True, but I fear you'll get too close to them to try and make them attack and then they'll hit you (and possibly the other enemies) with their hammer, as they have a longer reach.

Hey Doborg, first of all... that all looks amazing, you've done a great job!!
Secondly, I see in the gifs it seems incredibly difficult, if not impossible to be able to kill the hammer robots with a melee weapon... of course you can just risk it and quickly advance and take a swing, but a lot of the time even if you do hit them, it wont kill them. (unless your lucky with a hand or headshot).
I know we can use the spikes and saws around the map to kill them, and obviously using a bow would be very effective in this case... but is there any way to "RELATIVELY" safely kill these guy with your sword, or even a hammer? I know with the normal sword robots you can trick them to strike and then quickly attack with a horizontal strike and hopefully slice them in half... is it possible to do with these hammer enemies?
It would be awesome if we had some kind of duck upgrade, where we would just barely duck under the swinging hammer.
Apart from that, this update looks great and I cant wait to play it! The count down begins!!!
Enemies that have battleaxes or warhammers could have different armour designs, or even more armour so they were harder to kill. To balance them a bit they could walk slower. I reckon this would be amazing!
Battleaxe - Spend maybe 1 or 2 upgrade points to buy. It has a longer reach than the energy sword, but a slower swing time. Could unbalance enemies without having the unbalance perk.
War hammer - Again cost maybe 1 or 2 upgrade points. Has an even longer range but an even slower swing time. Unbalance enemies further and for longer?
Duel Arrows - Being able to fire two arrows at once? Maybe having a choice of the 300% width arrow, or two 200% arrows that were less accurate? (Cost same energy as one arrow) ((if you buy one option you cant buy the other))
Armour - I think the worst feeling is getting into a high round in titanium and then having one block of your hand cut off and dying... so many implementing buying Armour at the upgrade bot. If not full body armour, you could maybe have to buy a helmet, leg armour and then body armour? Just giving a little more protection and maybe stopping one sword strike and one arrow? (would help with being shot in the back by an unlucky arrow deflected by the mark 3 swordsman) xD
Shield - Buy at upgrade bot for 1 point. Hold in robots left hand and can hold up shield with the rmb. It would disable you from swinging your sword on the left to right side. It would block sword strikes (maybe if the enemies had battleaxes or warhammers the shield would break or you would be stunned)?. It could also block arrows. You could make it so you had the choice of whether to buy the shield and be able to block sword strikes and block arrows, or the deflect arrows perks, being able to block swords less reliably or be stunned more easily, but be able to deflect the arrows back. (Again if you bought one, you wouldnt be able to buy the other)
Drone - A circular flying ball with a red eye (weakspot) that would fire arrows at you. it would appear in the silver or gold tier and the commentators would tell you that you would need a bow, or have to use jump pads to kill it.
Boss - Having an enormous robot wielding an execution style battleaxe or a massive warhammer would be amazing. Maybe appearing in the level 20 titanium, or in the story mode as a last level boss. It would have multiple weakspots like spidertron.
I hope you like my suggestions, I love this game and I cant wait to see what you do with it! Thanks!
