The Bolt is a medium robot with three light hardpoints. It is unofficially classified as a light robot based on wiki criteria. And is perfect for beacon Capturing


The Dash ability gives Bolt a quick burst of movement in any given direction. It shares this ability with the Korean robots and the Strider. The Bolt is the only robot with dash that can only store one charge, and is tied with the Kumiho with having the quickest ability cooldown (5 seconds).


The Bolt is a light bot (according to Wiki criteria) with 3 light hardpoints, lower than average health, and a very small frame. The Bolt starts at level 1 with excellent ground speed (55 km/h) that matches the Gepard. The Bolt is best used as a beacon capper thanks to its dash ability. Due to its low hit points, low firepower, and only one Dash charge, pilots should save the ability to escape dangerous situations and not conduct sustained engagements. The Bolt is best used for supporting ambushes by using Aphids or Pinatas.

Due to its extremely low durability, when playing as a beacon capper it is recommended to stay out of range of enemies. Weapons which promote huge burst damage like Pinata, Aphid or even Spiral should be used to finish off any enemies which target you, relying on allies to grind them down to a low enough health threshold in which you can finish them off in one clip. As such, when commanding the Bolt in this fashion the commander should always take a route to beacons which force any intercepting enemies to walk into sniper fire or into a passing brawler's range.

If the commander is seeking to gain honor by destroying enemies, the Bolt should only be used in helping ambushes, not conducting them. Due to its extremely low hitpoints, if the Bolt is caught off-guard alone by even a sniper robot like Natasha it will generally be obliterated in a matter of seconds (with the exceptions of Zenit and Noricum users).

The Bolt can also be used to flank the enemy by covering large distances in a relatively short amount of time. This allows the Bolt to either conduct an ambush on an unsuspecting target or distract the enemy, as the Dash allows for the Bolt to both quickly reach its target and escape from fire.

And try picking slow enemies so you can out run them. and retreat quick if you are losing. And the dash is perfect for Shielded Enemies. Like Lancelot, Galahad, Gareth. (Won't work with Shell, it has a shield all around him. Like a shell) You can also try Arthur but it's too powerful. Use dash to run around the shield and shoot.

Another good target are enemies that have rocket weapons. Like a Natasha with Rime and Glaciers. When they shoot, dash away and don't stop moving.

Threat Measure

The Bolt is a decent beacon capper and a moderate threat only in the lower leagues. When transitioning into the middle leagues, it is outclassed by the more durable Kumiho and later the Strider.
