Helix

From Open Perpetuum
Description

Derived from reverse engineered Nian tech, this human-made derivative is cheap but not as effective as native models.

Helix

The Helix is a good all-rounder when it comes to electronic warfare. While it may not be the toughest bot around, combining a light chassis with an assault-class undercarriage affords it a unique loadout.

Common uses

Helix is a very niche bot in the meta. It's not as fast or durable as others and not even as stealthy. Only thing that it has going for it is unique EW optimal range bonus which can help it catch another bot or do a first strike on another Ewar bot, and an incredibly small surface hit size, smallest in the game in fact. Those things can help it survive but it is easily outmatched by others in most situations. It is curiously, the only bot that has a primary requirement skills that doesn't give it any bonus ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
