I Robot

Where are all the robots? If the engineers can make all these cool robots why are there not any hanging around the various stations. They would make excellent guards and why not automatic cannon etc.   :mrgreen:

I guess thats a question of resources, all robots and perimetric guns are needed at the front, not in the shelters

So ...What's the name again of the 'tin man' (Giant Robot) that 314 creates for you in the fifth challenge? I can't remember ... I do remember the damn thing was pretty useless, it only lasted for about a third of the street for me ...

The Lightning.

@Bot, like you, I would just hop in it to activate it (required to complete quest) and then immediately hop back out of it and walk up the street.

I learnt that after the first time  :oops:  ... I thought WOW a super big baddass robot, Ooooohh ... Yeah Right ... Fu***ng thing was useless ... After that I did the same thing, activate it to complete the quest, then leave the useless thing behind ... It WOULD be cool though if the thing was 'Spiritually Linked' through 'Arcane Nano Infusers' to you're character, and actually took on some of you're skills/strengths/abilities AND Character Level, so that it was more useful

You know...the first time with my first character, I found myself remarking about "these guys are COMPLETE badd-asses...look how much of a pounding they are taking from this freakin' thing!!!  Boy, am I glad this sucker was here...."

Of course, when I ran the section again for XP and drops, I figured I'd play for a bit more of a challenge and not use it....wow, what an epiphany that was.  "That thing is a complete waste of programmers' and devs' time!!!"

The next few times I cleared the street, ran back to the 'bot, ran up to the disembarkment point and then completed the test.  Someone had to tell me that you could voluntarily exit the thing without "failing" the test.  Yippie!!

Of course the point was if they are so short handed and do not have enough foot solders robots and automatic cannon would free up guards for the front. It would all so be cool to have robots moving about the stations at least they would be more friendly than the human residents. Most of the stations are sparsely populated as I think Hellgate was never designed for single player! :oops:

hahaha dude.. worked for me almost exactly the same way
with the difference that i thought what a weak pos.. after it exploded when i got stuck in a bus station or something.. so, i thought the quest is ruined now anyways and logged...
next time i thought: how hard are those suckers really? and wiped the street in very few minutes.
then i went and got the robot.. exploded again.. overlooked TWO mobs..
yeah..

there were quite a few of those experiences i had with hgl.
i am really happy the old dev crew's gone and the that the project seems to be in skilled hands for once.
