Zoom is a playable Shockbot in Minion Warfare. He is the marksman/sniper of the team. His main attack is the Sniper Shot, a sniper rifle-like weapon. He is also able to set up Jawtraps in the ground, sneak around inside of Camo Bush, or Zoom-In to pick off opponents from far awar. His Minion rival is Chucky. He is voiced by Justin Wolfe.
"No one is completely sure of who Zoom is, what his real name is, or where he came from. He just sort of appeared in the draft office of the Shockbot Corps. What IS evident? He obviously suffered some sort of head trauma. With his sanity questionable and the word 'zoom' being the only word in his vocabulary, Zoom is clearly not right in the head. Zoom is ALSO clearly not the right Shockbot to be hired as Bronzhilda's new sniper, but as it turns out, he was the only recruit who even applied for the job."

Zoom should play far from normal combat, as it is very outclassed by the brawler or heavy classes in closer encounterments. Finding vantage points and camping there will allow a Zoom to snipe off his opponents with ease, sometimes catching opponents off-guard. Zoom should also be weary of nearby Chompers, who may be able to burrow underneath it and kill it instantly. Staying out of sight is suggested in that aspect. Planting a Jawtrap when backing away from approaching enemies is a good tactic.
When Zoom is placed strategically, it can provide helpful support to all nearby plants by wounding or killing nearby Minions. Keeping it protected is important too, as many of the Minions can easily take out Zoom if they manage to get near it.
When up against a Zoom, it is important to keep behind cover. Making quick shots at the Zoom by randomly popping out of cover can confuse it, and allow the Minions to deal more damage to it than it can to them. Chompers can burrow underneath them, allowing for an easy kill while the Zoom is attacking another Minion.
