OVERDRIVE Update (0.11.1) Patch Notes (April 6, 2023)

These are the patch notes for the War Robots: Frontiers build available following a period of maintenance on April 6, 2023. Update your game to the latest version and start playing in Early Access!


  • Added a new Robot:
    • Siren: This Robot uses its signature ability to take off, hover in the air, and launch a cryogenic missile that applies Freeze to the target. A frozen target can use its weapons and abilities, but cannot move, including turning around. If a target is hit by Siren’s missile while in the air, it will lose momentum and fall to the ground.
  • Added a new Titan:
    • Matriarch: A support Titan that specializes in protecting its allies, Matriarch comes equipped with two shotgun-type weapons, and features outstanding durability, However, this Titan suffers from low movement speed. Check out its three built-in abilities:
      • Nanite Field: Deploy a field of nanorobots that give a boost to all friendly targets within range, increasing their movement speed, overall mobility, and durability regeneration rate.
      • Singulators: Unleash several drones in sequence. The drones hover over the Titan and take down enemy projectiles within their range of effect. The drones move vertically, offering increased protection from enemies on higher ground.
      • Swarm: Emit a swarm of drones that follow the Titan’s movements. All enemies within the swarm take periodic AoE damage and suffer from a decreased rate of fire and accuracy.
  • Added two new weapons:
    • Quantum: Fires a shell that splits up into a cluster of smaller shells after traveling for some time. The first shell deals high damage to a single target, and the second phase shells deal AoE damage.
    • Sticky Gun: Throws quiet sticky bombs for a somewhat stealthy attack. The bombs attach to Robots and hard surfaces on the map and detonate after a short delay, dealing AoE damage.
  • Added two new abilities:
    • Counterattack: Allows the Robot to reflect a portion of incoming damage back at the attacker. The reflected damage will be directed at the nearest piece of the enemy armor. Requires charging.
    • Ghost Turret: The Robot throws a detachable turret that sticks to the ground or walls. The turret will fully deploy after a short time and start firing at enemy targets within its range. The turret cannot be targeted, but it has a limited lifespan and will deactivate after some time.


  • Updated contents of the Store and level rewards.
  • Added account levels up to Level 65. Level rewards above Level 60 contain item blueprints from this update.
  • Increased the Credits cost of all Ability Modules in the Shop.


  • The first iteration of Upgrades includes upgrade levels from 1 to 5 for Robot parts, weapons, and ability modules. Item stats increase linearly.
