I’ve just installed the game, what do I now?

  • When you play Robocraft, you have the choice of building a robot, modifying an existing robot in your garage (you get one for starters), battle against other robots or view fan-made robots in the Community Robot Factory (CRF).

I have a great idea for a robot but I don’t have any or enough of the right parts

  • If you’re looking for a particular robot part, you can create it in the ‘Cube Forge’ (press F on your keyboard in any of the game areas except when in a battle).
  • If you already own the part but it is used on another robot in your garage, you will need to remove it from the other robot to free it up.

How do I get more robot parts?

  • You can get more parts by making them in the Cube Forge.

How do I improve my robot?

  • In Robocraft whenever you take part in matches or log-in you earn Robits which allows you to forge parts that you apply to your robot.

What does premium membership offer?

  • Being a premium member bestows the following benefits:
    • Double experience points (XP) which allows players to level up twice as fast in-game.
    • Gain access to the full palette of 16 colours instead of the standard 4; this will allow you to customise your robots even more.
    • Triple recycle rates while premium is active
    • Upload your own personal profile picture
    • Cosmetic upgrade to robot select and edit screens
  • Premium subscription can be purchased in 1 day, 3 day, 7 day, 30 day, 90 day and Lifetime increments.

What are the rewards for playing games?

  • Players are rewarded with Robits at the end of each battle – the amount rewarded is related to your end-of-battle score.

 

How do I fight against other players?

  • To play against other players you need to play one of the multiplayer game modes: Team Deathmatch, BRAWL, Battle Arena, League Arena or Custom Game.

How is a game score worked out in matches?

  • Player kills, assists and objective captures all influence a player’s score in matches, and these are reflected on the in-game leaderboard.
  • We have plans to make Robocraft’s scoring system more transparent in future updates as part of a drive to make the game more welcoming to new players while at the same time not sacrificing any tactical complexity..

How can I play battle games with my friends?

  • If you’ve a bunch of like-minded battle-hungry friends, you can create a party of up to five members and engage in some multi-player Robot fisticuffs in many of the online battle modes.

How do I create a Party?

  • There are a couple of different ways to add players to a party:
    • Click on the individual + icons in the top left of the main game screen and enter a friend’s username
    • Click on your friends list and then right-click on the friend you want to add to your party and select ‘add to party’ (please note, they must be online to add them to a party).

What is CPU?

      • All robots in Robocraft rely on CPU (Computational Processing Unit) and every cube which is added to a robot has a cost. Once this CPU limit is reached, players can no longer add new cubes to their robot.

How do I get more CPU?

      • Everyone has the maximum amount of CPU (2,000) regardless of player level

How do I get more experience points?

      • Players earn more experience in-game by taking part in both single and multiplayer matches. Having premium will also give you an XP b

What is the highest Player Level?

      • The highest Player Level you can reach is 10,000.

What is the quickest way to kill an enemy Robot?

      • Equip lots of weapons on your Robot and make it as agile as you can so that you’re a hard target to hit.

How often is Robocraft updated with new content, game modes, etc.?

      • Robocraft tends to relieve major updates at a frequency of once a month, but this cadence can go up and down.

What is BRAWL mode?

      • BRAWL mode is our exciting game mode where we like to mix things up a bit with new mechanics, new maps, and crazy ways to play Robocraft that will require you to build custom Robots to win. A BRAWL could feature one of the following game modes: Battle Arena, Team Deathmatch, Elimination or The Pit.

Can I publish YouTube videos of Robocraft, and can I monetize from them?

      • Yes, it’s great if you publish videos of Robocraft on YouTube, and it’s fine to monetize from them.

How do I get into the Red Team?

      • You are always in the blue team, the enemies are colored red on your PC and on their PC you are red.

How does the match-making work?

      • The Match Making system takes into consideration a player’s recent win:loss record as well as the number of players in their party. It uses these parameters to try and balance the two teams as fairly as possible.

Ahhhh I can’t upload my robot to the Community Robot Factory!

      • You need to ensure that the robot has both a title and a description.

My robot has flipped in the arena, help!!

      • Stuck? Press F on the keyboard while in a battle to get yourself the right way up.

How can I save time when building robots?

      • A great time saver when building a symmetrical robot is using the mirror mode. Simply press M on the keyboard when in ‘Edit’ mode. Or use the BodyBuilder tool to use some pre-made chassis shapes

How do I move my robot around the garage floor?

      • Use the arrow keys on your keyboard. Pressing the < and > keys will move your robot up and down vertically.

Can I create a duplicate of one of my existing robots?

      • Yes! Simply select the Robot you want to duplicate and press the ‘copy’ button

How do I sell things?

      • You cannot sell robot parts, you can recycle them for Robits. Robits can then be used to ‘forge’ new parts.
      • If you have built a cool robot, you can upload it to the ‘Community Robot Factory’ where other players can ‘buy it’ using Robits. You will then earn a percentage of Robits every time a player uses your Robot in a battle.

What are Robits?

      • Robits, are ‘Bits of Robots’ (hence the name) that are obtained by recycling unwanted robot parts.

How do I recycle parts for Robits?

      • Click on the recycle cube icon in the top navigation bar.

What do the Helium Cubes do?

      • Each Helium Cube applies a constant force upwards.
      • This force is reduced with vertical velocity, so it rises slowly (like a balloon).
      • Helium Cubes also have high ‘drag’, so adding them to your Robot will stabilize it in flight, but will also slow it down

I can not log into the game and I have verified my account, what do I do?

Is Robocraft Pay to Win? Can I pay to win my games?

    • No, Robocraft is not ‘Pay 2 Win’. All robot parts can be obtained for free in Robocraft. To win in Robocraft, you need skills in both robot building and battling.
    • A premium membership will give you double XP which allows you to progress through the levels faster. But this will not give you an advantage over other players. Again, winning games requires skill in both robot building and battling.

How can I get more Robits?

    • You can obtain more Robits in a number of different ways:
      • By doing well in battles – Robit rewards are based on your performance in battle
      • By recycling unwanted Robot parts
      • By having others play your Robots that you have uploaded to the CRF
      • By being part of a Clan and participating in battles – XP is converted into Robits and paid at the beginning of each month (for the previous month’s XP earned)
