Description

The Venom is an all-terrain unit designed to paralyze enemies so other units can easily destroy them. It moves particularly fast for a riot unit and in addition to paralysis it does a small amount of damage. Works well in tandem with the Recluse to keep enemies from closing range with the fragile skirmisher.

Strategy and Tactics[edit]

The Venom's stun is very powerful, and can keep units stunlocked very effectively, which makes it a powerful addition to any spiderball. Because of the stun, a few Venoms can leave many enemy units defenseless against any attacks.

Aim for clusters of enemies, as the small splash radius can be exploited better, stunning many enemy units.

The Venom is fast enough to close range on skirmishers.
