Overview



This information needs updating

The Radar Jammer allows the player to prevent their robot being detected by Enemy Radar. Jammers do not make robots invisible, and can still be spotted visually.

When the strength of the enemies radar exceeds the strength of your jammers, it will cause your robot to disappear from their radar at random intervals, but you will mostly be visible on their radar. If the combined strength of jammers on your robot exceed the combined strength of radar on the enemy, then your robot will remain undetected.

There are four tiers of Radar Jammers, each tier adding higher Jamming capabilities. Each tier of radar jammer increases in size and health. Thanks to their flat shape, jammers can fit under the hitbox of weapons placed on the same level of the robot. The disc shape and health value of jammers can be utilized as shielding on stealth craft and to reduce cube count and CPU. However this type of shield, due to the low Resistivity and Barrier Protection, is ineffective. But then again, who need radar invisibility when already being spotted and shot at?

Like the enemy radar, the Jammer has an animation. It initially remains still and silent, however when it's in range of an enemy's radar it generates a 'honk' sound and begins rotating. It will continue rotating until you're no longer in enemy radar range.

The code suggests that the max number of radar jammers that can be used is 14. (You can place more, but they do not help.)

Tips and Tricks



This information needs updating

A Radar Jammer can be the most useful tool available to a robot. If you can not be seen on radar, it opens up a vast array of strategic options. One of the main applications of jammers is to hide a robot from enemy detection and ambush the enemy using hit and run tactics to deliver unexpected damage without risking damage in return. Other uses involve the use of stealth to flank enemies, and sneakily capture points, fusion towers or the protonium reactor.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Radar jammer model is based off of the RP Collector, and uses the exact same model, just with a different texture.
  • There are used to be a Tier 1 Radar Jammer, however it's removed from the game. In the statistics page it is given a name Concealer.
