Introduction

The Ares is a medium robot with 2 medium and 2 light hardpoints.

Ability

The ability named Retribution upon activation deploys an impenetrable Absorption shield (blocks all damage types with the exception of the Mercury's Helldive and the Hellburner's Overload) and brings out its 4 built-in energy cannons. For the first half of the 8 second ability duration, its shield can absorb damage to increase its built-in weapons' damage output by 119% of the damage the shield takes (for example, 1,000 damage absorbed will increase the Retribution damage by 1,190). The overall Retribution damage can be increased by up to 100% (double), allowing it to inflict tremendous damage in a short period of time. When the shield is absorbing damage, the built-in weapons begin to charge up indicated by the glow coming out of the cannons. Once the shield has absorbed enough damage, the glow will reach maximum brightness, and the cannons will be fully charged. However, while Absorber is active, the robot's movement speed is reduced by 33%.

Strategy

This robot is one of three in the Greek Pantheon faction, the other two being the Hades and the Nemesis.

Ares is quite possibly the most destructive robot in the game, hence the name Ares, who is the God of War and Bloodshed in Greek mythology. The Ares’ shield can consume an infinite amount of damage for up to 8 seconds, and its retractable plasma cannons can deal up to 92,000 damage if the enemy fires at its shield. It is incredibly fast for a medium robot, allowing it to run down and eliminate most enemies with ease. Using stealth and running inside its shield with a Pursuer or even a Stalker will finish the Ares off fairly quickly. However, an easier way is if the Ares is waiting for its ability to recharge. Its very low base HP will grant it little defense against most robot builds.

This is the best time to attack an Ares, but remember to attack quickly, as its ability reloads incredibly fast for what it is (it has a mere 18 second reload, 1 second shorter than the jump of a Griffin). When facing an Ares, remember never to fire at its shield, and go on a quick offense when the Ares is waiting for its ability to recharge. During this time, lock-down weapons may be used to stop the Ares in its tracks and possibly force the Ares’ pilot into activating the Ares’ ability. Despite its drawbacks, the Ares is a major threat to all robots that it encounters, even including the Spectre. Another thing to know about this robot is that its shield cannot absorb Hellburner and Mercury’s abilities, and an Invader can jump into the Ares shield and attack it.

If a player is fast enough, the Invader, Rayker and Blitz abilities can be used to hit and suppress an Ares before the ability activation, giving themselves a respite and the chance to either run away or run inside the Ares shield. Blitz's four lights can make short work of an Ares, and a Rayker even more so with a heavy and two lights. The Invader can tank a full burst of Ares' ability and when the ability is over it can simply destroy the Ares. With the release of Leech, it can use it's Repulse ability to counter it's ability through redirecting damage, forcing the mighty Pantheon Robot to escape or accept fate.


Threat Measure

Combining at base level of 64K HP and 48km/h speed, Ares is notoriously delicate, but with its Retribution ability and 2 lights with 2 medium weapons, this Pantheon robot is considered to be the most powerful bot in the game, side-stepping Ao Jun, Invader, and Bulwark. It can absorb up to 99K damage and redirect it with its 4 tentacles quickly.  While dangerous, Ares can be brought down by sheer firepower, Helldive or Overload, or intelligent tactics. It is considered to be a threat to every robot, especially if armed with Last Stand, or with any modules strong enough to back off an enemy. Not many robots can beat an ares in a direct fight, but the robot with the best chance of beating the ares in a direct encounter is a leech.

Possible Setups

Some effective setups for the Ares are:

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 light all three of those slots are filled with Pinatas, as mixing weapons of the same slot type is usually not advisable.

However, utility weapons can be effectively mixed with standard weaponry, for example the Halo (a root weapon) could be used on one light slot, and a Gust on another. This is because weapons such as the Halo give up firepower for the utility of locking down enemies.

Trivia

  • The robot Ares was named after the Greek God of War
  • Ares' 'tentacles' are actually redirecting weapons after absorbing the damage they received
  • The trailer for the Pantheon robots showed that Ares is the knife fighter, run-and-attack tactic method, and the strongest of the trio
  • Еldritch Arеs is possibly a reference to Cthulhu from the stories of H. P. Lovecraft
  • Click here for a 3D image of this robot.
  • Ares is named one of the highest priority targets to attack, so be cautious while piloting one.
  • The built in guns on the Ares bears a resemblances to the cannons on Thanos' war ship in Avengers Endgame
