The Battle Born is a passive module.


This module grants a robot with stackable defense points for 25 seconds the moment the equipped robot takes damage in battle. As this requirement is extremely low, the effect of this module can be easily wasted if not used correctly.

Battle Born is typically used in Domination and Beacon Rush. Mounting them on robots fighting for the center beacon at the start of the battle, or robots deployed for holding a beacon are good choices. Prime candidates for mounting Battle Born are tank robots for siege and holding points, which will receive high damage as soon as they deploy. In this way, for the period time granted, the bot will become resistant to damage and more likely to hold off enemies.

At base level, Battle Born will have a small effect of 20% resistance. It will become more significant after upgrading, but there are better choices for modules after a player would decide to upgrade them, as Battle Born modules are relatively weak (and therefore, cheap), and its effects can be replaced by Drones. It is advised to mount a Heavy Armor Kit instead of a Battle Born on robots that seek to enhance their durability long-term; and Cloaking Units outperform Battle Born in higher leagues as they provide near immunity through stealth.
