The Rhino is a heavy robot with 2 medium and 2 light hardpoints.


This Rhino's ability is called Assault Mode.  When activated a physical shield deploys in front of the Rhino disabling its medium weapons and increasing its forward speed by 100%. In Assault mode the Rhino's upper torso rotation is limited to about 5 degrees and has a rotation speed of 5 degrees per second, while its lower part also has a rotation speed of 5 degrees per second but without any limits. Similar to the Écu, the Rhino's shield offers protection against energy and kinetic type weapons but does not block rocket (splash) type weapons.

Occasionally two Rhinos will charge headfirst into each other to bypass each other's shield reminiscent of actual rhinos fighting in real life.


The Rhino's health and firepower are only slightly above average, meaning that while the robot can hold its own, it will find itself struggling against robots such as the Ravana with more relevant abilities and a higher health pool and firepower.

The Rhino is vulnerable to medium-range splash weapons such as the Pin, Tulumbas, and Trident since the enemy can fire from safety and bypass its physical shield. When Assault Mode is activated, the Rhino's slow traverse speed also leaves it open to enemy flanking fire.

The Rhino is excellent for leading a charge to capture a beacon or engage a group of Reds, especially in short-range maps such as Shenzhen and Dead City. Capturing center beacon and continuing the assault straight into the enemy's home spawn area usually leads to the enemy being confused and having to change tactics.  

Since the Rhino will likely conduct close-range engagement and brawling, it is recommended to use weapons with high burst Damage Per Second, such as Pinatas and Orkans, or weapons with strong skirmishing capabilities such as Magnums and Tarans.  

Threat Measure

The Rhino's charge is similar to actual rhinos and is a powerful force when engaging head on making it a high threat in the lower leagues. However, due to its slow traverse speed and vulnerability to splash damage, the Rhino is a low threat in the middle-leagues. 

Possible Setups

Some effective builds for the Rhino are:

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.

The Rhino is usually used as a brawler and beacon capper, and is seldom equipped with mid-long range weapons. The use for long-range fire isn't recommended as it is outclassed by robots such as the Butch and Fury in this role.

Not Recommended

  • The use of Punishers and Punisher T weapons on the Rhino is not advised due to it being outclassed and outgunned by all the combinations listed above. However, one can use these as a cheap and relatively effective setup before they can purchase the recommended weapons.
  • The use of the Tulumbas and Pin isn't recommended due to the relatively low damage output and the Rhino's inability to jump.
  • Using long-range setups isn't advised due to the Rhino being best used as a close-range brawler and beacon capper. Long-range Rhino builds are often, if not always, outgunned by dedicated range robots such as the Fury.

  • This robot has a visible horn on its head, just like the rhino animal.
  • It has been noted that the heavy weapon, Nashorn, translates to 'Rhino'. As a result, some refer to the weapon by its old name, Kwk 448mm, to prevent confusion.
  • Despite previous claims of the Fury being the tallest bot, it has been disproven in Pixonic's height comparison chart, with the Rhino being the tallest (excluding the RoboDuck).
  • This robot, along with the Lancelot, are the slowest heavy robots in the whole game, at a maximum of 30 km/h, when no ability is taken into account.
  • However, the Rhino is also the fastest heavy robot, coming in at 60kph when in Assault Mode.
  • This robot is one of the 2 heavy robots that can deploy a shield, the other being the Raijin. (Britbots' shields are always active).
  • This robot was added on August 21, 2015.
  • When activating its ability, it's tower rotation is extremely slow.
  • Rhino is a few heavy robot that does not have heavy weapon slot
