Introduction

The Storm is a close to mid-range (up to 500 meters, with a 75-meter optimal range) medium kinetic weapon.

Strategy

This shotgun functions similarly to the Gust and the Thunder due to bullet spread and the reload-while-firing mechanic. This makes it essentially a medium version of the Gust and Thunder since it acts like them in many ways, and should be played similarly to them.

The Storm can bring down Ancile shields very effectively, due to most (if not all) of the projectiles hitting the Ancile, due to the large size of the shield. It can also destroy physical shields (such as Ecus) very quickly, due to double damage done to physical shields by kinetic weapons. It can severely maim, if not destroy, a heavy robot as it is larger and can catch the bullets. With a fire rate of 1.4 rounds per second and the ability to reload while firing, it can do very heavy damage in a brief amount of time at close range. The reload time is fast enough that the Storm can be fired continuously far beyond the actual shell capacity.

Due to bullet spread, this weapon should be treated as a knife fighting weapon with effective ranges of 200 meters or less, even though the maximum range is 500 meters. Like the other shotguns, the robot with this weapon needs to get in close range to deal maximum damage. Thus, it is important to use shielding or cover to minimize damage to your robot as you try to get into close range.

This weapon is recommended to be equipped on robots capable of quickly approaching enemies, so as to fully utilize the Storm's firepower. For example, the Storm is commonly seen on Ravanas, as its Transcendence ability allows for the Ravana to quickly approach and disengage from enemies without fear of getting shot.

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 in very good DPS
  • Reloads while firing

Cons

  • Ineffective in mid-long range combat (300 meters range or more)
  • Cannot penetrate any shield
  • Shells spread out and cause shotgun to deal less damage then intended
