Forging is another form of progression in which lower-tiered bots or modules are consumed in order to power up higher-tiered bots or modules. Forging raises the attack, health, and class power stats of bots and modules.
The higher the tier, rank, and level of the bots and modules that are forged, the greater the benefits they provide. Consumed bots and modules also provide Ore-13 and Gold based on their tier, rank, and level. With a bit of luck, some rare bonus items may be found as well.
Bots will only be able to consume other bots, and modules will consume other modules. Only 2-star bots and modules and above can be forged.
What Is Class Power?
The class power of your bot or module governs the strength of their class bonus. The higher your class power, the more your attack increases and the more the enemy's attack decreases when you have a class advantage.
For example, Scout bots have class advantage over Tech bots, which have a class advantage over Demolitions bots, and so on.
How Can I Access the Forge Feature?
From the main menu that drops down from the top of the screen, tap the BOTS tab to open your bot inventory. Tap on any bot for a list of actions that may be performed on that bot. Select the FORGE button to enter the forge screen. Switch to the MODULES tab to access forging for modules.
Forging can also be accessed directly from the bot/mod details screen. Look for a green button near the bottom of the left panel.
My FORGE Button Is Grey...What Is Wrong?
The FORGE button is disabled if:
- You do not meet the requirements or do not have enough bots/modules to forge.
- You are attempting to forge a 1-star bot or a 1-star module, as these cannot be forged.
What Are the Costs and Requirements?
The forge feature should become available once your roster of bots or modules is large enough. You must own a minimum of 13 bots or eight modules before forging becomes available, and those bots must be across more than one tier.
Here Are Some of the Basic Requirements:
Only bots whose tier is lower than the target bot can be forged. For example, a 4-star bot accepts 1-star, 2-star, or 3-star bots, but a 2-star bot only accepts 1-star bots. The same rules apply to modules. Bots that are of the same tier cannot be forged. You cannot consume a 4-star bot in order to power up another 4-star bot. Again, the same rules apply to modules.
What Happens When I Consume a Bot That Is the Same as the Target Bot?
You can unlock the maximum potential of your target bot using the same bot one tier below the target. This one-time-only bonus will raise the maximum forge level of the target bot permanently, increasing its maximum potential. The above bonuses also apply to modules.
Why Would I Want to Remove a Bot from My Inventory?
As you progress through the game, you acquire and upgrade many different bots. Eventually, you may acquire bots that are so powerful that you use them everywhere and leave your other, weaker bots behind.
The forge feature ensures that the effort you put into those weaker bots can still be put into your strongest bots. In essence, forging ensures bots are never obsolete, even if you stop using them because they can still serve the purpose of enhancing those at the top of your roster.
