“…Missile complex designed to deliver plunging fire on slow-moving groups of robots. Cannot lock on targets within 400m radius…” – in-game description
The Noricum is an artillery weapon designed for long to medium range. Most common on heavy robots, the Noricum fires a spread of 14 rounds at a given area marked by the cross-hairs on the game screen. Although its maximum range is 900 meters, the spread of the shots is generally similar regardless of what distance it is fired at. Due to the spread, the Noricum does as little as 1k-2k damage per bot.
For accuracy, 700-500 meters is the suggested firing distance. Equipped with several units, a robot can become a mobile artillery platform, capable of long range bombardment. Because of how it fires, the Noricum can hit most enemies behind cover, unless they are both behind cover and underneath an obstacle. However, the noricum does very little damage regardless.
Within 400 meters and less, the Noricum becomes unreliable, as the shots cannot curve the required distance for very close bombardment. Inside of 200 meters, the Noricum becomes practically useless unless the robot manages to place the Noricum unit directly under an enemy robot, the two robots are directly next to the same wall, or the robot fielding the Noricum is directly under a walkway the enemy robot is on. The Noricum's splash damage properties can cause massive damage in a very short amount of time. However, it is much more difficult to utilize than the Pinata or Orkan. It is not recommended to be used as a short range weapon.
- This is considered one of the weakest weapons in the game. The spread of rockets does not do much damage to a single robot.
- Noricum is the Latin name for a Celtic kingdom, or federation of tribes, that included most of modern Austria and part of Slovenia.
