What Makes Neymar Jr’s Pilot Special?

While most robot games don't involve a soccer ball, Neymar Jr's speed, power and agility have been reimagined to create the strongest Pilot in the Mech Arena roster so far.

He gives a bonus of up to +35% to all Missile Weapon and Assault Weapon damage as he levels up. Additionally, he comes with the amazing Sprinter Perk. From the first Level, it adds 40% to your Sprint Duration and reduces Sprint Cooldown by a massive 40% too. To top this off, he even has 4 Implant Slots! What a hero!

Like his real-world counterpart, Neymar Jr in Pilot form is “one in a million.” To represent this, we’re introducing a brand-new level of Rarity called Limited Edition, making Neymar Jr the first Pilot in the game to represent this all-new class of collectible Pilots.
