This is currently a barebones listing of all "meta" setups within the game. The reasons as to why they are so good will be added later, for now, it is simply best as to list them out.

The individual robots and their setups are roughly in order by best to worst.

Note: This page is not about unconventional setups that you think work, please only enter in tried and proven setups that are commonly used in their respective leagues (hence why they make up the ‘meta’.) Any setup entered here that is not part of the "conventional" meta will be counted as either spam or vandalism.

It is currently being updated as of now


Low Level Hangars

NOTE #1: Due to the current status of tiering in War Robots, Low Level Hangars may have become irrelevant, as hangars of this level are immediately thrown into strong competition

Bots

Light Bots

Gareth

  • Orkan + Pinata/Magnum 
  • Taran + Magnum/Pinata

Gepard

Jesse 

  • 4 x Pinata
  • 4 x Aphid
  • 2 x Magnum + 2 x Pinata/Aphid ( allows for quick burst damage before switching to concentrated fire )

Medium Bots

Rogatka

  • 2 x Taran
  • 2 x Orkan

Boa

  • Thunder + Orkan/Taran
  • Thunder + Punisher T (This setup, whilst cheap and effective, should only be used as a ‘stopgap’ whilst you are saving up for an Orkan or Taran.)


NOTE #2: As many of the robots listed above rapidly become obsolete as the player progresses (with the exception of the Boa and Rogatka) it is sometimes a better option to stick to silver robots and weapons...the Gold can be saved up and used later in the game where it is needed more (e.g for 5th slot)

  • Exodus Raijin (2x Exodus or Exodus Ancile)
