The Wasp is a corrosion-based auto-cannon capable of inflicting damage over time (DOT) for a duration of 5 seconds per round (129 damage/sec at level 1), like the light weapon Sting and the heavy weapon Viper, and drains a robot's health more effectively (on a per-round basis) than the other corrosion weapons.
The Wasp shares some similarities to the Sting, both being kinetic-based weapons and having a maximum range of 600 meters, but trades off the high rate of fire the Sting possesses for increased initial damage and increased corrosion damage per projectile. The Wasp has a similar firing pattern as the energy-based Dragoon (also shares the same range), however, the Wasp has a 12-second reload as opposed to the Dragoon's reload while firing ability. It deals a decent amount of damage at mid-range by itself but paired up with 2 or more of the same weapon can pose a serious threat to bots that depend on defense points, such as Leech or even Titans like Ao Ming.
Because of the small clip size and long reload time this weapon is not good against high burst damage weapons at close-range. In addition the weapon does not synergize well with drone weapon effects.
The Wasp has good synergy with the Sting but doesn’t match well with Viper due to range differences.
One build that has shown to be highly effective in a support role is the Ravana Wasp. It does good damage at 600 meters. When facing an enemy titan, the Ravana’s ability and large number of hit points give it decent staying power and the ability to escape when needed.
