“…On the canvas of battle, every missile volley is a work of art, a stunning painting of oil, smoke, and fire…” – in-game description
This missile launcher is a homing weapon, meaning it requires a target lock. This makes it able to fire while you are slightly facing away. The required target lock also takes some time, which can be fatal for the robot wielding it when facing an enemy up close.
This weapon should be used similarly to the Aphid, using cover to protect the bot, and should not be used in exceedingly close range. The Vortex is well paired with other weapons of its range of 350 meters, particularly it's light counterpart the Aphid.
- The Vortex is, in essence, a medium Aphid.
- Vortexes, like Aphids, occasionally will hit the target and no damage will register. Therefore, it is recommended if multiple Vortexes are equipped to fire them one after the other, not all at once, to minimize this bug.
- The name “Vortex” is a swirling rift of the elements. This corresponds with the nature of the missiles- they indeed fire in a cloud together, swirling as they fly.
- unlike Aphid(shoots white missiles), Vortex shoots Red missiles.
