Archon (LW2)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Archon is a flying cyborg soldier. An iteration on the floater from the invasion, they have been redesigned for aesthetics and durability.

Tactically, archons use their flight to gain elevation, flank, and fire on targets with their staff-rifle. Once sufficiently wounded, archons will lapse into a last-ditch frenzy and close to melee with their staff.

While archons cannot take cover, their maneuverable flight system give them enough defense to compensate.
