The Tick is an EMP bomb from the Cloaky Bot Factory.

Description[edit]

The Tick relies on its speed and small size to dodge inaccurate weapons, especially those of assaults and many skirmishers. It can paralyze heavy units or packs of lighter raiders which cannot kill it before it is already in range. Warriors or Glaives can then eliminate the helpless enemies without risk. Counter with defenses or single cheap units to set off a premature detonation. This unit cloaks when otherwise idle.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

The Tick is best used defensively - it is easier to kill a stunned enemy within your territory than within the enemy's.
