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 shields.

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 one or multiple Flux(es). A dedicated robot carrying two to four Gekkos can severely damage an enemy. However, it is known to be an inferior weapon in melee combat. Thus, it is a good strategy, if one is seeking to destroy the robot, to shoot them while they are in the open and when there is no available cover.

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 SpringfieldYamantau, 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.
