NEW ROBOT: SKYROS
A well-protected model capable of transforming into a ball for increased mobility and Defence. Features 1 light, 1 medium, and 1 heavy weapon slots that are only active while in attack mode. Almost impenetrable for ordinary weapons while in high-speed mode.
Skyros can be extremely dangerous in combination with close-range weapons due to its ability to dictate the distance of a fight. However, using the high-speed mode on Skyros may become suboptimal if the enemy packs defence-ignoring or DoT-heavy builds.
NEW WEAPONS: CUDGEL, MACE, HAMMER
Shotgun-type guns with explosive rounds that deal area damage. Targets affected by the explosion accumulate BLAST effect potentially receiving additional damage.
NEW ITEMS IN WORKSHOP
Starting with the Anniversary Expo event, these items will become available in the Workshop:

Also this drone:
And these pilots will be available in the Training Centre:

- Jad Parkes (Erebus)
- Ricardo Gonzales
NEW PILOTS: THESEUS, EDDIE NOLL
Theseus: When in high-speed mode, Skyros’ defence bonus cannot be mitigated by any weapons except for damage from Corrosion.
A reckless fighter still staying in the ranks with the help of first-class surgery. Lost much of his organic body and all his previous bots trying to save teammates in unsuccessful fights. Takes pride in his prosthetic limbs and implants, signing them with names of those companions-in-arms he was able to rescue.
Eddie Noll: Fire rate of all shotgun-type weapons is increased by 10%.
He wouldn’t even get to pilot a combat bot if not for a video game about surfing. Back on Mars, he dreamed of once seeing ocean waves for real. After countless hours of hard work and many dangerous fights as a merc, he found his way to Earth. Nothing can stop Eddie from enjoying his holidays now, not even the aftermath of the Cataclysm that forced humans to flee the planet in the first place.
NEW TURRET: GRAVITY AMPLIFIER
The turret creates a gravitational anomaly around the target, slowing everyone in proximity. The longer the enemies stay in the affected area, the slower they move. Eventually, all affected targets get locked-down. The anomaly cannot be countered with any anti-control effects.
SUPPLY LINE REWORK
Before 8.0, bonus resources received via the Supply Line were limited to Silver. Starting with this update, you receive a random amount of a random resource — several times a day. The bonus can now include Gold, Platinum, Silver, Keys, and Power Cells.
One supply drop unlocks automatically each day. You can claim it in the Supply Center window. You can unlock additional supply drops by watching video ads. The amount of additional drops is limited.
Note that there are several categories of resource packs. The most lucrative ones have a lower chance to drop. Claimed prizes, however, are removed from the pool for the day, meaning you get better chances to claim rarer prizes with each subsequent try.
We have completed a visual and technical overhaul of this iconic map. Most of the map’s components were reworked from scratch and you can now enjoy a fresh look and enhanced graphics on all three quality presets.
UPDATED BEACON LAYOUT
Beacons on Springfield, Dead City and Shenzhen were renamed for the sake of consistency. Here are the updated layouts.
WEYLAND REWORK, JAEGER TWEAKS
Starting with this update, Weyland can move while using its repair ability. Now you can support those teammates who always run away!
To keep Weyland’s stats in line with other T3 robots, we have reduced its repair radius: 100m → 80m.
We have also updated ability mechanics on Jaeger. The robot will not stop moving when switching from one ability state to another.
