Assaultrons are a type of robot encountered in Appalachia.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Assaultron robot was constructed by RobCo and sold to the U.S. military as a frontline wartime combatant, and to the Whitespring Resort as security robots. It is fast and deadly at close range and employs a devastating laser at a distance. The dominator variant can also use stealth technology.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

In terms of design, the Assaultron is a durable, agile robot intended for melee combat. To that end, it was designed using proven reliable technologies. The Assaultron is equipped with actuators, chain-powered limbs, and covered in thick armor plating. Modular arms allow for swapping it's loadout with weaponry most appropriate for the mission profile. The Assaultron's standard weapon is a combination of claws and blades. Its legs are powered by a combination of hydraulic actuators and springs. This allows it to move upon its foes quickly and unleash a devastating melee chain attack. The crown jewel is the head laser, mounted in its center and capable of devastating the opposition when fully charged. The thick armor plating surrounding the red lens distracts enemies from the optical receptors concealed at the top of the head.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

An Assaultron's head houses an incredibly powerful laser that requires charging up before being fired. The Assaultron's face will become surrounded by red electric energy when it is charging its laser attack, after which, a potent laser beam will be unleashed, causing severe damage.

The Assaultron's weak points are their legs. If destroyed, they will continue to pursue their target by crawling on the ground. After taking sufficient damage, they will charge a potentially deadly explosion as a last desperate attempt to eliminate the target. Killing them before they can activate it will result in a normal death. On lower levels, they can be challenging to face head-on due to their fast speed and powerful attacks. A low-level player character may have difficulties killing or crippling the Assaultron before it's able to get into melee range or charge its lethal laser attack.
