Smelter Bot Tips/Notes

  • To do any real damage to Smelter Bots, you must wait for the side or rear panels to open and expose its internal wiring. Unfortunately, this is usually when they are ejecting a mist of coolant that slows Warren down and prevents Stamina regeneration. It is best to get in a few attacks, then dodge back out, to avoid being caught up in the slowing mist.  If you're good at hitting while moving, it's also reasonably easy to just stay ahead of it's grinding head by circle-strafing, and just backing out of the mist when you need stamina or to avoid a ground slam.
  • Occasionally the Smelter Bot will whip it's 'neck' around. This attack has a very wide range, so be careful. It will sweep twice, the second being farther than the first. It is advisable to stay well clear when the Smelter Bot is initiating this attack, but it is possible to avoid it while sticking close.  It's other primary attack is a ground slam wherein it raises it's body up higher than normal, and then drops.  The ground slam does quite a bit of damage, and will also knock you over if you're caught in it, which tends to give the grinder head time to rotate over you for a killshot.
  • You can knock down the smaller back legs to force the Smelter Bot to stop rotating it's neck and doing ground slams - it won't stay down long, but it's good for either getting in a few good hits on an opened side panel, or a strategic retreat to regenerate stamina and heal.

      To force their side panels to open use your vertical attacks. For instance, on keyboard and mouse it's Right Mouse Button. To kill the one in Resolve Biolabs (the one standing on acid) get Elite Hazard Legs (http://thesurge.wiki.fextralife.com/Elite+Hazard+Leg+Gear) from enemies on the next level, i.e. the UTOPIA Project area where you find Dr. Gene Barett.

        It has a third attack where it lunges its neck straight out. It is very easy to dodge, but it has much longer range than its spin attack.
