I am not always active on the wiki, but you'll see me working with Icefirephoenix, Lion10903, Cactus Gamer123, F0XTRAUT, Killroy1080 and Piisfun to maintain the wiki, help users and implement the rules :)

I also used to work alongside the now semi-inactive MKsmashed and Alias3002.

We do our best to keep the wiki a fun, safe and informative space.

If you have a question, idea or interesting conversation topic, don't hesitate to ask!

I am also active on the WR wiki Discord under the same username along with several other wiki users such as MKsmashed (Le Ban Hammer), Lion (Mortal Engines), Piisfun, Icefirephoenix and Claudius, IDSMTG, FOXTRAUT, CactusGamer123 and more.

Pre-redesign Boa...the best looking robot in my opinion

Walking Toaster Golurk out.








Introduction:

Hi there everyone! I am Golurk 88 (AKA BB Gun) and I hope you enjoy or appreciate my contributions to this cool wiki. My role in the wiki is the monitoring of user contributions and discussions, advice on how to use heavy, silver and other niche robots in the game as well as tips on robot builds and strategy.

I also came up with the idea of having a 'Possible Setups' section for each robot page, which Icefirephoenix and I worked on for quite a while. Finally, I overhauled and am the self-appointed sentinel of the Cancelled Robots, Weapons and Game Features page to maintain its new and more organised format.

When I joined: I actually joined the wiki in early 2018 as an ordinary user but over a couple of years was promoted to discussion mod, then content mod and now admin :)

I do my best to be friendly but spam, profile copying, swearing, threats or vandalism of pages will end up with me using my powers to the furthest extent to stop the rule-breaking (hint: near-infinite bans).

Blogs:


This was my speciality on the wiki. While other users have created some user blogs, we all do them on different topics (e.g Piisfun on templates and coding and Icefirephoenix on updates). My blogs are on many different robots and weapons as well as in-battle and general strategy. I've also made some blogs about the wiki. Enjoy!

Note: Don’t copy my blogs or the unique blog ideas. Expect trouble if you do (excluding general ideas like guides for bots, obviously).

If you read any of my blogs, remember that they did have many comments before I changed my username, and for some reason they didn’t register :(      (E.g I had 138 on my Abilities blog).

Please take care that a significant number of my blogs have incorrect damage/health/speed/cooldown statistics due to subsequent buffs/nerfs by Pixonic. However, general strategy and bot/weapon usage advice remains the same.

Please tell me if you have any cool ideas!

My Hangar:

Over the past 4-5 years when I played War Robots my hangar has gone through many significant upgrades, acquisitons and changes. Past hangar robots/setups have been mentioned in my Top 10 Achievements section down below.

Current Situation: As War Robots is now pay-to-win and player unfriendly, Stage 2 of my Hangar Upgrade Plan has been shelved, probably indefinitely. I very rarely play War Robots now because...well, you all know why and play a lot more WoT Blitz and World of Warships.

As a result of the above all the statistics listed below are correct and will likely remain so for a long time.

I was in Diamond I when I stopped playing but it is highly likely that I would end up in Diamond III or even Gold I should I start playing again due to most of my robots and weapons either being unexceptional or obsolete.

Role: Weapon Damage Suppression, Support, Light Ambusher

Status: Current

Modules: Lock-down ammo, Nuclear Reactor


Rhino (level 7): Orkan (level 7), Orkan (level 7), Pinata (level 6), Pinata (level 6)

Hall of Fame:

This is a list of users who I either admire, will remember for funny reasons or have a good opinion on them. Please do not take this personally if you aren’t on here, as I haven't updated this list for quite a while and many users have since left the wiki.

Notice: This isn’t in order.


Alias3002: Definitely the best Admin this wiki has had. Great to talk to about WoT and other fun stuff as well.

Icefirephoenix and Piisfun: I haven’t talked to them as much as I did with Alias but they both seem reasonable, sociable and are awesome at templates. Sad to see the latter leave the wiki.

MKsmashed: A relatively new mod but is well-suited for the role, and is quite popular and very encouraging to normal users. Quite friendly as well.

Ragnarok Ghost: Upon joining the wiki he was slightly sensitive and temperamental but has become a fun guy to talk with and has provided consistently good ideas for the wiki. His only flaw is his tendency to be slightly oversensitive sometimes.

Cooldude87 and CactusGamer: "Always cheerful, talkative and helpful (when active). The former has fixed several broken or abandoned category pages"

Killroy: "This guy has done more than anyone else to help the wiki after the migration to the new UCP."

Lion and Guard: Neither of them are often active anymore and I didn’t talk to them that much because of that( Guard has retired) but they both seemed like relaxed and funny people.

Tkik: Founder of the wiki. That alone is enough.

Defender: Being a WoT Expert and a promising narrator for Pokemon/tank nature documentaries, Defender is great to talk to.

JustAnotherNickname: Not many users will remember him and personally I never talked to him (as back then I was ghosting) but he seemed like a nice, popular and reasonable dude.

Claudius, GD-2 Predator and SpoonyBard: Who doesn’t love daily nonsensical spam on their message walls? They might seem odd at first but they were definitely full of humour. They shall always be remembered by their comrades in the motherland.

