The Convict is a fairly standard construction bot with a twist: a light shield to defend itself and support allied shieldbots.
Tactics and Strategy
Besides its primary duty as a constructor, the Convict's shield has many uses in combat. From protecting your Bandits in early raids, to building Lotuses inside the range of enemy Pickets, to recharging the shields of allied combat units, the utility of the Convict is exceptional. It's also a reasonably efficient constructor for its cost.
