The Gepard is a light robot with 3 light hardpoints.

Pros and Cons


  • Decent firepower
  • Excellent speed
  • Lack of an 'advantage period' for hit-and-run enemies to exploit


  • Lack of any form of shielding
  • Lack of an ability
  • Low HP


The Gepard has a fixed speed of 58 km/h, making it the second fastest Tier 1 robot currently in the game (outperformed only by the Stalker at 66km/h). The high speed makes the Gepard an excellent beacon capper, while its strong-ish health pool (considering its size) and decently powerful armaments make it more than capable on holding its own in a fight.

While brawling, health should be conserved whenever possible as the Gepard is rather lacking in that faction. Cornershooting before engaging with a target to chip away their health is a good tactic, while due to its small frame and fast groundspeed facehugging and circling the enemy also helps conserve HP.

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. While hit-and-running, try to pick a courtyard-esque area where the enemies are, find a small gap with walls on either side and then run from one wall to another, unloading your weapons while in the open. Ideally, burst-damage promoting weapons should be used for this role. The Gepard, if all works out, will sustain little to no damage from the unprepared enemies and the enemies will have taken a beating from the burst-damage weapons.

On long range maps, the Gepard is good for flanking enemies and threatening the enemy home beacon. Unlike most other Tier 1 light robots, the Gepard can conduct flanking manoeuvres on its own, as its decent firepower and fast speed allows it to conduct an effective maul without losing the element of surprise or the speed necessary to escape the scene when things get ugly.

Counterplay: The Gepard is a very strong Tier 1 bot that can be quite hard to take down. However, employing cornershooting/covershooting to chip the Gepard's health down without exposing youself is a very effective strategy. Luring the Gepard into the open can prove to be its demise, as it lacks any ability which facilitates a burst of speed to get it back into cover. Finally, weapons with massive burst damage can destroy the Gepard in a single clip, provided there is enough of them, as the Gepard is still squishy when compared to medium and heavy robots.

Threat Measure: The Gepard is a moderate-high threat as a Tier 1 robot, as its decent firepower and excellent speed make it one of the most proficient all-rounders in the Tier, falling short only in terms of HP. Unlike other Tier 1 robots, its upgrades do not outperform it significantly, so it can still hold its own in Tier 2 leagues.


Tiered-down downgrades: N/A

Downgrades: Destrier
The Gepard boasts more HP, more speed and more firepower than the Destrier, outclassing it in every way.

Alternatives: Bolt
The Bolt has equivalent firepower to the Gepard, but sacrifices groundspeed at every level for more HP and a Dash ability.

Upgrades: Gl. Patton
Depending on your playstyle, the Gl. Patton could be considered an alternative to the Gepard, but in general it's superior-it adds an additional light slot and much more HP in exchange for less speed.

Tiered-up upgrades: Ao Qin
The Gepard falls short of the Ao Qin in almost every category-the latter boasts more HP, an additional light slot, an ability which allows it to gain a significant speed bonus & vantage point and a powerful built-in weapon, falling short of the Gepard only in base speed.

Possible Setups

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.

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.

Not Recommended

  • 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
  • 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.
