…Heavy hardpoint is placed on the side which allows for uninterrupted fire from cover… – in-game description


The Vityaz is a medium robot with 1 heavy and 2 light hardpoints. It was released in the first version of the game.


A versatile and balanced robot. The Vityaz is suitable for both beginner and intermediate players, also capable of being equipped to function well at any range. However, it becomes obsolete fairly quickly, as the higher tier silver robots out perform this robot.

With its two light weapons, the Vityaz has less firepower than the Golem but somewhat makes up for the lack of a medium hardpoint, with increased starting durability. This robot has slightly more firepower than the Boa, but at the cost of a substantial amount of durability.

The elevated position of the heavy hardpoint on its right shoulder above one of the light hardpoints also allows the Vityaz to lay down effective fire even while the left side of its hull remains in cover.

The ability to mount a Thunder and two other close-range weapons like Aphids, Pinatas or Magnums can make the Vityaz a powerful close-range fighter, especially since its respectable speed allows it to rapidly close distances with enemy robots.

At medium range, the Zeus and the Trident can be combined with other light close-to-mid-range weapons such as Pins to be formidable. A Vityaz armed with a Kang Dae, Nashorn or Trebuchet, with two Gekkos can act as a long range sniper or support robot. 

Possible Setups

These are the recommended setups for the Vityaz:

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.

The Vityaz is a versatile robot, and is able to perform well in a variety of different roles. However, high-level weapons costing components such as the Ember, Dragoon, Gust or Redeemer are not listed here as the Vtyaz is most commonly used in the lower leagues (e.g Bronze) where it is very unlikely that players will manage to purchase or win component weapons. By the time most players purchase their first component weapon, they are usually in a much higher league using better robots such as the Leo or Lancelot. If players already have component weapons and are in the lower leagues, then they should use them nonetheless.

  • There are two visible "52" markings on Vityaz's "bottom" and left shoulder. Also, it has the marking of Russia's airborne forces emblem near "head", thus making it possible that design is loosely based on Kamov KA-52 airborne helicopter.

  • In a previous logo of War Robots, the Vityaz was seen with two punishers and a nashorn.
