KNOWN ISSUES:

  • Excessive use of flags on a Megabot will result in severe game lag for the player using the Megabot
  • Setting the Weapon Energy Multiplier in Custom Games to 10% may cause some weapons to not fire. This is caused by a player having less weapon energy available than what is required for a weapon to fire

*With Megabots in Custom Games we wanted to give you the freedom to have maximum Megabot craziness without restrictions. However, depending on your PC’s power/spec, pushing things to the max such as a 5v5 10k Megabot Battle Arena fight may result in some lag.
