…This robot is a fast, unpredictable, perilous predator for any unlucky enough to become its prey… – in-game description


Introduction

The Strider is a medium robot with 1 heavy and 2 light hardpoints. It was released in version 3.6.0.

Ability

The Strider has the Dash ability. The Strider contains 5 Dash charges, each charge with a 12 second cooldown. This allows the Strider to travel very far very quick, but have to wait a long duration before doing so again.

Strategy

The extra charges aren't the only things allowing the Strider to many different tactics and play styles. The Strider is the first robot with the dash ability to contain a light and a heavy hardpoint. This makes its playstyle quite different from the korean bots.

When purchased, the Strider comes with the Pinata and Thunder weapons; both are known to be knife fighting weapons with high burst damage.

Play styles can include beacon capturing, and playing with close, mid or long ranged weapons . The 5 Dash charges can facilitate capturing a beacon and moving on to the next, or moving towards cover. Perhaps, the Strider can be used like a hawk, to quickly pick off an enemy with low health, and then disappear just as quickly. However, its low health and lack of any shields means that it won't last long sustained fire.

At the beginning of a game, it is possible to immediately capture the center beacon on any map if one uses all 5 dashes in quick succession.

Possible Setups

These are the recommended setups for the Strider:

Note: When "Opt." is next to a slot type, it refers to one of the multiple options that can be used in combination with the other weapon(s) slot type(s).

Each slot type is filled with only one particular weapon. For example, if a robot has 3 lights all three of those slots are filled with Pinatas, as mixing weapons of the different ammunition types is not recommended.

Trivia

  • Strider has the same hardpoints as the Vityaz and Mecury. Despite this, all three bots are played very differently.
  • While it shares the Dash ability with the Korean robots, the Strider does not appear to be part of the Korean faction.
  • The term Strider means "to walk with long or extended steps" which cognate words from Germanic languages meaning “to fight or struggle.”
  • It appears the Strider's design was based on a gargoyle.
