Introduction

The Hellburner is a medium robot with a heavy and a light hardpoint.

Ability

Hellburner's unique ability is named Overload. Upon activation the bot receives a 100% speed boost for 5 seconds (120 kph at top speed), then detonates, dealing tremendous damage to all enemies (see table) within 75 meters while also dealing a fixed amount of damage to itself in the process (12.5% of max durability). This damage is applied equally to all robots and shields in range.

Upon death the ability activates regardless of charge status, dealing half the amount of damage as a normal burst. This includes dying from its own ability.

Strategy

Hellburner has relatively high health for a medium robot to compensate for its ability. Hellburner is best used to attack enemies grouped closely defending a position, or to ram into and "hug" a single bot to destroy it. Because of its ability, Hellburner often causes enemy robots to spread out and give up a position (or a beacon), or allow squad mates to push into undefended areas.

Good Hellburner pilots will use the bot to do corner shooting and to flank and brawl reds without having to use its ability. Hellburner is often used as an opener in Beacon games to cap center beacon at the start of the battle.

Using the ability too often is not recommended as it also damages the player as well as the enemy. Given the ability's relatively short range of 100 meters, pilots must be careful to keep enemies nearby or risk damaging only themselves. Using the ability solely for faster movement is not recommended as the Hellburner already has a relatively fast speed.

The Hellburner is especially effective against AresHades and Nemesis groups, as they rely on banding close together to make use of their Absorber shields, which allows the Hellburner's explosion to damage multiple bots.

Threat Measure

Hellburner is considered a beacon capper and support unit, and is a moderate threat to more durable bots. However, given its self-destructive nature and lack of significant firepower the Hellburner can be easily dealt with by vigilant pilots.

Trivia

  • When Overloading, the Hellburner can boost into the fastest robot in the game at 120 Km/h at lv 12, allowing it to easily run down any other bot. Even Dash bots struggle to escape, they must hold their dash until the last second to avoid being caught and exploded
  • This robot's speed makes it difficult to manage around ledges
  • The Hellburner's weapons can get blown off by its own explosion if it's on low enough HP
  • A Hellburner with a Thermite and an Aphid can be considered as a "double nuke" due to the fact that the missiles and Overload, if used properly, can deal catastrophic damage to a target
  • The Hellburner is one of a few bots in the game that are able to deal damage without weapons, the others being the Mercury, the Pantheon pack robot and the Dragon bots. Blitz and Rayker can also do damage, although it is too little to be much of a threat.
  • This robot was added on March 14, 2018.
