Description

The Blitz is a high-tech raider. Its weapon, a lightning gun, deals mostly paralyze damage. This way, the Blitz can disable turrets, waltz through the defensive line, and proceed to level the economic heart of the opponent's base.

Tactics and Strategy

The Blitz often outperforms most other raiders in battle for a variety of reasons. 1st, since the Blitz has so much HP compared to other raiders, it can more easily survive battles against other raiders long enough for it to retreat home for repairs. 2nd, its lightning gun fries individual Glaives in a single shot, and leaves most other raiders paralyzed after a single shot.

However, the Blitz's lightning gun overkills much cheaper and faster scouts like Fleas and Darts, so you may opt to counter Blitzes with them (in addition to using riot units like Reavers or Maces).

As a Cloakbot player, it might be better to counter Blitzes with Knights instead of Reavers, since not only do Knights have more health, and deliver more damage-per-shot, than both Blitzes and Reavers, they also do more EMP damage-per-shot than Blitzes. Therefore, in an even match between Knights and Blitzes, Knights will most likely come out on top of the more frail Blitzes.
