OverviewEdit

The Raider Recruit is a promotional soldier unit that was first made available for the week of September 21st, 2013 (through the 28th), for Resource-nanopod 85 Nanopods at the Barracks. The promotional mission, Dawn, gave players a chance to try these units out against enemy Raiders. Note that Resource-SP SP earned by the Recruit during this mission is only permanent if the player has already purchased and fully trained a Raider Recruit.

The Raider Recruit has a giant pool of Stat-HP Health, along with Stat-Armor Armor on top of it, as well as exceptionally high defense and dodge. The Stat-Armor is interesting because it functions simply as added Stat-HP since it does not offer any damage reduction of any kind. In fact, it takes more damage from Damage crushing-type, just like its base Stat-HP. In a way, enemy units with Damage crushing-type attacks will invalidate the Raider Recruit's advantage of high health and armor.

The Raider Recruit starts off with three attacks at their immediate disposal. The Angry Fists weapon requires that the Recruit be placed on the front line, but will attack an entire column and ignores Blocking units, inflicting high damage. The Damage fire-type damage type is interesting in that many units have little to no resistance to it, and in some cases, take more damage from fire (e.g., Mammoths). However, with such low Stat-Offense Offense, it will tend to miss targets completely.

The Rocket Launcher's Vehicle Shot is only intended for Vehicle and Air units. Compared to cannon attacks typical of most Tanks, this attack has higher accuracy, yet for a dedicated "anti-vehicle" attack, the lack of critical bonuses, or any critical for that matter, makes it more of an attack option to use while waiting for the Angry Fists attack to come off of cooldown.

During its limited time release on the week of Sep 21st, 2013, this unit costs as much as a Mega Tank, and while both are Blocking units, the Recruit lacks the damage-reduction of tank armor, making the unit less suitable as a damage sink. Sniper shots tend to rip the Recruit up because they lack Damage piercing-type damage resistance and are a Soldier unit type.

The Recruit was originally touted as "Veteran-like" in that they have similar Stat-HP HP, Black shield Defense, Stat-Dodge Dodge and promotion bonuses in those areas. However, the Veteran is cheaper, has a lower PvP unit value, and its attacks are more focused as opposed to the Recruit's spread out damage. Without any critical bonuses, the above-average promotion costs, and high Resource-nanopod cost makes this unit a tough sell.
