War Robot is customizable, and you can change weapons and parts, as well as abilities and pilots.

There is also an element called Special Cosmetic Upgrades, which may be prepared as cosmetic items that can change the appearance of the robot.
Some of the objects in the stage can be destroyed, so the strategy of destroying walls and shields to let the line of sight through will also be a feature.
