Maintenance Robots, nicknamed "Beavers", are large and slow, but their electrical spark welder can be a painful weapon when used against a human.

Maintenance Robots are well armored, and can take a lot of punishment. At the stage of the game where you'll be facing Maintenance Robots, your best weapon will be armor-piercing bullets. Their spark welder shots are not terribly accurate, so if you can engage them at long range, they may hit you only rarely, even during an extended battle.

You'll see your first Maintenance Bot at the very end of the MedSci Deck. They are quite frequent on the Engineering Deck, but later in the game they are mostly replaced by more formidable models. After destroying one, you should search its chassis for salvageable equipment.

Strategic Analysis

  • Because of their bulk, Maintenance Bots (and Security ones, too) don't corner well. One of the best ways to take out a Maintenance Bot when your defenses are minimal is to fall back to a position where the Bot will have to come through a door and turn to get you. This will allow you to either squeeze off three or four quick shots while it's turning, or take your shot and fall back to around another corner.
  • A good strategy against all big bots in general is to lead them so they will follow us from the left-side corridor. This way their way is obstructed by the corner and they can't shoot. The opposite of this strategy is when they come out from a corridor that leads to our right: they can attack with just a part of their weapon arm around the corner, making it hard for us to attack them.
  • Melee weapon users should approach all the big bots as close as possible, and press on when attacking, preferably from the bots' right side, whey they are harmless (until they turn). Either circle-strafing or pressing on while attacking (assuming they can't aim us) is a good strategy. Of course, their explosion will hurt us in a small way, since it deals high explosive damage.
  • Their weapon deals energy-based damage that can be halved using Energy Reflection.
  • The explosion of this robot deals distance dependent splash damage. This means that the further we are from it, the less damage we'll receive. The maximum damage of 8 is in the very center of the explosion and can only be received if the robot moves towards the player, and the player approaches it from its side, moving fast enough.
