Introduction

The Gust is a close to mid-range (up to 500 meters, with a 150-meter optimal range) light kinetic weapon. It has an Alpha, Beta, medium and heavy counterpart (Grom, Squall, Storm and Thunder respectively) and can be viewed as the kinetic counterpart to the Halo and Scatter.

Strategy

This kinetic shotgun works very similarly to the medium Storm and heavy Thunder due to the bullet spread and the reload while firing mechanic. It fires faster than both but with less particles. The Gust's texture is similar to the appearance of the texture of the Thunder.

The Gust can take down energy shields effectively due to most (if not all) of the projectiles hitting the shield. It can also destroy physical shields very quickly due to double damage done to physical shields by all kinetic weapons.

Like the other aforementioned shotguns in order for the Gust to severely damage another robot you must get close to your opponents. Not much damage will be done beyond 200 meters due to the bullet spread of the shotgun. However, the Gust can still take down energy shields effectively beyond that range (up to 500 meters).

This weapon pairs well with its counterparts, the Storm and Thunder. It can also work well with energy shotguns; the Halo, Corona, and Glory, as these weapon share the same range but give the added effect of locking down enemies. This can effectively allow the robot to get very close to the enemy and deal its maximum amount of damage.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Very high damage at close range
  • Destroys energy shields easily (can deal significant damage even from a distance)
  • Double damage to physical shields
  • High damage per shot and good rate of fire results
  • Reloads while firing
  • Minimal spread

Cons

  • Ineffective in mid-long range combat (400 meters or more)
  • Cannot penetrate any shield
  • Shells still spread, although spread is still minimal

2. Damage per shot is not always equal to damage value displayed in-game, it represents damage dealt in one press of the fire button.


Accuracy By Distance

Below is the average percentage (%) of particles (per round) that hit an enemy robot (if aimed directly at) at specific ranges.

Range Accuracy %
100 meters or less 100%
150 meters 90%
200 meters 63%
250 meters 46%
300 meters 31%
350 meters 21%
400 meters 17%
450 meters 10%
500 meters 4%

Note: The numbers shown are based on an average-sized robot being targeted. Due to this, these percentages can be higher or lower depending on the size of the targeted robot.
