Lethal Company Robot strategy and location

I think the rockets are a bit overtuned

Alongside the Butler, the Robot is a new entity in Lethal Company introduced in the Version 50 update. The new enemy is a hulking mechanical robot with a giant spotlight for a face. It will slowly walk around hunting players, but once it finds them will immediately enter combat mode. Here’s how to deal with fighting the Robot in Lethal Company and where you can find them.

How to Kill the Robot in Lethal Company

Unfortunately, the Robot seems to be a little overturned right now. The Robot will slowly walk around step-by-step when in its passive state. But as soon as it notices you and enters its aggressive state, will hunker down and start spamming rockets at you. If you get close enough, it will also start engulfing you in flames with its flamethrower.

At the moment, the rocket spam is a bit much. As in, immediately after it fires one, it will start firing the next. When the rockets hit their destination they explode dealing massive area-of-effect damage which is oftentimes enough to kill you in one shot, not to mention you will have more coming your way. It’s also easy to aggro more than one Robot oftentimes, which is almost impossible to defend against.

The best strategy for fighting Robots is to kite them around using your Jetpack. While it is possible to kill them after about 20 hits with the Shovel, you’re almost always better off just kiting them around using the Jetpack. Get them to an area where you can quickly line-of-sight them from the location you are headed, then quickly blast off with your Jetpack and put something between you and the Robot.

On the Artifice Moon, there are a ton of warehouses with flippable switches that raise and lower the warehouse doors. You can use this to your advantage to lure the Robot into the warehouse then quickly close the doors behind it, locking it inside.

As a side note, the Robots deadly rocket barrage will hit other enemies as well, so you can try to use Robots take out other challenging enemies that may be giving you a tough time.

Where to find the Robot

For now, it seems as though the Robot may only spawn on the three new moons. Here is where you can find the Robot entity:

  1. 68-Artifice (Guaranteed)
  2. 5-Embrion (Guaranteed)
  3. 20-Adamance (Common)

Also, on the two moons where the Robot is guaranteed to spawn, Artifice and Embrion, have a ton of Robot enemies. An overwhelming amount, even. I have a feeling the rocket spam of the Robot will be nerfed soon, but until then you may want to tread carefully when hunting down the Robot on Artifice and Embrion.
