Warbots are the futuristic equivalent of the modern Main Battle Tank. They are powerful weapon platforms, loaded with heavy hardware, but are not as powerful as the mighty Death Machine. They were built in mass during the Shadow Years, but most were destroyed in the conflict. Those few that survived the war can be found guarding old, A.I.-controlled facilities, or mothballed in dusty hangers. Those that did not survived the war litter old battlefields or ruins, but they are just lifeless husks. Considered by many to be the ultimate grudge monster for any annoyed or mildly irritated Gamma World GM. Most robots have excessively high AC, HP and attack modifiers as well as deadly weapons that never run out of ammunition. They are notorious PC killers and best friend of every GM.
