Description[ | ]

The Robotic Sledge is the simplest form of a turret that can be used automatically or manually for defense. The Robotic Sledge is only active when the owner moves within range of the turret.

The perk Robotics Inventor, one of the Intellect skills, can be upgraded to improve the use of the Robotic Turret.

The recipe above contains the Resources/Magazines needed for each Quality level of the Robotic Sledge.
A higher Quality item may provide better stats at the cost of increased material and unlock requirements.

Manual Mode[ | ]

The Robotic Sledge can be used manually like other weapons by firing with the left mouse button.

Sentry Mode[ | ]

Placing the turret for automatic defense mode is accomplished by right-clicking to activate placement mode. Once the user has decided the placement location and angle, right-clicking again will place the turret. The turret will turn green when placement is available, or red if it cannot be placed in that location. Picking up the turret back up is done with the "e" key. The turret will only actively defend while the user is nearby, without the owning player nearby it will temporarily turn off until the player returns. Typically, only one turret can be actively defending for a given player. If turrets are placed far enough apart from each other, they will switch activity based on which one the user is closer to, regardless of which one has targets.

Assuming the player is within range of both turrets, if one runs out of ammunition the other will then activate.

Achieving level 5 of the perk Robotics Inventor will allow a player to have two active turrets at a time. Optimal use would include one Robotic Turret and one Robotic Sledge, as one provides decent damage and crowd control while the other provides area denial and decent knockdown time.

Trivia[ | ]

  • The Robotic Sledge appears to have humorous words and symbols drawn on it, such as an unhappy face on the end that pummels the zombies, and the word "POW" on the back.
  • The Robotic Sledge will always attempt to aim for center mass, often humorously seeming to pummel zombies in the crotch region. As such, it has gained several rather silly community names including, but not limited to, "D.P.", and "Pummel Peter".
