    do you have the ammo upgrade? you could run around killing guards to get ammo in between bot kills

    Hmm, I must be thinking of something else, are you referring to the mission for Torn or the side-mission?

    its the one where 3 bomb bots are trying to destroy the hideout and you have to kill them before they do, trophy for this mission so its main storyline

    Ah yes, this mission
    Well, what I did, after trial and error, is take a vehicle, then speed at the bots and jump off, that does some significant damage (considering the vehicle explodes) then take out your Blaster and keep some distance between you and the bots and just open fire. Then if you run out of ammo, repeat the process with the vehicle and just use your Vulcan Fury on them. It also helps if you jump in and out of vehicles to avoid and Krimson Guards.
    I'm not really good at giving directions, but the gist of what I'm saying is to use your environment to your advantage, keep distance between you and the bots, and above all, keep moving.

    Sorry if this is hard to understand

    Also, remember to periodically kill Krimson Guards if you run low on ammo.

    EDIT: I found this video, it's not exactly what I explained, but some of my recommended methods are used in here (in case you can't understand my directions)

    yeah, that's one of the things they managed greatly when they made Jak 3, they balanced everything out more accurately
    No more overpowered bomb bots, or maybe it's just all the morph gun attachments

    i also noticed that in one mission where i died a bunch i got more time each time i respawned, not that time was the issue, but good to know they added adaptive difficulty to some missions

    alright, back on jak 2 and this mission was no problem on the first try, good strategy is get close and blast away with blue gun until they beep

    Yep, I was just about to say, just get in real close, they can't zap you there.
    Hey. Hey. Look. Look at me. I'm playing video games.

    Yeah, that's what I did. I just didn't suggest it because
    1) you lose ammo fast with the vulcan fury, and
    2) I figured people would try close approach first
