|Turn Rate (deg/s)||140|
|Vision Radius (elmo)||560|
The Bolas is a second option of raider for the hovercraft factory. Named uniquely a "heavy-raider" it is one of the more expensive ground raiders. It wields a slow pulse beam and excels at one-on-one engagements, but is somewhat fragile for its cost.
Tactics And Strategy
The Bolas is capable of dispatching many units in one-on-one engagements, even the direct-counter ones like riots. As such, the Bolas should never be faced with a lone unit/lower numbers. The key to defeating a group of Bolases comes down to a few options:
- Overwhelm them with numbers;
- Fight them at a great range/disadvantageous terrain (as all hovercraft struggle with hills);
- Create an opening using disabling methods like Imps, Racketeers or Outlaws;
- Use a bait, like Dirtbags or Halberds.
While using the Bolas yourself, remember to group up several of them for greater results. Whittle down your opponent with hit-and-run, accumulating the slow-effect on their units, and allowing the Bolases or other troops to finish the enemy off.
