Introduction

The Ao Jun is a medium robot with 2 heavy hardpoints. It is unofficially classified as a heavy robot based on wiki criteria.

Ability

The Ao Jun's ability is Dragon Breath.

When Dragon Breath is activated, the robot rises into the air for 6 seconds, gains a 111% speed boost (95 km/h at max speed), Stealth for the duration of the flight and can damage enemies with its built-in flamethrower-type weapon, which also possesses a DoT effect. It is possible for the pilot to manually shorten the duration and land prematurely by pressing the ability button again. Doing so will automatically cancel the flight, the flamethrower and stealth.

While in flight the robot hovers and cannot increase or decrease altitude. It can reach a higher altitude if the ability is activated in a location higher than ground level, or by using the Jump Unit Active Module.

The flamethrower functions much like the Ember with a maximum range of 350 meters and the ability to bypass both energy and physical shields, but with the added benefit of providing Damage Over Time (DOT) effect (corrosion damage). 

Strategy

This robot is widely considered the best of the three dragon bots, possessing good health, firepower, and speed. All of these qualities, in conjunction with its powerful Dragon Breath ability, mean the Ao Jun is a powerful ambusher that can inflict massive damage in short amounts of time.

Its Dragon Breath ability is ideal for taking down powerful enemy bots, groups of enemies, or inflicting significant damage against Titans. Other uses include defending / taking vital beacons and areas, supporting attacking teammates or ensuring one’s survival in order to contribute more later on in the battle. Even without its ability, the Ao Jun has enough firepower to hold off, cripple, or even destroy "tank" bots such as the Falcon, and can use its speed and agility while in the air to evade bots equipped with Quantum Radar.

In summary, the Ao Jun is a deadly threat that can take down even the most powerful enemy robots.

Note: The Limited Edition "Deathwing"  is further enhanced by a +10% Armor boost. Some tips for using the Ao Jun

  • Before launching, look for QR eye icon above enemies; if you see it, wait to fly.
  • While in flight and during aerial assault, also keep a look out for QR (Quantum Radar) eyes; if you see it, you can disengage flight and land behind some cover, or keep attacking to destroy them quickly.
  • Always be beware of other Ao Jun's, as those with the Yang Lee pilot will be able to shoot you during flight using QR. It is best to attack them first, as they pose more of a threat than other robots on the ground.
  • Before launching, consider possible landing points of safety.
  • Keep an eye on flight ability countdown; be careful not to overextend the flight as this usually results landing in a dangerous position, and your robot being destroyed.
  • High DPS and damage output weapons are best suited for this bot, and weapons such as the GlacierRedeemer, Avenger and Ember sync very well with its ability. Make the best out of what you have!

The other consideration is target-locking.  Regardless of weapons choice, target-lock the opponent you intend to attack prior to engagement. If you don’t do this you will find your targeting jumping to other targets. When using weapons that require delayed auto-targeting, such as Calamity, it is recommended to

  • Pre-select the target
  • Lock-on and fly
  • Activate QR (preferably after the target activates their ability, so you can switch to them quickly)
  • Conduct the assault 

Tip: When using Calamities It is useful to pre-select a target other than your main prey even if they’re behind cover. Start firing, then move your aim to your intended target and the Calamities'' arc will jump to the new target. That is how you circumvent the issue of waiting for auto-lock to engage your main target. As for attacking other Ao Juns, because a good pilot will notice pre-activated QR icons, you’ll want to wait to activate your QR until they are already airborne so you don’t "telegraph" you’re hunting them. If you have the Yang Lee pilot, it is much easier as you'll automatically get QR, so you don't have to worry as much about losing the lock-on.

Skill Level

This robot is relatively easy to pilot. With built-in Stealth, overwhelming firepower, good acceleration, and high speed, the robot is a nightmare for most targets. However, caution must still be used when fighting similarly powerful robots, especially in Champion league as once it lands it is extremly vulnerable.

Trivia

  • The Ao Jun's flamethrower ability and clawed feet are reminiscent of European dragons
  • Ao Jun is named after 敖顺 (pronounced:Ao Shun), the White Dragon, which is the god of the West and the essence of autumn, it controls snow, hail, dew, and ice. It is supposed to be the smallest dragon n the four, but it is actually the most powerful in-game. Its ability has no affiliation at all with the myth, though.
  • The Chinese characters 白龙 ("white dragon") are written on the "nose" of the Ao Jun.
  • Ao Jun's color corresponds with its dragon's color.
  • Ao Jun's paintjob Cyber holds the record of the most exorbitant paint job, ever (10 000 Au, more than the value of the robot).
  • The Deathwing Ao Jun in the first operation, is the only alteration that makes it look more like a real European dragon
  • On Steam, Ao Jun's flamethrower has reduced rate of fire
  • The Paint Job "Maracatu" (one of the three "Carnival Paint Jobs") is named after "Maracatu", a musical rhythm, dance and ritual of religious syncretism originating in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco. There are two types, depending on the "thud" or beat: Maracatu Nação ("nation") and Maracatu Rural.
  • This robot was added on January 29, 2019.
