Robots are producable units that gives your ship certain bonuses during flight. Robots can assist the player until the specified battery time has passed. Not to be confused with Quest-bots, robots can be produced in the factory , bought in the Shop or obtained from Mystery boxes and Lockboxes. Note that on ships with multiple slots for robots you can only fit each type of robot once (although you can fit one standard and one gold of the same type).
There are also platinum versions of the robots. These are also approximately 28-29% more effective than the normal robots. They can be bought in the shop for Solar. Unlike the gold versions, the platinum versions don't upgrade when the normal version is upgraded. They need to be upgraded separately.
