Introduction

The Cryo is a close-range (up to 300 meters) Cryogenic medium rocket weapon.

Strategy

The explosive shells works very similar to its light counterpart Rime and it's heavy counterpart Glacier, due to the freeze ability and the reload while firing mechanic.

It is pretty similar to the Orkan. When unloading and quicky went to cover once it's empty, it also has good synergy with other close-range weapons as well. It increases the damage dealt to the target when it is in a closer range, just like most of the other rocket launchers.

A hit-and-run strategy is advisable due to its huge burst damage + freeze effect and poor performance in sustained combat.

Though, the Cryo doesn't deal enough damage to the enemies by itself. Therefore, it should be used with multiple Cryos or with Rimes, Glaciers or other close-range weapons to maximize it's potential.

The Cryo's ability to freeze enemy robots and splash damage , especially when used with its counterparts, makes it very useful at pinning down fast-moving enemy robots which rely on their speed to cause maximum speed and chaos, such as the Kumiho, Strider or Pursuer. This allows one's teammates to quickly eliminate the threat and buy's time for the rest of the team to get into a good firing position.

It can also be used to pin down enemies pursuing you, allowing more time for a strategic retreat or repositioning without losing too much health. Lastly, it is a very effective counter to Titans, blasting an enemy Titan with the Cryo or Cryos deals significant damage and slows the target down, allownig you and your teammates to deal immense damage whilst the Titan is slowed down. It is best to have one or more Cryogenic weapons for this strategy to be effective.
