Introduction

The Corona is a close to mid-range (up to 500 meters, with a 80-meter optimal range) medium energy weapon.

Strategy

The Corona is an energy shotgun and a medium version of the light Halo and heavy Glory.

The Corona is similar to the Storm, however each of the Corona's projectiles can root (lock down) a target by adding to the root threshold. The higher the Corona's level the more effective it is at locking down opponents. However, if the projectiles from the Corona or any Lockdown weapon do not hit the target for one second or longer, the root threshold starts to deplete slowly.

The Corona has high burst DPS (Damage Per Second) at close range and can bypass energy shielding.  Due to the large horizontal energy arc it is possible to hit multiple targets.

The key difference between the Halo, Corona and Glory when compared to the Shredder and Pulsar is energy shotguns are far less accurate from a distance but deal far more damage at close range.

The Halo, Corona, and Glory's immobilization ability has several important uses. Immobilizing enemy robots helps in targeting, it allows you or your team more time to capture beacons, and can assist in escaping dangerous situations.

The kinetic shotguns (Gust, Storm, and Thunder) have great synergy with the Corona as they have the same range and similar firing mechanics. Pairing with strong burst fire weapons such as the Orkan, Igniter, Exodus, or Ember can allow you to quickly eliminate rooted enemies with splash damage having a great effect on closely packed and immobilized bots.  Lastly, using strong energy weapons such as the Taran, Dragoon or Redeemer can make full use of the Corona's energy based damage.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Quick rate-of-fire for high burst DPS
  • Energy-based projectiles allows gun to bypass energy shielding
  • Shots catch on Aegis shields which quickly depletes them due to projectile spread
  • Can  immobilize enemies
  • Huge damage at close range (300 meters or less)
  • Reload-while-firing

Cons

  • Bullet spread prevents weapon from reaching maximum damage capacity at range (500 meters)
  • Mediocre damage at 300-500 meters 
  • Ineffective against physical shields
  • Slow reload time

Effect Accumulation %

The higher the percentage the more effective the weapon's projectiles are at accumulating the root effect (allows the weapon to bypass an enemy's root threshold faster).

Note: Mark II levels 1-12 does not increase accumulation values (Mark I level 12 is the highest accumulation possible).

Level Accumulation %
1 60%
2 61%
3 62%
4 64%
5 66%
6 68%
7 72%
8 75%
9 80%
10 85%

Accuracy By Distance

Below is the average percentage (%) of particles (per energy round) that hit an enemy robot (if aimed directly at) at specific ranges.

Range Accuracy %
50 meters or less 100%
100 meters 74%
150 meters 47%
200 meters 39%
250 meters 30%
300 meters 27%
350 meters 21%
400 meters 20%
450 meters 16%
500 meters 7%

Note: The numbers shown are based on an average-sized robot being targeted. Due to this, these percentages can be higher or lower depending on the size of the targeted robot.

Trivia

  • As of Update 5.0, the Corona has the same rate of fire as its light counterpart, the Halo.
  • The Corona has a special variant (Yan-di Corona) that was able to be won during the Yan-di Showdown event.
  • Currently, there is a bug that causes the Corona to reload much slower on the test server.
