Stealth doesn't allow enemies to lock onto your robot. An effective means to deal with weapons that require lock on (Hydra, Scourge, etc.). When in stealth, a crossed-out eye symbol replaces the cloaked player's name. Status effect icon:
Weapons requiring target acquisition to be fired (Hydra, Scourge, etc.) are ineffective against robots in stealth. However, stealth doesn't make a robot invincible. Though it is difficult — vertical auto-aim becomes disabled — but still possible to aim at your target manually. Splash damage from rocket weaponry (Pin, Orkan, etc.) and weapons with wide bullet/projectile spread (Thunder, Gust, etc.) are most effective here.
Stealth doesn't make a robot invincible — it can still take damage from various sources:
- If projectiles are directed straight at your robot. There's no need to lock on a target in this situation;
- Your robot suffers area damage (Hellburner's explosion);
- Your robot has a Corrosion effect;
- An opponent activates Quantum Radar that negates the effect of Stealth.
NOTE: Loki's ability has a state where Stealth mode is active until it is canceled by a commander.
