Introduction

The Gekko is a long-range (up to 1,100 meters) light energy weapon.

Strategy

This long-range laser weapon is the light version of the Flux. In battle, a Gekko can force enemy units under cover, as many players do not appreciate a solid beam of light hitting their robot. It can also penetrate energy shielding.

While one Gekko can deal decent damage when highly upgraded, they are much more powerful in clusters of two, three, or even four, or when paired with the Flux. A dedicated robot carrying two to four Gekkos can severely damage an enemy. However, it is known to be an inferior weapon in close-range combat. Thus, it is a good strategy to target enemy robots in an open location where there is no available cover for them to hide behind.

It is recommended that the Gekko is used similarly to how one might use a Molot, although with much longer range.

The open fields of Springfield, Yamantau, and Canyon are prime locations for this weapon.

Trivia

  • In previous versions, the function of the Gekko was to “heat” up its target. This translated into the longer it fires upon the target, the hotter it got, and the more damage it dealt.
  • After the color change, the palette now resembles the true visible light spectrum in the correct order; violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red.
  • The Gekko has no medium counterpart.
  • This weapon was added on September 6, 2014.
  • After the War Robots Remastered Update, the colors are all red instead of multicolored
