I'd rather staple my left testisack to a bears paw and watch it try to slap it off while i furiously masturbate with a cheese grater than play this for another 12 seconds.

First, It was fun and enjoyable for the first thirty minutes or so, but it got just overused, everyone with a bs abuseive loadout that just destroys anyone who can't deal with it. There isn't any balance, heavy parts arn't more expensive or actually help, recently just one gun has destroyed my experiance, it's a rocket launcher that spams TNT sticks that just ♥♥♥♥ everything, It wasn't a bad game, just terrible balance and no progression.

Pros:
. gameplay is nice and fun

Cons:
. One of the worst microtransaction games i've ever come across. Seriously 8000 sparks for a bloody paint? That's almost $100 for a paint...A PAINT.

One of the worse games I've had the honer of playing. The concept is great but its anything from playable.
The three mayor concerns with this game is.

A. There is no matchmaking to speak off. The game tries to put up equal teams but it cant so every game is stacked and one team ALWAYS rampages the other.
B. The game is mostly played (as most f2p) by east block players and Russians on their dial up modems with even ISP on dial up modems. Result a good base of players warps all over the map and abuses this by using high speed bots.
C. There are hundreds and hundreds of bots to combine out of several different parts, alas there are only about 3 viable concepts that everyone uses. So youlle constantly face the same bots and the only way to beat them is using the same bots and getting the drop on them.

It is however free to play so I wouldnt say not to give it a try. The microtransaction system is extremely fair and well implemented (big thumbs up there). Compiling your bot out of different components however is rather puzzling as there are quite a few stats and they arent very easy to compare (also see remark C).
Another big thumbs up is map design. They are very very small, but extremely well designed making them a pleasure to play as they make use of the Y axes unlike any game Ive seen before.

Right off the bat, the guns feel awkward to aim. What makes this worse is that for the first hour or so of play, your weapons will feel like PEASHOOTERS. Even when i had enough cash to purchase a flamethrower that the shop said dealt "heavy dps close up", i was point blank shooting with it for 10 seconds, and they showed no signs of damage.

The module system is confusing to get in to, as instead of just buying weapons, this game sneakily makes you purchase weapon PARTS (two, to be fair.) The same for all other main robot parts; everything comes in 2 pieces.

For a free game, and with only 800 mb, it isn't the worst. But still not worth it.

There are many things wrong with this game.

1. This game has tiers, like in Robocraft, so you aren't supposed to be put with people who will annihilate you in one shot. However, I was put in a match with one of the top 10 players on the enemy team. They one-shotted me, and later, two others, on my team. To put this into context, destroying an enemy robot in this game can take over 10 seconds of non-stop fire.

2. As I mentioned before, this game has tiers. But you can only 'tier-up' when you upgrade your robot's parts. However, the only thing upgrading parts does is give them more health, except weapons, which get more damage as well as more health. This means, in higher tiers, your robot will have more health and do more damage. This also means every other robot will have more health and do more damage. What's the point? Am I missing something?

3. There is no progression in this game. Yes, you can upgrade your robot, but as I said, the whole 'upgrading' system is linear and useless.

4. There are very few people playing it. Getting into a match doesn't usually take any more than about 30 seconds, but being put into matches with, quite often, the same people, who are quite often, using the same robot each time, can get repetitive, especially when they use over-powered weapons.

5. You will occasionally get a box as a reward after completing a match. You can open these boxes with credits, the in-game currency, with a success rate as low as 0.25%, upto 5%. Failed attempts will not destroy the box, only the tools. You can alternatively pay real money in exchange for 'sparks', which you can use to open the box first time. This wouldn't be a problem if it weren't for the fact that these crates can give unique robot parts. That's right, people who pay real money get an advantage over those who don't.

Personally, I have enjoyed this game so far, but I simply cannot recommend it to anyone.

It was fun. For the first few hours.
yeah, you start like "Oh, I'm so good."