HDIOS: One of the most cranky, Raijin-loving and Orkan-hating users in the wiki’s history, and is always ready to have a good debate. Are those qualities necessarily bad though?

22hessler, Ericon Finalez, Cozzgamer, Hiawee and Spinovoid: Always there to talk to about random stuff...Cozzgamer with his complex life and Spinovoid always has a prank up his sleeve.

0CORE0: Always ready to contribute to User Ideas with cool new stuff.

FOXTRAUT: "An all-round firm yet amicable guy"

I didn’t spend money in this game: May seem like your ordinary user but is almost-always active and is very sociable.

Sky Avenger: His profile picture being a character from Pixel Gun 3D, you can be assured that he is legit XD

Juggernaut: A wiki veteran, Jug has been here since the days of JAN and has regularly been active on the wiki, even during the dark times (when we had no admin). Oh, and he has an Ostrich Death Conga as his profile picture.

S220129 and GimoStudio: "Their fun-loving and childish personalities + arguments have left their mark..."

My Top 10 Achievements in WR:

Note: They are not in order

  • Getting 4 kills in a Thunder/Punisher T Boa out of my 8 kills in one match, whilst breaking my damage record! (4 kills in a Boa, 8 kills overall and new damage record...I couldn't have asked for more!)
  • Single-handedly killing an Orkan Spectre (who attacked me using Descend) in my Taran Fujin before going on to ambush and take out a Taran Spectre.
  • Killing a Double Thunder Natasha in a Tulumbas/Magnum Rhino, capping a beacon before killing a circling Thunder Carnage only by using my Magnums with my shield up.
  • Killing a Double Thunder Natasha in my Thunder Raijin, capping a beacon, then killing that player's other Double Thunder Natasha when it spawned on the beacon before I captured it. (Poor Double Thunder Natasha)
  • Getting through Bronze and low Silver leagues with : Thunder/Punisher/Noricum Vityaz, Kang-Dae/Punisher T/Pinata Golem, Molot/Molot/Molot/Molot GI Patton and later a Nashorn/Punisher T Boa (all my gear at that time was lvl 3-5)
  • Getting into Gold League and surviving (for the moment) against the army of Dash Bots (with Shocktrains/Orkans etc) and Lancelots with my non P2W stuff (no money spent on this game for me, just a lot of saving up!)
  • Almost single-handedly killing a Zeus Fury in a Taran Fujin!
  • Single-handedly killing a Thunder Fury and Thunder/Taran Inquisitor (both full health) in 10 seconds with my Thunder Raijin on TDM
  • Killing an enemy Carnage, Natasha, Hover, Lancelot and Fujin...in my Taran Fujin
  • Coming 2nd and dealing over 1 million damage in Skirmish FFA (the first time I've ever done well in FFA)

Things I enjoy about WR and the Wiki:

  • Teamwork
  • Coordination
  • Tactics and strategies that require some skill (not pay to win)
  • Close combat brawling
  • Interesting and effective builds
  • Winning through teamwork, coordination and skill (well deserved wins)
  • Just having fun
  • Battle fought to the last (only if we win)
  • Crushing enemy robots through sheer firepower (especially in my Thunder Raijin)
  • Crazy and chaotic brawls involving several teammates and enemy players (about 2-3 each side!)
  • Spawn raiding the enemy team in battles
  • Beacon Rush
  • Fun battles where everyone is in Destriers or Cossacks etc
  • Annoying other players every so often in a Zenit Butch (I actually get some kills in it when I use it, but I do backpack and after a few minutes, I will usually change into another of my robots to help my team.)
  • Killing Pay to Win noobs who are devoid of any tactical skill whatsoever but rely on their overpowered and expensive gear. That gives me a lot of pleasure!
  • Buying new stuff to complete an awesome build I've been patiently saving up for
  • Fujins, Raijins, Rhinos, and Leos
  • Interesting debates and talking on threads
  • A lot of other stuff

Things I Don't Enjoy About WR and the Wiki

This is mostly things I don’t like in WR, but also a few irritating things on the wiki:

  • Pay to win players without skill who rely on their overpowered gear (e.g Orkan Spectres)
  • Teammates who self-destruct all their robots until they reach their last one because they're tankers
  • Players who can be a liability e.g getting in your way and blocking your shots or not capping nearby beacons
  • Dash Bots except the Kumiho
  • Being meched out early in the match
  • RDBs
  • Trollers
  • Anything with 3 or more orkans
  • Shocktrains
  • Canyon Map
  • Snipers who contribute little to the game except irritation (they should backpack instead of camp)
  • Teammates who ignore neutral beacons right next to them (there was once a Trebuchet Carnage on Springfield map who was literally camping just next to our left beacon on the dam...I had to cap it instead in my Leo as he ignored my signal shots...a LEO!)
  • Pixonic breaking the economy by making everything extremely expensive to get and to upgrade...also by increasing production times on WSP 2.0.
  • Users constantly saying that Zenits/Noricum/Écus are overpowered and that the Shutze is the best bot in the game. Especially with the latter. Yes, Shutze should be returned to the game...but when you’re talking about real advice and meta setups, I couldn’t care less about the Shutze. It’s a crap bot only for beginners and as a nostalgic display in one’s inventory.
  • Ranters who don't contribute anything except complaints
  • Having my profile copied
