The Pyro is a raider/riot jumping bot from the Jump/Specialist Plant.

Description[edit]

The Pyro is a cheap, fast walker with a flamethrower. The flamethrower deals increased damage to large units and can hit multiple targets at the same time. When killed, the Pyro sets surrounding units on fire. Additionally, Pyros also come with jetpacks, allowing them to jump over obstacles or get the drop on enemies.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

For its cost, the Pyro is a fragile raider. Once an enemy has been set on fire, the Pyro should jump away to safety while the flames do their work. This works even better if you are fighting near cliffs which the Pyro can jump over. Since the flamethrower can hit enemies more than once, the Pyro is effective against larger units and structures, as long as they can stay in range and survive.