Then people show up, being stupid with the most op weps and one shotting your juggernaut robot. WHAT IS THAT?! So much for your Durability that's 3 quarters full. Then there is one weapon that fires 4 sticks of dynamite that explode on impact and do average damage. Multiply it by 4, because that's how many weapons you can have at a time. I use a tank-like robot, and I die with 2 shots of that. I'm using teir 3 heavy armor. That should not be happening.

Balance the stupid guns and chasis and stuff, so I don't die against a tiny medium weapon.

NERF. THE. FREAKING. GUNS. AND. I. WILL. ENJOY. IT. MORE.

Oooh, Guns and Robots... It is such a shame how unpopular you are. Sure, you are not the greatest game out there, suffering a number of issues both big and small... But deep down there is a fun game here.

Alas, what holds G&R back so hard is it's balancing and small, unsocial community. With any game that allows you to build your own weapon, there are bound to be dirty players who exploit this fact and abuse it to create frustrating builds that take the fun out of the game and either force you to build your own cheap build, or just attempt to tough it out and try your best to beat them (And if you have skills, chances are you will at the very least do a considerable amount of damage to their bot).

As for the community, there is hardly anyone left... On average, there is probably around 150-100 players daily, if you are lucky.. Often this means fighting the same people over and over (said people probably being the cheap builds that frustrate you so), meaning it gets dull seeing the same robot over and over, nothing new and creative coming your way, and even worse for noobs to the game who get put together with level 80 vets. Even moreso, the community is very quiet for the most part, not much chattering going on between players, which further makes the game feel empty.

Does this mean the game isn't worth playing? Hell naw, when I first started playing, I really enjoyed it. It is fun making your own personal robot that suits your playstyle, mixing and matching parts and painting them all up to make a fancy killing machine that people will easily remember and adore/fear, and when you join a guild, it is fun working together to gather enough money to help invest in the guild to purchase buffs that give you a slight edge against your rivals. That, and the fact that this is the most generous F2P game I played in a long time, where all the things you can buy with real money don't have serious impact in the game, keeping it fun for everyone.

If you do plan on playing this, though, I suggest you bring some friends... It is much more fun when you have a crew you can rely on instead of having to go solo and risk having to be paired up with bots... yeah...

The game was fun for about 10 minutes until everyone started spamming with the TNT and sniper rifles, and all the parts do practically the same thing.

Good concept, but absolute lowzy execution.
It starts off looking good, but quickly turns P2W, do not install.

UI is clunky as hell

Nice game, Let down by no matchmaking at all. Would be good if it matched up robots of equal damage but it dosen`t forcing you to spend money or grind as someones ♥♥♥♥♥ till you have enough in game currency.

Fun for the money spending win at all costs type who dont want a fair fight, Suits the War thunder crowd down to the ground. PAY 2 WIN.

Mini.

I really want a game like this, but this just isnt it. The cartoon style graphics are representative for the whole gameplay. It's clunky, cheesy and poorly balanced. Oh well, and P2W, so yeah... no.

At present, Guns And Robots is more than a bit of an unbalanced mess. The game divides up robots you create into weight classes and 'Tier' ranks, in an attempt to make sure that any robot you design will never face down a robot considered to be 'more powerful' or in a higher 'weightclass'. Unfortunately this system is extremely broken and is constantly getting exploited by experienced players so they can game the system and earn fast coin.

The basic issue is that right now.. since robots are so highly customizable, every individual part needs to be invidually 'scored' based upon its power curve and over all effectiveness. Two Dragonov (Spelling?) Sniper Rifles, while considered Heavy Weapons, can actually be bolted onto a light weight robot chassis and have only minimal impact on your over all speed. This allows for high speed, high maneuverability designs that still pack a heck of a damage _punch_. This problem compounds even further when you move up from a 2-Weapon Robot Frame to a 4-Weapon Robot Frame. 4 Sniper Rifles, or 4 Hailfire Rocket Launchers basically allow you to faceroll over most of the competition, yet still somehow keep your robot ranked in the "Tier 1" ("Lightweight") groupings.

If you want a 'build your own robot' game with a ranking system that WORKS, go try "RoboCraft". "Guns And Robots", at present, is an unbearable mess.
