The Zephyrobot is a drone beacon deployed through the namesake support power from the Robot Ops Control Center, which allows Pacific Front Zephyrs to bombard enemies from locations far beyond their normal attack range as long as the beacon remains on the field for 40 seconds, allowing a Zephyr to fire at most 6 times. However, taking direct hits from Zephyrs' long-range attack damages the Zephyrobot and reduces its durability.
Since version 3.3.4, Zephyrobot is unused by AI.
- In Death From Above, the enemy will continuously set Zephyrobots to player's base and let all Zephyrs attack it. In addition, Zephyr's damage to buildings is increased in this mission. It is worth noting that these Zephyrobots are deployed by trigger, since the AI will not attack normal Zephyrobots.
- The Zephyrobot is first usable in the campaign in Stormbringer.
Behind the scenes
- During the development of version 3.3, the Zephyrobot was supposed to be merged with the old Cryofield, which slows enemy units down, and become cost-free, but this was never implemented.
