- Combat robotics 2 technology now require Laser. (73856)
First com-bot is quite good. Price per punch is awesome especialy when used together with PLD combat suit(MK2 armor + 8PLD). Becouse of close range combat you can get whole 45seconds lifespan com-bot shooting. However, second robot, the static one is combat weak (when not moving, his lifespan expectancy on battllefield counts in low-seconds) more over he is too expensive. And now more over require laser tech. Currently useless.
It is logical that laser based bot need that tech, so its nice touch. Hower, the combat value of the robot need to be tuned.
I would recomend consider some of these :
a) spit-proof shell
b) limited speed, like a] pulse engine, 1 pulse per 2 seconds make quiick move 1tile b] slow move 5km/h
c) cut the production cost half, to make it more expendable
The last robot the lvl 3, is total waste of resources. Compare his price to atomic bomb. But lets improve com-bots slowly. One by one. No need to make them OP all at once.
