"A simple medical assistant, its occupation is currently listed as "Emergency Paramedic". No current information on its role before the crash is available, and it is unknown if DV8 was prisoner, guard or crew. And everyone wonders where that nickname came from."
Overview[edit | edit source]
Opbot does not do well in a fight, designed to be used in a more supportive role. As a hero with high wit, Opbot fits perfectly as a primary Operator. While not designed to hold a chokepoint alone, his Recycling ability paired with his ability to Repair and the fact that he acquires Master Hacker at level 8 means that most fighting will want to be done in the room with Opbot, so extra industry can be gained.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
A primary operator with strong support skills, Opbot is intended to be used mainly in a room with allies. His Recycling skill is what sets him apart - unlike Soylent Green, Recycling gains its resource when any hero in the room gets a kill, not just the owner of the skill. This makes it even more enticing to sit and camp in the room with Opbot so extra industry can be farmed. His single level of Paramedic, though not particularly strong, is useful for this purpose. Master Hacker and Surgical Striker both are general purpose buffs that are similarly useful but not game-breaking. It is possible to get his DPS pretty high with attack speed reduction items combined with Surgical Striker, but he is still not a primary damage dealer by any means. Overall he is a solid operator that doesn't break the mold at all with the exception of recycling.
Like many operators, Opbot is fairly fragile and weak in combat by himself even with Surgical Striker active. Apart from his niche to industry generation (especially on the Armory Pod), Opbot is useful but doesn't particularly stand out from the crowd.
