.  

Overall, Leo is a powerful bot with extreme versatility. It is less specialized than other heavies, lacking Fury and Natasha's sniping firepower and falling short of the Lancelot's amazing durability as a knife fighter; however Leo is one of the very few bots that can be configured for literally any combat range and remain a legitimate battlefield threat.
