The Pyro-bot

Pyro Robots appear in Mann vs. Machine as enemies. They are mechanical versions of the Pyro. Unlike other robots, they are immune to afterburn, much like the Pyro.

Normal variants

Pyro

Icon Name Primary Attributes
Pyro
Pyro Flame Thrower
Flame Thrower


These robots are equipped with a Flame Thrower and attack up close. They may use their compression blast to deflect most projectiles (see article for list). However, they will not use compression blast to extinguish teammates on fire, often use compression blast late on fast-moving projectiles such as Crusader's Crossbow's arrows and never intentionally shove away Stickybomb traps or enemies. Pyro Robots that appear with and cluster around Giant Robots eventually scatter when the giant is killed. Some Pyro Robots constantly shoot fire regardless of whether there are enemies nearby; this is typically done to both make a Spy's job more difficult and to light the arrows of Bowmen. However, most Pyro Robots that constantly shoot fire never airblast.

This advanced variation of the single Pyro-bot appears only in Caliginous Caper and Broken Parts. Their speed makes them faster than Scout-bots, so don't let them take the bomb. These Pyros are also very skilled at reflecting projectiles and their damage bonus increases damage of reflected projectiles as well. The variant that appears in Caliginous Caper has the same stats as the variants in Broken Parts, but is named "Pyro" and wears the Old Guadalajara hat.

Flare Pyro

Icon Name Secondary Attributes
Pyro flare
Flare Pyro Flare Gun
Flare Gun


This less common variant wields the Flare Gun, allowing it to attack outside of Flamethrower range, although with some difficulty when a target is up close. Their movement behavior is similar to the normal Pyro.

Flare Pyro(Type 2)

Icon Name Secondary Attributes
Pyro
Pyro Detonator
Detonator
Pictogram plus.png +60% fire rate bonus
Pictogram plus.png +80% faster reload rate


This very rare variant of Flare Pyro uses an upgraded Detonator. These Pyro-bots have a single Pyro-bot icon and only appear on the 2nd wave of Mean Machines as a Giant Pyro's support.

Pyro Pusher

Icon Name Secondary Attributes
Pyro flare
Pyro Pusher Scorch Shot
Scorch Shot
Pictogram plus.png 100% crit chance
Pictogram plus.png 25% faster firing speed
Pictogram minus.png 25% slower reload
Pictogram minus.png -65% projectile speed


Another less common Pyro-bot variant wields a permanent crit-boosted Scorch Shot. Its flares travel slower, allowing players to dodge with ease. They can impose a greater threat because it can knock back an unlucky player and set anyone on fire in a small radius.

Fast Scorch Shot

Icon Name Secondary Attributes
Pyro flare
Fast Scorch Shot Scorch Shot
Scorch Shot
Pictogram plus.png 30% faster projectile speed
Pictogram plus.png 25% faster firing speed


This rare variant carries the Scorch Shot like the Pyro Pusher, but its flares travel 3.72 times faster than the Pyro Pusher's ones.

Giant Robots

Icon Name Primary Attributes

Flame Thrower
Pictogram plus.png 3000 HP
Pictogram plus.png +40% knockback resistance
Pictogram minus.png -50% movement speed


Giant Pyro robots are equipped with a Flame Thrower and behave like their smaller counterparts. Giant Pyros are very skilled at reflecting, so be careful if a weapon you have equipped with shoots projectiles.

The Giant Flare Pyro robot wears an Old Guadalajara and is equipped with a Detonator, which can fire accurate shots at a faster rate.

Unused content

  • Three unused Giant Pyro Robot templates exist, one named "Giant Airblast Pyro". Its Degreaser only does 0.05x damage but pushes opponents with five times the force. The second is named "Chief Pyro" and is equipped with the default Pyro loadout, but is larger, has 55,000 HP, regenerates 500 health per second and its airblast pushes opponents with two times the force, and the third is a variation of the Giant Flare Pyro but it wields a Scorch Shot that can knock players back with more force, fires 80% faster, moves 65% slower and does not wear the Old Guadalajara.
