Will one ARM ever heal another nearby ARM? (in Prospector especially)

7 replies 105 views Edited Apr 20, 2013

The Starhawk Wikia entry for "ARM" say, "A.R.M.s are weak, so place them carefully or in pairs (they will repair each other)."

 

I am mainly playing Prospector mode right now (working on Hard difficulty).  Does anyone know if ARMs will indeed repair one another if they are close in Prospector mode, or any other mode?

 

Thanks a bunch, really enjoying this game but Prospector mode comes with lots of highs and lows.

No they do not. I believe that LBI did this to balance it out.

I was pretty sure they didn't.  Thanks a lot.

A welding torch repairs quicker than an arm but arms don't need the continual attention so you can just leave them to do there thing.

They don't heal eah other in any mode nd it's better that way.

 

Imagine an army of carefully placed Arms surrounding a shield fixing themselves and the shield at the same time, cheap!

Not only cheap, but impossible. It would take a grinder to fix this. Grenades and RL would not do the trick.

Oh, one time I had 20 ARMs in rows and drove a tank through. It took .45 seconds for the tank to die. INSANE!

 

Yeah, I had a stopwatch.
