“…Small and brisk, but surprisingly durable, thanks to its hunt ability…” – in-game description
This robot has the Hunt ability, which when activated (10 second duration) gives the Pursuer a 33% speed increase, and becomes cloaked (stealth), in turn, making it impossible for enemies to target it. This gives the Pursuer a top speed of 88 km/h (rounded up), making it the fastest robot in game.
The Pursuer has the same speed as the Stalker, and both have an ability that allows them to become cloaked, thus, it is advisable to play this robot like one, using hit-and-run, and ambush tactics, along with capturing beacons. Some people would consider this to be an upgraded version of the Stalker, due to having more firepower (an extra light hardpoint), durability, and a speed boost while going into stealth.
These setups are recommended for the Pursuer:
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.

Long Range (800-1,100m)
There are multiple builds that can work effectively with this robot. Triple Gusts can deal considerable burst damage, which fits the hit-and-run style perfectly, allowing it to quickly cripple or eliminate enemies while its Hunt ability is active.
A trio of Pinatas could be used in a similar manner, however, it can bypass physical shields, but not as effective at potentially taking down Ancile shields as the Gusts. Aphids are another possible setup, due to this robots impressive speed and its ability, which can allow it to go out of cover to unload a salvo of missiles, then safely go back into cover without any fear of being targeted.
Lastly, three Magnums could do a good job at pressuring robots with Ancile shields, particularly ones with built-in energy shields, due to them usually having below average health.
