Battle usage[edit | edit source]

The ion distorter and Destabilizer are purely short-range weapons, with a giant spread and the projectiles disappearing after a short distance. For this reason, ion bots are almost always fast, with lots of thrusters and light armour.

Your bot should use hoverblades or sprinter legs for a more agile playstyle, with a few SMGs as a backup weapon. As for modules, almost every module can suffice to help except from the disc shield, as ions are designed to be stealthier than other bots so will rely on surprise rather than defenses in a battle.

Also, ions have a huge recoil when fired, so your bot can be propelled by this.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ion Distorters were added in the Ghosts In The Machine Update on the 14th April 2016.
  • When fired, the front half of the gun recoils backwards, and slides back to the original position after a small amount of time.
  • The shots are fired in the shape of a hexagon.
