The Rocko is a skirmisher bot from the Cloaky Bot Factory.

Description[edit]

The Rocko's low damage, low speed unguided rockets are redeemed by their range. They are most effective in a line formation, firing at maximum range and kiting the enemy. Counter them by attacking them with fast units which can close range and dodge their missiles.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

Compared to most other skirmishers the Rocko has less range, but is very cheap and inflicts more damage for its cost. Furthermore, unlike most skirmishers the Rocko's projectile travels horizontally rather than arcing, so they cannot fire past each other effectively. Therefore, good positioning is essential for Rockos to fire uninterrupted, and to avoid losing many Rockos at once to area-of-effect attacks.
