…Heavy hardpoint is situated at 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 highly versatile and balanced robot, the Vityaz is suitable for both beginner and intermediate players and capable of being equipped to function well at any range.

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 durability. Among the medium robots, the Vityaz is second only to the Boa in terms of hit points.

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.

Recommended builds

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 Spirals and 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.
