The Gepard has a fixed speed of 58 km/h, making it the third fastest robot at base level (first being the Stalker at 66 km/h, the second being the Phantom at 60 km/h). By comparison the Cossack doesn't reach the same speed until level 9 (however, the Cossack can jump, and jumping is faster than walking). The high speed makes the Gepard a good beacon capper in the lower leagues, however its low durability means the pilot must be careful when engaging enemy robots.
The Gepard's speed and agility makes it good for hit and run tactics, dodging heavy gunfire as well as quickly changing position to get into the range of targets. On long range maps, such as Yamantau, the Gepard is good for flanking enemies and threatening the enemy home beacon.
These setups are recommended for the Gepard:
Note: Each slot type is filled with only one particular weapon. For example, if a robot has 3 light all three of those slots are filled with Pinatas, as mixing weapons of the same slot type is not advisable.
Close Range (350m or less)
Long Range (800-1,100m)
Using a trio of Punishers is the most cost effective way to deal good DPS (damage per second). For close-in engagement, high burst DPS weapons such as the Gusts or Pinatas are recommended. For skirmishing and hit and run tactics, Aphids or Pins are a viable choice. Lastly, Gekkos or Molots can provide mid-range and long-range support.
- The use of Magnums can be done, as you would have continuous firepower (no reload), and solid DPS, however it is not recommend as when you are able to acquire these, you will most like have superior options of where to place them.
- The use of more valuable equipment because there are better platforms for mounting premium equipment.

- Once appeared on the War Robots app icon with 2× Punishers and a Molot
- The word Gepard means 'Cheetah' in German and Czech.
- The Gepard may be named after the Flakpanzer Gepard, a German Cold War-era SPAA
- Used to cost silver but was changed to cost 1,200 gold. In a more recent update this was reduced to 250, a much more reasonable price. It also cost 10,000 components before, making it the most cheap component in history, at only 75 Ag for one component (if 1 Au=3,000 Ag). Currently it is also the cheapest Au robot.
- The robot's head and thigh used to strongly resemble German Flakpanzer Gepard's turret and hull before the redesign
- Although the redesign heavily changed the Gepard's appearance, some details of the back of the robot are leftover from the previous design
- It was one of the most popular robots for gold farming, which is playing at low tiers for the sole purpose of getting gold, or silver. Presently, gold farming has become outdated and the Gepard has fallen out of favor for most players
- It is one of the two Gold/Component Bots who do not have an ability other than superior firepower, the other being the Fury
- Gepard is one of three robots that have a fixed speed along with Bolt and Stalker
- Gepard is the namesake of a class of patrol vessels and two types of self-propelled anti-aircraft guns used by the German military.
- This robot was added on September 6, 2014.
