Introduction

The Gauss is a long-range weapon (up to 800 meters) heavy kinetic weapon. It has a light and medium conterpart (Volt and Weber respectively) and can be viewed as the kinetic counterpart to the Trebuchet.

Strategy

The Gauss is a unique weapon belonging to the Railgun family. Like its light and medium counterparts. the Gauss can actually penetrate a robot's defence system, allowing it to bypass any damage resistance that robot may have. This should be any Gauss user's main focus, to focus on any tanks that rely on damage resistance to survive (namely the Falcon, Leech, Ao Guang etc.) Robots such as Fury, Raijin, Behemoth, and Jaeger do great with the Gauss since they have either many hardpoints/unique abilities that function well with the Gauss' sniper nature.

A strange thing about the Gauss is that it's actually somewhat of a hit-and-run sniper weapon. While on paper it may seem like a horrible idea, in practice it functions quite well. The reason behind this strange mix of attributes is that the Gauss has a charge attribute, which means that it actually has multiple reloads: the initial reload and the charge reloads. The initial reload is the first reload that the Gauss actually needs (if it's not complete, the Gauss cannot fire), but it is quite short... because the Gauss' damage initially is minimal. However, after the initial reload is complete, it is followed by numerous charge reloads: each of these are shorter than the initial reload, but every time a charge reload is completed, the Gauss' plasma bubble will glow brighter, and the shot, if fired then, will deal more damage. In short, the longer the Gauss is left on-standby, the more damage it will deal.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • 800m range allows robot to fire at enemies without fear of retaliation
  • Defense Mitigation attribute allows it to penetrate any robots' damage resistance (if appliable)
  • Single shot attribute allows robot to minimize exposure time
  • Kinetic attribute allows double damage to physical shields
  • Tremendous damage when fully charged
  • Fast projectile speed makes it hard to miss

Cons

  • Long reload
  • Ineffective in close combat against specialized brawling weapons
  • Single shot means shields will soak up excess damage when destroyed
  • Cannot penetrate energy shields
  • Horrible at sustained fighting
