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.

Soldier (Type 2)

This rare variant of the Soldier-bot carries the Cow Mangler 5000, their 80% damage reduction to buildings means they pose less of a threat to an Engineer's buildings, they are otherwise identical to a normal Soldier-bot. They do not fire charged shots.

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 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.

Blast Soldiers can send players flying across the room, making it very difficult to hit the robot horde.

Giant Robots

Every type of giant robots move at half the regular speed of the Soldier. They cannot be slowed, disabled, and instantly killed by backstab.

This is a variant of the Giant Rapid Fire Soldier, and has similar stats. However, 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.

Giant Charged Soldier

Equipped with the Original, Giant Charged Soldiers always fire critical hit rockets. The rockets move more slowly, though, at half the speed of regular rockets, and can be easily dodged by wary players.

Pictogram minus.png Does not fire until fully reloaded


This robot is similar to the first type of Giant Burst Fire Soldier, but it deals double damage and has 100% critical hits. Although it does fire slightly slower than the original, this robot's attack can be deadly as the rockets move faster and deals more damage.

Similar to its smaller counterpart, it has the ability to heal itself entirely upon hitting an enemy, and fires 3 rockets in a single blast. A Medic's Projectile Shield upgrade, a Heavy's Minigun ability to deflect projectiles, and a Pyro's Compression blast can help destroy or reflect the projectiles. This can make it much easier to destroy these giants. It can easily carry the bomb all the way to the hatch or capture a gate if it keeps dealing out damage to heal itself. Otherwise, it has the same attributes as the Giant Soldier.

Fires a slow-moving wall of rockets at players and has a large health pool to help it endure damage long enough to fire again at any surviving enemies. You can always find him in a pair with a Giant Medic. This robot is essentially a crit-boosted version of the aformentioned Colonel Barrage.

Bosses

These robots are the giant of the giants. Although they move at the same speed, they possess significantly more health, more firepower, and larger size. Luckily, there are health bars displaying their health status when they're alive.

Similar to the non-boss Major Crits, but has 32,000 health from the previous 4200 HP and regenerates 250 HP from the previous 40. Otherwise, they're identical. Medic's shield is possibly one of the best defensive counter to them. This robot only appears in the 4th wave of Metro Malice (Operation Two Cities, Mannhattan. Also appearing 1 wave before the stronger type of Chief Blast Soldier). 37 seconds after he's deployed 4 Force-A-Nature super Scouts with the bomb will appear from upstairs, it's best to have them halted and killed before the entire team refocuses on Major Crits again. This is the weakest boss out of every boss in the game.

Chief Blast Soldier

The father of Giant blast Soldier and grandfather of regular blast Solder. Their rockets are not crit-boosted and doesn't have any damage boost, making them the least damaging Soldier boss in the game. However, their rockets have insane knockback power, enough to send a heavy flying across a room. Bodyblocking (standing in the robot's path) can be mildly effective until the robot focus on you, which then they will shoot you to knock you out of its way. Heavies can be ineffective against him since the knockback can force Heavies to reposition himself several times in one fight.

This is the juggernaut of all the Soldier robots and he's arguably the strongest robot in the entire game. 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. This robot is the final boss of the mission Broken Parts (Operation Mecha Engine, Bigrock) and he will only be supported by Sniper and Spies. Although there are plenty of available cash to deal with him.

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.
  • There is an unused boss variant of the Giant Concheror Soldier called "Chief Concheror Soldier" except it is larger and has 50,000 HP.
