Planetary Annihilation Pounder

Info

The Bolo is a staple unit in most ground armies due to its high damage, high health, and versatility. Bolos are less maneuverable and slower than bots, making them less ideal for raiding, but their high DPS makes them more ideal for large army clashes and braking through defensive lines.
