Introduction

The Spectre is a medium robot with 4 medium hardpoints.

Ability

The Spectre's ability is called Descend and when activated the robot cloaks (stealth) and jumps into the air.  The stealth effect lasts for 2 seconds when the Spectre lands. After the two seconds of Stealth after landing ends, the ability enters a 20-second cooldown phase.

The Descend ability is similar to the Inquisitor's, however the Spectre's stealth lasts only 2 seconds after landing (compared to 5 seconds with the Inquisitor).

Strategy

The Spectre is a "glass cannon," meaning it has high firepower "cannon" (4 medium hardpoints) but low hit points "glass."  Because of this, the Spectre should be used for ambush, mid-range support, or skirmishing.

By using its speed and ability and taking advantage of cover, the Spectre can avoid damage while dealing out devastating bursts.  Mid-range setups with Tulumbas, Wasp, Scourge, Atomizer, or Pulsar are recommended, or high burst Damage Per Second weapons such as Orkan, Cryo, Storm, Corona, or Vortex for ambushing.  For sustained DPS while skirmishing use Punisher-Ts or Tarans.

Due to being a hybrid of a jump and stealth, the Spectre’s stealth ability is considerably harder to use than a normal stealth ability, however with the right timing, it is effective. By making sure you jump into the right area (landing too far from cover makes you extremely vulnerable) and extending your stealth duration (try not to jump to high ground), the Spectre’s stealth ability is amazingly strong. The two seconds of stealth the Spectre has after its jump should be used to seek cover, as using it to maximize damage output will commonly result in the Spectre's small health pool being finished off.

Taking advantage of the Spectre's height advantage mid-jump without worrying about being hit is key to dealing maximum damage. Weapons requiring clear line of sight and timing for ambush tactics such as the Shocktrain go extremely well with the Spectre's Descend ability. 

Threat Measure

The Spectre is a high threat in the middle leagues but a low to moderate threat in the higher leagues due to its low hitpoints and the use of Quantum Radar by the enemy. 

Possible Setups

These setups are recommended for the Spectre:

Note: Each slot type is filled with only one particular weapon, for example. If a robot has 3 light hard points, all three of those slots are filled with the same weapon, as mixing weapons of the same slot type is not advisable.

Overview

The Spectre is best used for ambush, mid-range support, or skirmishing.  For mid-range support set ups with Tulumbas, Wasp, Scourge, Atomizer, or Pulsar are recommended, using the Spectre's ability to escape a dangerous situation. For ambushing the Spectre's Descend ability allows it to surprise targets or gain better shooting angles.  High burst Damage Per Second weapons such as Orkan, Cryo, Storm, Corona, or Vortex are recommended for this role. For sustained DPS while skirmishing use Punisher-Ts or Tarans.

Trivia

  • The Spectre was the first robot with four medium hardpoints that can all fire at once, the other robot that also has four medium hardpoints is the Leech.
  • This robot was very controversial when it was in the test server. It was perceived that four medium weapons able to fire all at once on one robot was too powerful
  • And indeed, it was very powerful, prior to HP nerfs that limited the power of Spectre. Pixonic describes the robot as a glass cannon. However, because of its ability, it's difficult to actually damage it
  • During testing, it was named "Exorcist". This name was later changed to "Spectre" because it was too controversial
  • Spectre has below average health for a medium robot in return for high firepower
  • The "Marvelous" skin may be a reference to Marvel's "Iron Man"
  • This robot was added on January 31, 2018.
  • the word "spectre" apparently means ghost.
