Simple Tricks to Defeat Enemy COGs:
Written by Hab

So you are strugeling with the COGs? They do have some advanages in terms of not having 
to reload and hitting every shot. But there are some small tricks on how to defeat them 
on every try. Even the hardest ones... So lets get started!

-=Simple Gun Mechanics=-
The shotgun is currently the only gun ingame so understanding how to use it is important 
to fight the COGs. The shotgun is currently not projectile based. So its mechanics are 
simple. And can easily be represented with numbers. Reloading the shotgun takes aproximatly 
3 seconds, the cogs dont need to reload. And it has a firerate at about 1 second per shot. 
This means that you can shoot 2 shots every 4 seconds. the COGs shoot every one and a half 
seconds so they output a little more shots then you do. The shotgun has a range of 40 meters 
which is a little shorter then the length of the submarine. One thing thats really importaint 
to know about the shotgun is that the further away you are from your target the less damage 
you deal. so try to get as close to your target as possible while maintaining a safe distance. 
Remember that you can also use your pickaxe to deal damage. so if you have to reload and you 
know that the COG is low, hit it with your pickaxe to save some hp of yourself.

-=COG Classes=-
There are 4 different COGs in the game. Knowing how to counter each type of COG is key to 
getting past theese annoyiong robots. All the different COGs have the same damage, the 
difference is their HP. The first kind of COG you will encounter are the red COGs. Theese 
are the weakest COGs, but can still be dangerous in masses. Theese COGs take two shots 
from medium range before they die. Meaning that if you hit your shots properly you will 
kill one without having to reload. They can only be found in area 1 around lavalakes, in 
the towns, and scattered close to surfacing locations for the drillship. However its is 
not in the lavasource in area 1. To kill them is pretty easy, if there is only one sprint 
towards it untill your within its range and fire both your shots. If there are multiple 
you should find a tree or a rock to peak around. Try to be the first one to shoot so that 
you may get one picked off early.

The next COG you will encounter are the green COGs. They can be found both in area 1 and 
2 and are a little more dangerous then the red COGs. They take 3 shots with the shotgun 
at close and medium range.They are located in the towns where there are tech in area 1, 
at area 1s lavasource and they are scattered around area 2 just like the red COGs. To 
kill this COG is a litle different then the red one. If there is only one COG charge at 
it take two shots and finish t with the pickaxe. However if there are other COGs around, 
make them chase you, maybe around a building or a rock. With your sprint you are a little 
faster then them so be just so far ahead that they dont get to stop to shoot. Only turn 
around to empty you magazine.

The next COG is where it gets really challenging. The blue COG can be found in area 2 in 
villages with tech, in area 2s lavasource, and scattered around area 3. The blue COGs are 
able to take 4 shots at short/medium distance. To counter this you again have to use your 
higher speed to you advantage. If you only meat one of them you can play around any 
obstacle large egnouth to cover you just like with multiple green ones. If you have 
multiple chasing you you should get a larger cover like a building or a larger rock. Trees 
and moust ores will not provide you with egnouth cover here. Make them chase you and sprint 
when reloading, turn around to shoot when you are out of sprint, and sprint again when 
reloading. make them all follow you the same way around the rock so you dont run into one. 
Then they might shoot eachother aswell which makes it easier for you.

The final COG in your path is the black COGs. There are a few around area 3, but they are 
moustly in area 3s lavasource and the volcano. This is the real deal. They take a total of 
4 shots. To counter theese COGs you have to play safe. They usually spawn in groups of 2 
or 3 so you will rarley find one alone. If you do however there is always more around. To 
kill them, you have to use ur cover as best as you can. I is basically the same playrules 
as with the blue COGs, but this fight will go on for longer. if you get on low health you 
can use ur healthpack mid fight. just dont stop because they will catch up fast and finish
 you. The COGs are easy to spot, so when you se one make sure you find good cover before 
you engage. As always its best to take the first shot at them to gain the advantage.

-=Defending the Drillship=-
One of the worst things that can happen to you is that you are far away from your drillship 
gathering some tech or matirials, and then it gets attacked by COGs. There are a few things 
you can do to prevent this. First off all, always assume there are some COGs around when 
you surface. Take a look in your periscope on your way up, and take a round around you 
drillship to see if you can spot any. And take them out before you leave the ship. You 
can also learn where the COGs patrol at the location you commonly use through expirience 
so that will come the more you play the game.

When fighting COGs around the drillship start by getting their attention. You want them 
shooting as little as possible at your ship. Try to make them chase you inside the 
drillship or around any close cover you can find. You dont want them to chase you around 
your ship as there is little to hide behind when they catch up. Inside the drillship try 
to tank as many hits as possible. If there are multiple they will kill eachother pretty 
quicly because of the tight space. You dont want them to damage your equipment! See how 
to counter each type of COG above to better fight each type.
