Locust

From Open Perpetuum


Description

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

Locust

The gist of our firearm-wielding force. A swarm of Locusts can quickly shred enemy groups, but their specialized framework increases their survivability in solo engagements too.

Common uses

Locust is a little underappreciated to say the least. It is a little slow and while it can be tanky, only 4 leg slots reduce it's tanking potential considerably. What it can do exceptionally well however, is be sneaky in pvp, boasting masking equal to a light ewar bot. 5 head slots also allow it to carry some decent damage mods or ewar.

MK2

There is no MK2 variation of Syndicate bots
