The Soldier-bot

Soldier Robots appear in Mann vs. Machine as enemies.

Normal variants

Soldier bots behave like human Soldiers, rushing into battle using with their Rocket Launchers as a primary means of attack. By itself the Soldier bot isn't a terrible threat, but nothing in this game mode comes "alone". A squad of Soldier bots becomes a quick problem as you may be faced with a barrage of rockets coming your way. Soldier Robots reload when they have time, and fire when they see an enemy.

With extended buffs that last up to 90 seconds long, these Soldiers can keep their allies beefed up for most of their journey across the map. They come in Buff Banner, Battalion's Backup and Concheror variants.

Another variant of the Extended Buff Soldier, exclusive to Caliginous Caper, uses the Direct Hit in combination with the Buff Banner. Unlike the other variants, these Soldiers do not have "Extended Buff" in their names, and use the regular Soldier bot icon.

Similar to the Giant Charged Soldier, but does not fire until it has a full clip reloaded. When it does, it will shoot a flurry of rockets that are shot out in a very rapid succession. Players should be aware of when it's firing and when it's reloading; an unaware and unattentive player will likely result in a quick death.

This is the juggernaut of all the Soldier robots. Similar to the Giant Soldier, Giant Charged Soldier and the Giant Burst Fire Soldier, it will not fire until it has a full clip reloaded. When it does, it will shoot all of its crit rockets in rapid succession, killing anyone who is unaware or even too close to the attack. All players must take extreme caution to eliminate this robotic threat, as its extremely high health, health regeneration and crit-boosted rockets can be a major problem.

Unused content

  • There is an unused version of Major Crits that uses the Black Box, wears the Team Captain and Fancy Dress Uniform, and has only 40000 HP. It is referred to as T_TFBot_Chief_Soldier_Atomic just like Sir Nukesalot is referred to as T_TFBot_Chief_Demo_Atomic, suggesting it was at one point intended to be used instead of Sir Nukesalot.
    • There is also an unused icon for Major Crits in the game files. Suggesting that he was wearing a Sergeant's Drill Hat. But it was replaced with Gatebot Helmet.
