Weapons and weapon selection are critical decisions for your your combat robot. Each robot has its own offensive strategy, and its own defensive strategy. Lifters have proven to be very successful offensive weapons. If you can flip the opposing bot over, you can destabilize their offensive and even win the match. Lifters are very effective against many difficult to defend against bots. Flipping becomes a serious attack and defense strategy, and one that is relatively easy to implement and less destructive to the bot. The Viper Lifter Weapon is an excellent strategy for your combat robot.
