The Leo is a heavy robot with 1 heavy and 3 light hardpoints.


The Leo has slow ground speed but strong firepower with 1 heavy and 3 light hardpoints, and the third-highest durability in the game (only the Raijin and Invader have more). The combination of high firepower and high durability make the Leo a formidable bot in the lower-leagues and potentially in the mid-leagues. In higher leagues the Leo is less commonly run due to its lack of mobility and limited passive module slots.

Leo is good for brawling, area defense, and for holding beacons. In the lower leagues Leos are good for defending center beacon, especially on maps such as Yamantau and Dreadnought. Since it has one heavy and three light weapons Leo can also be used for mid-range and long-range support. When transitioning into the higher leagues, it is usually outclassed by other robots, but with highly upgraded Pilot skills, Module and a specialised Drone, the Leo can remain competitive even in Champion's League with its sheer durability and powerful loadout.

There aren't many module choices for the Leo, with only one passive module slot, and since the Leo is scrapped for better robots later on the commander can usually only afford Nuclear Reactor and Armor Kit when they have a Leo in their hangar. Nuclear Reactor should be chosen if the commander wishes to slightly increase their firepower and Armor Kit if they wish to remain in the battlefield for a slightly longer time. However, if the commander wishes to run the Leo in higher leagues, Balanced Unit is usually the best choice due to its combination of firepower and durability. For specialised purposes though, Overdrive Unit and Heavy Armor Kit are usually the best choices due to their significant increases in firepower and durability respectively. Thermonuclear Reactor is not advised over the Overdrive Unit as since the Leo is so durable, it can still remain in the game for a huge amount of time even when the Overdrive Threshold is reached.

Overall, Leo is a solid robot with excellent versatility. It is less specialized than other heavy robots, lacking the Fury, Butch, and Natasha’s firepower when compared with sniping and falling short of the Lancelot in head on brawling due to its durable physical plating and Rush abiliy, but the Leo is one of the very few robots that can be configured for literally any combat range, has very high durability and can remain a significant threat on the battlefield long into the game.

Possible Setups

These are effective setups for the Leo:

Note: When "Opt." is next to a slot type, it refers to one of the multiple options that can be used in combination with the other weapon(s) slot type(s).

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.

Leo can fill several different roles due to its hardpoint configuration and large health pool. If used for close-range an Avenger or Thunder, with 3 Gusts can allow for immense sustained burst damage, with the added ability to quickly deplete energy shields. Using an Ember can bypass shields entirely (the exceptions being the Aegis-class energy shield and Absorbers), and when paired with Magnums can pressure robots with energy shields, or Pinatas to help deal with physical shields. Using an Ancile ("Pothead Warrior") is commonly seen on close-range setups.

As a mid-range support unit, using a Dragoon or Zeus, with 3 Sparks or Gekkos can work very effectively. Sparks can work effectively for both close and mid-range setups, and using Gekkos allows for more range. Using a Trident with 3 Pins, while not as damaging as other mid-range setups, allows the Leo to pressure robots such as the Bulgasari and Lancelot from a distance.

Lastly, as a long-range sniper, using a Flux with 3 Gekkos can allow for sustained damage up to 1,100 meters away. With its large amount of health, the Leo can often outlast many other snipers. A Trebuchet can be used as well, however, the differing firing mechanics of the Gekko counteracts the Trebuchet.

Not Recommended

  • The use of the Nashorn is generally not recommended due to them being outclassed by the Trebuchet in burst damage and anti-shield capability, although it possesses higher DPS.
  • The use of Zenits and Noricums isn't recommended as the Natasha with the same weapons has more firepower, and snipers generally don't require as much health as the Leo.
  • The use of the Arbalest weapon isn't recommended or used much due to its very low damage, and it is outclassed by the Gekko, which is less expensive.

  • Leo's cockpit and thigh strongly resemble German battle tank Leopard 2's turret and hull.
  • This bot used to have the highest HP out of all the non-WP bots and the third-highest HP in the game.
  • The Leo, along with the Boa and Doc, has the shortest name of any robot in the game.
  • Sometimes, players calls Leos with an Ancile a "Pothead" Leo.
  • In an earlier version of the Leo, as well as other German bots, were designed with German WW2 crosses on hips and torso. These were removed due to political issues with some ex-USSR users.
  • Before update (unknown), when 3D viewing any robot, a Leo (with no equipment) would walk back and forth in front of the hangar door (the direction the robot being viewed at is facing), a Fury also could and still can be seen doing the same thing.
