Target neutralized!

The Training Bot is a non-playable hero that can be found on the Practice Range and the Tutorial.


Training Bots are color-coded for their team; they are red if they are an enemy and blue if they are friendly. Friendly Bots killing Training Bots (or vice versa) will not appear in the killfeed.

In the Practice Range, some Training Bots will wander along a set path, while others are stationary on a point. If a Training Bot is pulled or pushed off of its path or point, it will make its way back to that location.

Some Training Bots will fire pellets straight forward - firing 9 shots in 3 seconds, then waiting 2 seconds before repeating. Each shot deals 8 damage, regardless of distance.

When a Training Bot dies, there will be an 8-second delay before the bot's parts reform. Reforming takes 1 second and it can be killed when reforming. If being pushed off the path or its fixed location, the bot will try to return to its path/location. If being pushed off the edge, it will die and reform later at a position on its path.
