War Robots update 3.8 is full of excitement. This update brings pilots a new large robot that is very similar to the Griffin, 2 new long range energy weapons, a completely new game mode, and a brand new map! On top of all this, War Robots announced a special anniversary event that promises to give players lots of swag.
Update 3.8 brings us the Carrier Map. This map is actually a ship in the middle of the ocean and is perfect for close range warfare. It offers many corridors and tunnels for brawler type battle. Above the tunnels is plenty of open space for long range game play. Don’t fall off the edge! Falling into the ocean will be the last thing you ever do.
The Griffin has been the favorite of many pilots, especially those who don’t have dash bots yet. War Robots has considered our love of the Griffin and made us a faster, stronger, jumpier Griffin… The Raven. The Raven brings us a new ability… Double Jump. This robot is able to jump twice before cool-down and can even jump midair! The Raven is the only new robot of Update 3.8 but it is certainly an exciting release.
Ballista is the new medium hardpoint energy weapon. With a range of 1100m and quick discharge, this weapons is perfect for long range attack. It acts much like it’s big brother the Trebuchet, but has a faster reload time. Check out our guide to the Ballista.
Flux is the new heavy slot long range energy weapon. This laser weapon can hit a target anywhere on the map. It discharges slowly and requires that you are out of cover for a longer period of time. Just likes its little brother the Gekko, the Flux ignores energy shields.
