The Gil-E is a long range sniper bot, ideal for taking out units from afar. Since it can shoot farther than it can see, the Gil-E is most effective when paired with scouts or radar coverage.

The Gil-E can shoot down tactical missiles.

Unlike the Sheller, which fires projectiles at a high arc, the Gil-E fires at a flatter trajectory so it cannot fire over walls or other terrain obstacles. However, the shots do not miss.


In the 54357/54382 update, the speed was reduce from 12 to 11.
