Strategy[edit | edit source]

Gauss Fabricator is extremely cost efficient in the long run, getting you up to Attack8 constant attack through Gauss Cannons built over its Lifespan8 Lifespan. That makes it a good investment in slow high economy games, especially games where you expect huge breaches at the end, as the sturdiness of the produced Cannons might let you outlast your opponent and manage to win even if you were breached first.

Conversely, Gauss Fabricator is not the best choice in fast-paced games where your opponent is liable to breach you quickly and destroy your economy with aggressive units like Feral Warden and Grimbotch. Once you can't buy defense anymore, they only have to whittle the Cannons down.

Gauss Fabricator is also a bad choice against snowbally red units like Amporilla and Lucina Spinos that will quickly win the game if you don't pressure them.

Thanks to the high amount of Fragilehealth it provides overall, Gauss Fabricator is a nice addition to your build when going for a breach me I don't care strategy.

Openings[edit | edit source]

Gauss Fabricator has some excellent options available for rushing into play with various cheap drones. For example, player 1 can open with:

  1. DD
  2. DC +Galvani Drone
  3. CC +Galvani Drone
  4. Gauss Fabricator

or

  1. DD
  2. C +Doomed Drone x2
  3. CC
  4. Gauss Fabricator

and

  1. DD
  2. DDE
  3. C +Doomed Drone x3
  4. CC +Doomed Drone x2
  5. Gauss Fabricator +Doomed Drone x2


Player 2 needs no fast drones to get a turn 4 Fab:

  1. ... DD
  2. ... DDC
  3. ... DCC
  4. ... Gauss Fabricator


However, with standard Drones only, player 1 can still get a Fab on turn 4, but would rather wait till turn 5 with the next build:

  1. DD
  2. DD
  3. DDC + 2 gold
  4. DDCC
  5. Gauss Fabricator + 2 gold


The following diverted line is only for getting a Blastforge 1 turn earlier vs rushing. Needs to weigh about 4Gold of value on the turn the user blocks to pay for inefficiency costs.

  1. DD
  2. DD
  3. DCC
  4. DD (6 gold float)
  5. Gauss Fabricator (7 gold left)


Here is the turn 4 Fab build for player 1:

  1. DD
  2. CC
  3. DD
  4. Gauss Fabricator

It works well with units such as Venge Cannon or Tantalum Ray.
