Introduction

The Shredder is a close to mid-range (up to 500 meters, with a 200-meter optimal range) light energy weapon.

Strategy

This energy machine gun has a chance to root enemies and a 500-meter range, meaning that it is well-suited to perform as a close-mid range suppressor. What it lacks in firepower, it makes up for in root effect potential. As a bonus, due to it being an energy weapon, the Shredder (along with its medium counterpart the Pulsar) bypasses energy shields.

With its short 5 second reload, robots equipped with the Shredder or Pulsar can be vital in guarding important beacons, stopping enemy robots and allowing teammates with more firepower to race over to help. This tactic of suppressive fire at range can be devastatingly effective on open maps such as Yamantau, Shenzhen and Canyon.

The Shredder has the largest effect on the Dash Bots (Kumiho, Strider, Haechi and Bulgasari). The ability to lock them down and deprive them of their mobility (one of their key strengths) can lead to their destruction or crippling. The Haechi in particular is vulnerable, due to it having low base health to compensate for its built-in Ancile. It can also effectively ground robots that are capable of jumping, in other words it prevents a locked down robot from leaving the ground. It does not prevent Descend robots (Spectre and Inquisitor) from entering stealth, however. Though the Mercury with it's Helldive ability is not able to trigger it's stealth or explosion while locked down.
