Game Info[]

Ultimate military unit of the Information Era. Upgrades from the Modern Armor. Requires Uranium Uranium.

  • Common abilities:
    • Can Move After Attacking
    • No Defensive Terrain Bonuses

Strategy[]

The Giant Death Robot is the battle machine of the future and the toughest unit in the game - a towering mass of guns, rockets, and futuristic death rays. It is one and a half times as strong as the next-strongest land units (the Modern Armor and the XCOM Squad) and can attack anything, including cities, with little fear of being outmatched. Also, the Giant Death Robot can move after attacking, making it one of the most strategically flexible units in the game. Although it doesn't benefit from defensive terrain, its simple brute strength serves to compensate.

Despite all these perks, the Giant Death Robot is most certainly not invincible. Being a melee attacker, it is susceptible to focused ranged attack (especially aerial bombardment). If it is close to the coast, a Carrier strike group can cause severe damage, both from the Carrier's aircraft and ranged attacks from the accompanying Battleships/Missile Cruisers...and because it is a land unit, the Giant Death Robot will be unable to retaliate. It can also be easily mobbed by large groups of lesser units. With all this in mind, the robot should never be sent alone. However, the Giant Death Robot can defeat many units single-handedly, and with the support of other powerful late-game units (XCOM Squad/Modern Armor/Mechanized Infantry) world conquest is almost inevitable.

Finally, keep in mind that you need Uranium Uranium to build the Giant Death Robot. If you intend to make them the backbone of your military, minimize the number of Nuclear Plants and nukes built to save more Uranium Uranium for the robots.

Civilopedia entry[]

The "mech" is a giant bipedal mechanical robot armed with a variety of missiles, Gatling gun arms, laser-beam eyes and a deadly kung-fu punch. Although not currently found on the modern battlefield, no doubt across the world governments and evil corporations are secretly developing these metal behemoths even as we speak. When these mechs come into service, all of the world's other weaponry will become obsolete, and humanity's fate will be decided by a climactic battle between armies of good and evil mechs in the streets of downtown Tokyo. (Assuming that the giant radioactive monsters don't get us first.)
